In 2011, developers Davey Wreden and William Pugh created a ‘mod’ for Half-Life 2 which immediately caught the attention of thousands of players. It was an experimental adventure that meditated on the illusion of choice in video games and the relationship between developer and player. A couple of years later it was released as a full game on PC called The Stanley Parable and now, after almost a decade, the extended version Ultra Deluxe

According an interview with IGN, the team always planned to make a console version of the game with a few changes. The problem is that they just kept adding things. It seems that even those who already know everything that the original version offered are going to find many surprises.
Now, The Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe finally has an official release date and it is very close: it will arrive on Steam and the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X | S and Nintendo Switch consoles on Wednesday, April 27, 2022.
