In news that should shock no one at this point, Capcom has announced that the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has been postponed! Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic gripping the world, the Monster hunter World Iceborne next update has been pushed back with no definite release window.
Yes, this means the arrival of Elder Dragon Alatreon has been pushed back, hunters!
This was announced by Capcom over on Twitter, where it also mentioned that voice over production has also been affected.

Unfortunately, coronavirus (COVID-19) related impacts on production have made it necessary to postpone the release of the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Voice over production for the Italian, Spanish and French language versions have also been affected, and will be replaced with simplified recordings.
We would like to apologize to all of our fans eagerly awaiting Alatreon’s arrival in the New World, and will provide updates once we have new information to share.
Thank you very much for your continued support and patience. From all the development team at Capcom – happy hunting and stay safe!
Given the time and situation we’re in, I doubt anyone would blame Capcom for this delay. That said, let’s hope we get an update on it soon as well.
