An upgraded version of The Stanley Parable, fittingly named The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, promised players more choices (or lack thereof, depending on how you want to look at it) and new endings, to be released in 2019. When the end of 2019 rolled around, developers Crows Crows Crows and Galactic Cafe released the delay announcement to end all delay announcements, moving The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe to "2020, to sometimes probably before summer, but it sort of depends on the specifics of how development goes".

Valve clarifies rule against using Steam to promote games on other storefronts

It recently came to light that an update to the Steamworks Community FAQ forbids developers from using Steam's Community Hub to promote non-Steam versions of their games.
