Crows Crows Crows have announced a delay in the release date for narrative adventure game The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe.
Developed in joint with the game’s original developers Galactic Cafe, the game promises to expand upon the mind-bending and surreal first-person narrative adventure of The Stanley Parable. While players control the titular Stanley, whether they obey or disobey the narrator can radically change the world around them.
The game was already delayed from 2019 to 2020, now delayed to 2021. The exact reason for the delay was not stated however, as the announcement posts used other game’s delay announcement images, and crudely edited the appropriate names in place [1, 2, 3].
It is hardly speculation to consider that the delay may have been caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and the subsequent quarantine orders forcing many to work from home. As parodied by Crows Crows Crows, the announcement of delays due to this is hardly abnormal.
You can find the full rundown (via the official website) below.
When The Stanley Parable came out, a lot of people asked us for more endings and more content.
We told them it didn’t need more content, that it was fine just the way it was, that it already had the perfect number of endings.
What a sorry sack of lies that was.
We knew it. We knew it were lying and we did it anyway. We’ve carried that shame around with us for years, a burden weighing on every moment of every day.
Enough is enough.
It’s time to fix this, to unburden our shame. Let us give you our shame, for you to carry it around instead. We’re sick of it.
From the liars who brought you the award winning indie game The Stanley Parable comes The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, an expansion to the original game with more content, more endings, more whimsical adventures of the two best friends Stanley and The Narrator. Coming to PC and consoles in
2019 2020 2021.
Tastefully seasoned with the bitter remorse of having deceived so many loyal fans for so long.
But seriously, this time it’s done. No more.
The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe launches 2021 for Windows PC and unannounced consoles.
