Team Meat has confirmed that Super Meat Boy Forever will not be released in April as planned.
Originally penciled in for release later this month, Team Meat’s sequel to 2010’s breakthrough indie platformer, Super Meat Boy, will now be released “After, but not too far after, April 2019.”
The studio revealed the news to attendees at last week’s PAX East expo, and explained the reasons for the delay in a note posted to Twitter, saying:
“We could have sacrificed our minds, bodies and social lives to make April 2019, but that’s stupid. Team Meat isn’t some studio owned by an Evil Asshat corporation that has say over what we do and how we do it. We are fortunate enough to have control over how we work and we choose not to run ourselves into the ground.”
Super Meat Boy Forever was first announced in 2014 as a mobile-only project, before being rebooted as a console-led title in 2017. The game retains the tricky platforming of the original, but adds new dynamically constructed levels that change in difficultly according to the skill of the player.
When Meat Boy and Bandage Girl do return, you won’t be able to miss them. Super Meat Boy Forever will be released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows, and Linux.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
