Capcom's Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne is one of the latest games whose schedule will be reshuffled due to pressing concerns in regards to the recent Coronavirus outbreak. In short, the expected 2 Variant Monster reveal has been pushed back.
This, of course, doesn't change the actual plans for release, just the timing, as Capcom's delay is actually Taipei Game Show's decision.
"Since Taipei Game Show has been postponed, our planned Feb. 6 reveal will be released at a later time. We are currently looking for the best opportunity to share the news with you. Stay tuned", the company tweeted.
If this was a normal release, like Monster Hunter: World or Iceborne were, we'd already have a few ideas on the date. However, the unpredictable nature of the Coronavirus outbreak means it's time to play the game of priorities.
In their defence, if they needed any that is, Capcom started 2020 with a series of exciting announcements for Monster Hunter: World players. The game's shows a ton of events and monsters on the horizon, as well as some internal Capcom crossovers.
Monster Hunter: World's Steam edition has been lagging behind console versions in just about every department, including things as basic as mouse movement.
You could argue that Capcom's PC team was a bit slow with updates as well, but overall - the company has been firing on all cylinders the entire 2019.
As you could've guessed, we're particularly interested in the syncing of PC and consoles for Monster Hunter: World - Iceborne content. And since we've been droning about it for a while now, meaning complaining incessantly, we suppose congrats are in order Capcom.
Here's to an even better 2020
