MultiVersus Season 1 has been postponed indefinitely, according to a tweet from the game’s developer.
It was initially planned that the first season of the free-to-play game would start on August 9. The delay also affects the release of Rick and Morty’s playable character Morty, who was supposed to come out on August 9, the same day Season 1 was supposed to start. Rick was also supposed to join the game at some point in the first season.
In a way that might be funny, this delay announcement kind of confirms that Season 1 was meant to start around this time. We don’t know when the new content will drop because it doesn’t have a new release date or window. At the very least, there is already something from Rick and Morty in the game. The “Get Schwifty”- inspired Cromulons map is already live. Also, it’s important to note that the tweet says “the release of Morty” has been delayed. Since Rick isn’t mentioned, he could still be added to the game soon as a sort of make-up for the Season 1 delay.
We want to let everyone know that we are delaying the start of Season 1 & the release of Morty to a later date. We know this might be disappointing for some and want to assure our Community that we are dedicated to delivering new and exciting content that delights players. (2/3)
