Spelunky 2 from Mossmouth delayed to 2020

Spelunky 2, the sequel to 2008’s indie pioneer, is being delayed to after 2019.

Developer Mossmouth and Spelunky 2 designer Derek Yu announced the news on Twitter, citing a desire to meet the game’s demanding “density and detail.” Thankfully, Yu makes it clear that Mossmouth is “not far off target,” so it’s reasonable to think the game will release sooner rather than later, likely next year.

As a one-two news punch, Yu also confirmed that the team has been listening to fan feedback and has changed up the visuals to make some details pop a little more than before.

For now, it sounds like the team is going to bury their heads to get Spelunky 2 out in top form.

Spelunky 2 was announced back in 2017 with a reveal trailer about the daughter of the first game’s protagonist.

To catch up newcomers on what Spelunky is, the first game is a roguelike platformer that was praised for its deep exploration and progression qualities. Players could go on their cave-dwelling adventures alone or with up to four players for cooperative play.

When the game was announced, it was only revealed for PlayStation 4 and Steam, but keep checking in for any platform and release date updates. Let us know how you’re feeling about the delay.
