Minecraft Dungeons Release Date Delayed, But Not For Long

Minecraft Dungeons finally has a release date, though it's a bit later than first planned.

Minecraft Dungeons was originally planned for a vague April release date, but that's now changed a bit. Mojang just announced the dungeon-crawler spinoff of its acclaimed block builder will release a month later, on May 26.

It's a simultaneous launch for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One (including Game Pass), PlayStation 4, and PC. Minecraft Dungeons won't initially have full cross-play support, but the team plans on implementing it sometime in the future.

There's no word on why there was a delay for the game. Still, it's barely a month-long delay, so the cause likely wasn't anything too serious.


Dungeons is shaping up to be worthwhile. The development team released multiple dev diary videos highlighting various aspects of Minecraft Dungeons' gameplay over the past few months. We've seen all the care put into Minecraft Dungeons' sound design, along with the challenges of balancing levels to reward single-player and multiplayer styles.

You can pass some of the time leading up to May 26 by checking out the Minecraft Dungeons toy line Mattel and Minecraft are working on too.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
