Not such a long wait after all.

It’s official – MultiVersus Season 1 will launch on August 15, 2022.

A statement via Twitter confirmed the new release date for the Warner Bros. online platform fighter, along with details of a new Battle Pass.

“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!” the statement reveals. “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!”

Obviously, the other big news here is that Morty (of Rick & Morty fame) will finally make his way into the game as a playable character on August 23. That’s great news for fans of the show.

But Warner Bros. Games also revealed some further info about Season 1, and it looks as though it won’t just be a single content drop when the game launches. Instead, they’ll be bringing new game modes, etc throughout the first Battle Pass.

“Quick Note: Everything we are bringing to you in Season 1 will not drop on the same day,” they revealed. “New modes and content will be spread through the life of the Season. We'll continue to share dates on all the fun things to come!”

Now only a few days away, Season 1 can’t come quick enough, and it's bound to be a huge relief after the game’s launch was recently delayed.

Although some fans speculated that this could be to do with the Warner Bros. Discovery merger, game director Tony Hyunh was quick to put things straight.

“For those wondering, we are unaffected by the Discovery/Warner Bros. merger,” he said.

And with a player base soon surpassing 10 million players, it looks as though most fans weren’t put off.
