Studio MDHR has announced that it's delaying the launch of the first DLC for Cuphead until 2020.
Called Delicious Last Course, the expansion originally had a 2019 release date, but it's getting pushed back so that the developers can ensure its quality and promote a healthier approach to making video games.
Cuphead DLC Delay
In a blog post, the studio explained why it's postponing the rollout of the Cuphead DLC, saying that it wants to make sure "this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for."
Also, it suggested it's aiming to make a healthier environment for its developers, pointing out that "the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that's healthy and sustainable for our team."
To sum things up, the goal of Studio MDHR seems to be encouraging a better work-life balance for its developers, and to achieve just that, it needs more time to work on the Delicious Last Course DLC.
The company spent a lot of time in creating the base Cuphead game because of its hand-drawn frames. All of it was worthwhile, though, resulting in eye-catching animations and visuals and high praise from gamers and critics alike.
What To Expect From Delicious Last Course
Back in June, the developers posted on Steam some of the details of Delicious Last Course, including "a brand new isle full of delectable adventures for Cuphead and Mugman to gnaw on."
They also said that the DLC will come with an assortment of new weapons and charms, as well as new bosses to take on, but arguably, the crème de la crème of the expansion is the debut of the new playable character Ms. Chalice.
For the record, the DLC is scheduled to arrive to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam, and GOG in 2020.
Despite the delay, the developers did upload a teaser trailer of Delicious Last Course. While it likely won't be enough to tide fans over until 2020, it does give a good look at what's in store.
