Cuphead has released a surprise release for PlayStation 4. You can now play the Run-n-Gun action side scroller on this platform. Developer studio MDHR announced this today during an interview with Geoff Keighley as part of its Summer Game Fest series (part of what we call “Not E3” because people are developing replacement events for the great Summer Shindig).
When Cuphead launched in 2017, the retro cartoon-inspired game was exclusive to Xbox One and PC. Microsoft would later allow a switch port in 2019. It has become a huge success and sells over 6 million copies. Cuphead even gets its own cartoon series on Netflix.
While it was a surprise when Cuphead was released for Switch, a PS4 port is even more irregular. PlayStation 4 is the direct competitor of Microsoft̵
And since it’s so many years after Cuphead was first released, Microsoft doesn’t lose much. Cuphead has already done its job as a strong, exclusive company that Microsoft could promote at trade shows like E3. Now the game can make more money by coming out on other platforms.
However, don’t expect to see Halo on PlayStation soon.
