Minecraft Dungeons Might Be Delayed Due To Coronavirus Concerns
Developer Mojang says work from home orders might push back the game's scheduled release in April.
If you're eagerly anticipating the release of Minecraft Dungeons, steel yourself for some bad news. The game's Twitter account recently announced that they may miss their planned release date of April 2020 due to the team behind the game working from home because of coronavirus concerns.
"As we’re working from home to do our part in protecting our community, our workflows will unfortunately be impacted," the tweet reads. "We’re working hard to deliver Minecraft Dungeons in April, but we’re also re-evaluating our timeline to make sure we bring you the best game possible. Stay tuned!"
Minecraft Dungeons is the latest of the many spin-offs of the epoch-defining survival/building franchise. Dungeons is set to be a co-op dungeon crawler inspired by classics of the genre, such as Diablo. The game previously had an open beta late last year, with gameplay footage emerging a few months later. It features an isometric perspective and twitch-based combat.
