In 2017, Super Meat Boy Forever – a sequel to the brutal and bloody 2D platform game Super Meat Boy – was announced during a Nindie Summer Showcase. The game stars Meat Boy and Bandage Girl and tasks them with saving their baby from the evil Dr. Fetus.
Team Meat was originally aiming to release this title on multiple platforms including the Switch in 2018, but the game was then pushed back to April this year. In unfortunate news, it’s now been delayed again. Rather than work their butts off to meet this deadline, the team has decided to slightly postpone the release until after April. The next trailer the developer uploads will also include a “concrete” launch date.
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 [email protected]#$%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.”
