Studio MDHR has announced that its unique run and gun platformer, Cuphead, won't be releasing until mid-2017.
Cuphead was initially revealed back at E3 2014, receiving overall positive reception from those at the show. With a unique art style derived from 1930's cartoons, the title emerged as one of the most anticipated indie projects coming to the Xbox One.
This isn't the first time Cuphead has been subject to delays, with the game's original 2015 release pushed back due to major gameplay refinements. Studio MDHR claims that today's delay will help expand the game's scope to meet the original vision.
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.
Today's news comes as little of a surprise, after minor public presence at this year's biggest gaming events. As for now, we'll just have to wait for a more precise launch date over the coming year.
More recently, Cuphead was announced as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning a single purchase game entitles you to both the Windows 10 and Xbox One versions.
