The first season of Multiversus, the platform fighter from Warner Bros, is getting pushed back to a later date. The news comes in a Tweet from the official MultiVersus account alongside the news that the addition of the character Morty of Rick and Morty has also been delayed.
We’ll let you know the timing as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience & enthusiasm and look forward to unveiling Season 1 very soon! (3/3)

The first Tweet in the thread thanks players for enjoying and playing the game before breaking the bad news about the delays. The thread ends with more appreciation for the fans and that the timing for the release will be revealed “as soon as [they] can.”
Earlier today MultiVersus director Tony Huynh outlined a few details on his own Twitter account about the now delayed Season 1 Battle Pass. The news follows last week’s confirmation that the game would not see progress reset for players now that the game is in open beta.
Despite being fairly new, MultiVersus has reached some huge numbers for concurrent players on Steam. Last week, it surpassed games like Warframe and Destiny 2 in that arena. It’s also seen a boom of players on consoles as well.
The game, which is free-to-play, has received a lot of great feedback from fans. We gave it an 8/10 in our review saying it is a “raucous and fun competitive platform fighter that rewards players for learning the strengths and weaknesses of its eclectic cast of characters.”
