Studio MDHR has announced it is delaying the release of Cuphead’s final DLC The Delicious Last Course, with the aim now being 2021. This is not the first time the DLC has been delayed. Back in July 2019, Studio MDHR delayed The Delicious Last Course aiming to release the content in 2020. In the latest statement the delay has been pinned on the impact of COVID-19 which has interfered with the studio’s ability to work as it intended to on the content. The full statement is below.
While the Delicious Last Course is a continuation of Cuphead and Mugman’s grand adventure, it’s also a conclusion to the story that began on that fateful day at The Devil’s casino. In true Studio MDHR fashion, we aren’t content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work Throughout development, we’ve challenged ourselves to put everything we learned from making Cuphead into the quality of The Delicious Last Course’s animation, design, and music.
Meeting this standard has been extremely challenging for us amid the global pandemic that has affected So many of our fellow developers. Rather than compromise on our vision in response to COVID, we’ve made the difficult decision to push back the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident it will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel if should. We know many of you have been waiting to return to the Inkwell Isles, and our goal is to make the trip back there next year a truly magical one.
With our warmest regards,
Chad & Jared Moldenhauer
