Those who follow the industry news closely know this only too well: for two years now, postponements have multiplied like hot cakes. After more than three years of development, The Stanley Parable Deluxe finally clarifies the contours of its big comeback.
A few days before the 2021 edition of the Game Awards, the calendar reminds us that the overhaul of the intestable The Stanley Parable was announced during the 2018 vintage, and then promised for 2019. Three rounds of the calendar later, the Crows studio Crows Crows finally takes the floor to reveal a “new” release date, without getting too wet.
“It’s not the same game anymore”
After having been postponed more than once, The Stanley Parable Deluxe should therefore see the light of day in early 2022. History to offer some tokens of his good faith, the developers now offer to add the game to his wishlist on Steam. Better still, they justify the significant development time of what is probably nothing more than a simple port:
We will soon be revealing The Stanley Parable Deluxe launch platforms, its specific release date, new footage, trailers, teasers, screenshots and more. We haven’t revealed anything about the game in order to keep all the surprises and secrets that await you intact, and we can’t wait for you to discover them! Our team and external collaborators have put a lot of effort into the development of The Stanley Parable Deluxe and we are all very proud of what we have achieved.
This should therefore delight all player profiles, since even those who have challenged again and again a curious narrator in the sad corridors of an ordinary office should be able to be surprised by the proposal of Crows Crows Crows.
If the studio seems to want to keep a certain mystery on the platforms to come, The Stanley Parable Deluxe was in the last news expected on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.
