Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion Title Update 4 delayed

No longer due out in May.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

Capcom has delayed Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Title Update 4 from its previously planned May release to an unannounced date.

Here is a message from the development team about the development of future Title Updates:

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 versions have also been affected, and will be replaced with simplified recordings.

We would like to apologize to all of our fans eagery awaiting Alatreon’s arrival in the New World, and will provide updates once we have new information to share.
