Following a brief delay, MultiVersus Season 1 now has an official release date. On Thursday, Warner Bros. Games announced on Twitter that Season 1 will debut on August 15, 2022 alongside the Season 1 Battle Pass and new in-game rewards. MultiVersus Season 1 was originally scheduled to launch on August 9.
MultiVersus players who were looking forward to playing as Morty from Rick and Morty will have to wait a bit longer, however. According to Thursday’s tweet, Morty will join the MultiVersus roster on August 23.
“We’re excited to announce Season 1 will begin on August 15 with a brand-new Battle Pass for you to earn in-game rewards!” reads the tweet. “We can also confirm Morty will join the character roster on August 23 as part of Season 1. We look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks!”
The developers clarified in a follow-up tweet that not all of the Season 1 content will be available day one. “Quick Note: Everything we are bringing to you in Season 1 will not drop on the same day,” the tweet states. “New modes and content will be spread through the life of the Season.”
