Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course DLC, which was originally scheduled to launch sometime in 2020, has been pushed to presumably next year. Studio MDHR announced the news on Twitter, providing a statement that cites the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic as the cause of the DLC’s delay. The developer said that it is not “content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work.”
The studio went on to state, “Meeting this standard has been extremely challenging for us amid the global pandemic that has affected so many of our fellow developers. Rather than compromise on our vision in response to COVID, we’ve made the difficult decision to push back the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident it will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel it should.”
MDHR provided no further scheduling plans except that the game should come “next year.”

Though a delay means you’ll have to wait a bit longer for more new Cuphead content, it doesn’t mean that MDHR hasn’t been busy making sure any and all have access to its stylized platformer in some fashion. In 2019, the developer brought the game over to Nintendo Switch, with a PlayStation 4 port following in July 2020.
