Hey everyone, we wanted to finish our game 80 years after 1936 but it will now be 81.
Throughout this year we discussed reducing the scope to make a 2016 release, but we made the difficult decision to delay the launch in order to ship with our vision intact. We are happy to announce that Cuphead will be coming to Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam in Mid-2017.
We are constantly humbled by your continued support. Love you all and can’t wait to get this to you. Without further ado, we will get back to work!
Many thanks to GamesIndustry.biz for making this happen.
We had a fun interview about Cuphead with Warren Spector asking the questions! Check it out: www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2015-08-04-cuphead-x-warren-spector
Wait, what year is it? Where did the calendar go? Time sure flies when you’re pouring your heart and soul into hundreds of frames of animation and refining dozens of boss patterns!
We know we said that Cuphead would be out in 2015 and now we’re saying that Cuphead will be out in 2016. We’re sorry. But this Cuphead isn’t that Cuphead. This Cuphead is so much better. With Microsoft helping us out, we are able to push the art further, refine the mechanics more, and deliver the Cuphead game we’ve always dreamed of. In development, time is our greatest asset, and pushing the release to 2016 allows us to make for the best game possible.
So keep your XBox One and Steam controllers warm over the winter months and we’ll see you in 2016. We promise it will be worth the wait.
So, have a new trailer!
Oh, and have some screenshots too!
We are extremely excited to announce 6-pages of all new content, gameplay & behind the scenes of Cuphead in the next issue of Game Informer. There are tons of new screenshots and more!
