If you’ve been enjoying MultiVersus of late, you probably were excited for the kickoff of Season 1 complete with a full battle pass and the addition of Morty (from Rick & Morty, naturally) as a playable character on August 8th. That still appears to be the plan, but the developers announced yesterday that the Season 1 start date has been postponed from its planned date to an as-yet-undeclared point in the future. That means a longer delay on the battle pass, Morty, subsequent character Rick, and so on.
No reason is stated for the delay, although game director Tony Huynh has stated in another tweet that the game is unaffected by the recent raft of changes in movie production that have hit Warner Bros. The delay announcement was also followed by a statement that a new date would be revealed very soon, which tends to suggest a late-stage bug being found and requiring work to correct. Whatever the case, you’ll have to wait a little longer to enjoy the first full season.
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)
