MultiVersus Season 1 and Rick and Morty see an indefinite delay

The first season of MultiVersus has been postponed to an as yet unconfirmed date, along with the game’s next character, Morty.

The first season of Warner Bros. IP-packed platformer. inspired by Super Smash Bros. was supposed to debut next Tuesday, August 9, and was supposed to introduce Rick and Morty’s Morty to the roster. Rick was almost supposed to join for a while in the first season, but obviously he’ll be delayed as well.

Following a tweet thanking fans for enjoying the MultiVersus Open Beta, the official account wrote “We want to let everyone know that we are delaying the start of Season 1 and 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 committed to delivering new and exciting content that will delight players.”

In another tweet associated with the announcement, the account said it would let fans know when as soon as possible, and noted that it appreciated everyone’s patience.

The game’s open beta officially began on July 26, starting with 17 characters including Superman, Shaggy, The Iron Giant, Bugs Bunny, and more (which GameSpot has categorized for you here). Basketball player and real human being LeBron James has also joined the roster as part of the open beta launch.

In GameSpot’s MultiVersus review, we gave the game an 8/10: “The team-based mechanics are truly beyond anything offered in a platform fighter, while the format Classic 1v1 also impresses. The roster offers great variety, while unlocking all of the characters without having to dip into the real-world wallet will definitely be a chore.”

MultiVersus is currently available in open beta on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC, with cross-play and cross-progression working on all platforms.
