Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's next next update has been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. The update is set to unleash Alatreon, a huge elder dragon, and it was meant to launch in May. But now, it's been pushed back to an undisclosed date.
The development team writes: "Unfortunately, coronavirus related impacts on production have made it necessary to postpone the release of the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne [...] Thank you very much for your continued support and patience. From all the development team at Capcom, happy hunting and stay safe!"
Iceborne's third title update is still going ahead on the 1st May. It adds Arch-Tempered Namielle along with a slew of event quests. Meanwhile, the game's Full Bloom Fest is happening right now, and it's due to end on the 7th May.
