Roguelike platformer Spelunky 2 is behind schedule, and is now delayed beyond 2019, confirmed the game’s developer Derek Yu on Twitter. ”Hey, Spelunky fans! Unfortunately, I don’t think we’re going to get to release Spelunky 2 this year,” Yu tweeted. “Development is still going well and we’re not far off target, but the density and detail of the game is demanding more time. Thank you for your patience.”
No release date was given, but Spelunky 2 is not coming out this year. But, that’s okay — when developers push back projects to enhance the overall quality of a game and avoid toxic crunch periods that would ultimately hurt the creators, we should be happy with that kind of transparency.
As soon as we have a release date for Spelunky 2, we’ll make sure everyone knows,” Yu followed up. “We can’t wait to show you more, although of course the best way is for you to experience it for yourself at launch. All the crazy stuff we’re adding makes me buzz with excitement.”
When Spelunky 2 is complete, it will (hopefully) release on PlayStation 4 and PC.
