Super Meat Boy Forever has been delayed
According to a Tweet from Team Meat, the new version of their breakout platformer has had to be delayed while the last touches of polish are put on.
The game was actually slated to be an entirely mobile version of Super Meat Boy, the big smash-hit platformer from the indie developer. Super Meat Boy Forever was debuted at PAX 2014, and quietly worked on behind the scenes. Some fans started to lose hope as the game had not dropped by 2017, although hope for the title was renewed that same year when a port of the title was announced for the Nintendo Switch. Team Meat began working on the game in earnest at that time, and has been doing so ever since.
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 are not going to 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 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.

Team Meat has been at PAX East this last little bit, and though fans were likely a little disappointed about the news, the developer says, “everyone we told was super cool about it,” which is a good sign. Let’s just hope that all this wait was worth it and that the final game really blows us away. Or chops us into chunks, as the saws and other devious traps the platformer is sure to feature will love to do.
Super Meat Boy Forever is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, Linux. We also included one of the trailers for the new title, if you want to check it out, down below.
