MultiVersus entered open beta on July 26, a move that additionally doubled as a smooth launch for the game. Next up for the platform fighter is its first official season of recent content material, however these asking concerning the launch date of Season 1 won’t like the latest reply. That’s as a result of we don’t really know when it’s coming now.
The normal consensus was that MultiVersus Season 1 was supposed to begin in early August, bringing Rick and Morty of the Adult Swim show of the identical title into the fray. Unfortunately, Warner Bros is “delaying the start of Season 1 and the release of Morty to a later date.” The announcement was made on Twitter, where the MultiVersus crew admitted that “this might be disappointing for some.” Thus, it needs “to assure our community that we are dedicated to delivering new and exciting content that delights players. We’ll let you know the timing as soon as we can and look forward to unveiling Season 1 very soon!”
Perhaps paradoxically, this delay announcement quasi-confirms that Season 1 was certainly meant to start round this time. Unfortunately, it has no new launch date or window, so we don’t know when the content material will really drop. At the very least, there’s already some Rick and Morty stuff within the game: the Cromulons map, based mostly on the show’s “Get Schwifty” episode, is already dwell. It’s additionally value declaring that the tweet particularly says that “the release of Morty” has been pushed again. There’s no point out of Rick, which implies he may nonetheless be added to the game quickly, as one thing of a comfort prize for the Season 1 delay.
This isn’t the primary delay we’ve seen round MultiVersus. Gandalf and Harry Potter had been mentioned to be coming to the game in some unspecified time in the future, however a leaker claims they’ve been indefinitely delayed or canceled. At least there are many MultiVersus mods that add customized characters to the game.
