In 2017, Cuphead reached the market, conquering all lucky ones who have had the opportunity to enjoy this game. A year later, in 2018, it was confirmed that a great DLC was already in development. Now, after multiple delays, the Delicious Last Course is finally ready to reach our hands. However, waiting four years for this content is not normal. In this way, The director of Studio MDHR has revealed why they took so much to offer this expansion.
In an interview with Ign, Maja Moldenhauer, director of the MDHR Studio, revealed that the reason why this DLC was constantly delayed in recent years, is that The study gave a priority to the mental health of all the developers. This is what he said about it:
The priority during the Covid was that they were all happy. These are video games and have been. Mental health must be essential and has to occupy the necessary time and space, especially in the last two years. If the launch needs more time, it will take longer. Who cares?
If we are going to risk everything, it will be a company from which we are proud. It will be a company that is, a fusion of all the things we have always wanted. Mutual respect, love and support. Things we do not receive in our previous works. Well, we did it, but at the end of the day there was a final result.
This is a feeling that several studies shared during the last two years. Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course_ will finally be available on all platforms on June 30, 2022 . In related issues, the second season of the animated series already has a release date. Similarly, here you can see a new gameplay of this DLC.
Most Indies studies share this point of view. Companies such as Supergiant Games have also mentioned that priority will always be the mental health of developers. However, it seems that this is a feeling that we rarely see in the AAA industry.
