The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is a remake and pseudo-sequel to the original The Stanley Parable developed by Galactic Cafe and Crows Crows Crows, set to release in 2021 and feature new content, endings, choices and more. It will also include the original game for free.
Ultra Deluxe was originally announced on 6 December 2018, with the original trailer setting it to release in 2019. On 27 November 2019, the release was delayed to 2020. On 18 August 2020, it was again delayed to 2021. In reference to the multiple delays, the Stanley Parable website was changed to say the game was "coming out
2019 2020 2021".
The trailer shows the Narrator reminding the audience about the original The Stanley Parable, claiming the game won numerous awards (However, the clips shown only have awards for The Last of Us and Papers, Please!) and revealing the developers put its code away where it can be safe against the greedy hand of capitalism. However, he is told offscreen that they never put the game on consoles, and decides to do something about it.
Meanwhile, Stanley is on his computer, trying to book a holiday flight. Upon hearing the Narrator's voice, he attempts to leave, but the Narrator closes the exit on his face and shows Stanley his new ideas for the console ports of the game, revealing he will put new choices and endings. When Stanley disagrees, he is put back on his office where the Narrator starts filling it with cash and saying everyone will buy the game again because they're "suckers". As Stanley drowns in the sea of cash, the Narrator states that he needs a third swimming pool.
As the trailer ends, the Narrator discovers to his anger that The Last of Us 2 will also come out next year.
