Multiversus Season 1 has just been postponed (opens in new tab) indefinitely, and it couldn’t come at the worst possible time. In the past few days, Discovery — which acquired publisher Warner Bros. in April this year — has retired an entire library of TV shows and movies.
The news has understandably caused some fans to panic about the future of the game. Season 1 was supposed to start on August 9th, which meant the delay was more of a last-minute thing. There were concerns across the game’s two subreddits that this was a sign that Discovery was backing the brawler just weeks after its release.
Thankfully, game director Tony Huynh tried to address those concerns. After announcing the delay, he tweeted to confirm it was unrelated to the current exodus: “For those wondering, we are unaffected by the Discovery-Warner Bros. merger.”

It’s a relief to know it’s more of a coincidence than a bad omen. After all, Multiversus is a surprisingly good smashlike. Despite the various kinks that still need to be ironed out, it has already proven to be a huge hit. The number of players (opens in new tab) is in the millions and fans smashed through a three million ringout community challenge in just a few hours. It would be a shame to see the game disappear so quickly – how else am I going to beat the shit out of Shaggy as the well-known pacifist robot Iron Giant?
