A few years ago, a follow-up to the bloody 2D platforming game Super Meat Boy was announced during a Nindie Summer Showcase. Super Meat Boy Forever aims to tell the tale of Meat Boy and Bandage Girl, and their plethora of bloodied escapades to save their baby from Dr. Fetus.
Team Meat announced they’d be releasing Super Meat Boy Forever in 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, but it’s been pushed back to April of this year. Unfortunately, the team has to announce that it’s been delayed again.
The developers released a statement to address the issue:
We’ve been knocking out the last bits of Super Meat Boy Forever at record speeds while keeping a healthy and sustainable pace. We are going to keep that pace which means we will not hit our April 2019 release. Sorry about that. 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 A!@#$%t 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.
Game delays blow, we know, but we’re close so it shouldn’t be too long of a delay. The next trailer we drop will have a concrete release date but until then we are officially launching “after but not too far after April 2019.”
