Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter World Iceborne Update 4 has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Monster Hunter World Iceborne Update Pushed Back Due To COVID-19
The update was originally pencilled in for a May release, and features fresh weapons and armor based off the Blazing Black Dragon, as well as returning creature Alatreon. There’s no new date confirmed yet, but Capcom will share more info as soon as it is able to do so.
Here’s the official statement:
Unfortunately, coronavirus (COVID-19) related impacts on production have made it necessary to postpone the release of the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Voice over production for the Italian, Spanish and French language version have also been affected, and will be replaced with simplified recordings.
We would like to apologise to all of our fans eagerly awaiting Alatreon’s arrival in the New World, and will provide updates once we have new information to share. Thank you very much for your continued support and patience. From all the development team at Capcom – happy hunting and stay safe!
Monster Hunter World Iceborne is the first (and only) major expansion for Capcom’s critically acclaimed Monster Hunter World, which launched for the PS4 and Xbox One in January 2018. The game ranks as Capcom’s best-selling individual title to date.
