Minecraft Dungeons delayed until May

Microsoft and Mojang’s Minecraft spinoff, Minecraft Dungeons, was originally scheduled to come out at the end of April, but due the global pandemic ravaging the world at the moment, the game has been delayed.

According to a blog post on Minecraft’s website, Minecraft Dungeons, which is a standalone action-adventure dungeon crawler, will launch on May 26. Mojang’s Per Landin explained in order to keep the development safe, they had no other choice but to delay the game’s release.

“As you all know, we initially planned to release Minecraft Dungeons by the end of April,” Landin said. “However, due to the current state of the world, this was no longer possible, as we wanted to guarantee the health and safety of our teams and empower them to deliver the best possible experience to you, our players. We hope you’ll find it was worth the wait.”

The game will be available in two editions, Standard ($19.99) and Hero ($29.99), with the Hero Edition coming with a Hero pass that includes a Hero Cape, two player skins, a chicken pet, and two upcoming DLC packs.
