It's fair to say MultiVersus has been a big success for WB Games and developer Player First Games. The free-to-play platform fighter is in open beta right now, but even so, its popularity is undeniable — and it helps that it's genuinely great fun. The game's first proper Season was due to start on 9th August, but the team has decided to push that back.
In a string of tweets, the MultiVersus account confirms that both the start of Season 1 and the release of Morty, the next playable character, will be delayed:
No new date is given for Season 1 or Morty, but it's assumed both will arrive at the same time. Player First Games does say it'll be unveiling Season 1 "very soon", so we should get more details in the near future.
Additionally, the duration of the existing Preseason Battle Pass has been extended; it was due to end on 8th August, but will now remain active until 15th August, so you now have more time to nab those last few rewards if you haven't already.
