On a recent Twitter announcement made on the official Monster Hunter Twitter account, because of the production delays of COVID-19 impacting, pretty much, the whole world, Capcom has decided to delay the release of the next Monster Hunter World: Iceborne patch.
This means that those hunters waiting for Alatreon's arrival will have to wait a bit longer.
