Cuphead's "Delicious Last Course" DLC was pushed to 2020 to get things right and keep the dev team healthy

Sounds like the right way to do things

Today saw the release of a new trailer for Cuphead's upcoming 'Delicious Last Course' DLC, which ended with the mention of a 2020 release. The DLC was originally slated to launch in 2019, so what happened? Cuphead co-director Chad Moldenhauer explained to Kotaku.

“While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the ‘Delicious Last Course’ expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for. We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of Cuphead and is full of moments that surprise and delight players.

Furthermore, 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. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we’re confident it’s one that will result in a higher quality experience that’s all the sweeter when it does arrive.”

Between Animal Crossing and Cuphead, I am liking this trend of “delaying when it’s necessary to make a product the best it can be and not ruin the lives of the team behind it”. I can always wait, and I hope more companies take note!

Biggest case is SEGA, a company with a history of setting a release date and never pushing it back (and sometimes actually pushing it forward). It's been going on since at least 1992.
