The extended release of The Stanley Parable has been delayed for the third time, this time to early 2022. Originally, the game was supposed to be released in 2019. One developer says that the project has grown over time, so it took longer to develop.
The makers of the game say that the game’s content is now ready and the game is being prepared for release on PC and consoles. Co-developer Davey Wreden says on twitter A specific release date can’t be set yet, because the game is more than that play test To make sure there are no bugs or other issues with the game.
In addition, console versions have yet to be approved and an appropriate release period has yet to be chosen. For example, early next year, especially in February, many more games will be released. Wreden says he doesn’t want The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe to get snow under these other games.
The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe was announced in 2018 for a 2019 release and has been pushed forward every year since. The game will be an extended version of The Stanley Parable, with new endings and new options. Game features include visual upgrades, localized in-game lyrics, color blindness options, and “content alerts”. Kevan Brighting, narrator in the original, returns for the extended version and has recorded additional lyrics.
Wreden says the expansion script is longer than the original and that the Ultra Deluxe Edition will be a “surprise” for players of the original as well. The Stanley Parable is a satirical game about office worker Stanley that is full of unexpected twists and turns. Originally, the game appeared as Half-Life 2 mod. A standalone version was released in 2013. It is not clear on which consoles the Ultra Deluxe Edition will appear and how much it will cost. Both the extended and original versions remain for sale.
