Minecraft Dungeons Delayed

The Minecraft Website announces a delay to Minecraft Dungeons, saying this is now launching on May 26th instead of by the end of April as previously planned. Word is that Microsoft and Mojang are now accepting preorders on a Standard Edition and a Hero Edition of the voxelated dungeon crawler:
We love a good announcement here at Mojang – no matter the type. Just this morning, my team announced that I needed to clean out my moldy old lunchboxes from the fridge. Can you imagine the excitement? The anticipation? The thrill? But we’re not here to talk about my trivial duties. We have much bigger things to share.

So sit down, take a deep breath, stand up, roll out the red carpet, pet your dog, and tell him he’s a good boy. Minecraft Dungeons is coming out May 26 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass.

As you all know, we initially planned to release Minecraft Dungeons by the end of April. 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:

  • Minecraft Dungeons – Standard Edition – $19.99 USD
  • Minecraft Dungeons – Hero Edition – $29.99 USD

The Hero Edition contains a Hero Pass that includes a Hero Cape, two player skins, and a chicken pet. Hero Edition also includes two upcoming DLC packs.
