The first season of MultiVersus and its accompanying DLC character have been delayed.
Warner Bros. announced the delay of the debut season of MultiVersus on August 4. At this time, there hasn’t been a revised date for the release of Season One in MultiVersus, but as a tweet in the thread below says, the developer will reveal the new season “very soon.”
We want everyone to know that we are delaying the start of Season 1 and the release of Morty to a later date. We know this may be disappointing to some and we want to assure our community that we are dedicated to delivering new and exciting content that players will love. (23)August 4, 2022
In addition to this, the DLC character that accompanies MultiVersus Season One has also been delayed. It was actually going to be Morty from AdultSwim’s Rick and Morty, as the younger of the dynamic duo was ready to enter the arena alone without his older counterpart. While not explicitly stated, Morty is still expected to launch alongside the delayed first season whenever it arrives.
However, this means that the ongoing preseason will remain in the fighting game. The current preseason Battle Pass has been around since the game first entered open beta last month in July, and it turns out that the Battle Pass will still be available to players until August 15, rather than a week before, on August 8.
Due to the delay of Season 1, we will be extending the Pre-Season Battle Pass until August 15. The end date listed in-game will not change, but the Battle Pass will continue after August 8-15.August 4, 2022
MultiVersus developer WB has been very forthcoming with changes and tweaks to the game since its release. Whether it’s incoming buffs for characters like Wonder Woman or changes to highly criticized abilities like Taz’s merciless Tornado attack, the development team has always been communicating changes with the community well in advance.
