Minecraft Dungeons release pushed back to May

Mojang has announced that Minecraft Dungeons will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 26th.

The game was originally scheduled to release in April, but this is no longer possible “due to the current state of the world,” according to the developer.

“As you all know, we initially planned to release Minecraft Dungeons by the end of April,” Mojang wrote. “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 includes support for local couch co-op and online co-op for up to four players, but will not include cross-platform multiplayer at launch. The plan is to introduce cross-platform multiplayer between all four platforms via a free update after the game launches.

Minecraft Dungeons will be available in two editions at launch: Standard Edition ($19.99) and Hero Edition ($29.99). The game’s Hero Edition includes two post-launch DLC packs and the Hero Pass, which grants access to a Hero Cape, two player skins, and a chicken pet.
