Updated: 11/13/2018 by Computer Hope

A showstopper is an unforeseen issue that prevents a product from being released on time. For example, a company may plan on releasing an update, then discover that a new aspect of the project would be detrimental to users, causing the developers to delay or cancel the update. Such an event would be called a "showstopper."
