Recalling its presence at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 2017) last month, Cuphead is releasing later this year for Xbox One and PC. However, a lot of titles showcased by Microsoft were confirmed later on to be arriving for PlayStation 4 as well. Today, Studio MDHR clarified the intended platforms for its charming cooperative run-and-gun indie shooter.
Responding to a thread on NeoGAF, the developer set the record straight that Cuphead is exclusive to the Microsoft platforms. The only possibility of any other port is for either Mac or Linux, but that will be decided later on in the game’s life.
“Yes, this Cuphead game is exclusive to Xbox and PC (with Steam and Win10 versions at launch and a GoG release likely shortly after),” reads the response. “There will likely be a Mac version down the road and possibly a Linux version beyond that (unless we lose our houses or whatever).”
The developer also noted that Cuphead is owned by the studio and not Microsoft.
Cuphead is scheduled to release on September 29 for Xbox One and PC. Note that it will part of the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, meaning that players can purchase a digital copy on either platforms and access it on both.
