Mojang is launching Minecraft Dungeons next month instead of this month.
Originally slated for release last year, Mojang has revealed the new release date for Minecraft Dungeons. It was supposed to launch this month, but instead will be releasing on Nintendo Switch and other platforms on May 26. This was confirmed on the official Dungeons’ Twitter account.

This Minecraft spin-off takes a lot of inspiration from classic dungeon crawlers such as the Diablo series. In Dungeons, you will be able to team up with three other players to take down hordes of mobs. Throughout the game, you’ll power up your equipment and collect as much loot as possible.
Minecraft Dungeons was announced back in September 2018. More information was then shared at Microsoft’s E3 2019 Press Conference. Microsoft has been a huge supporter of cross-platform play for some time now.
Last year, they released both Cuphead and Ori and the Blind Forest on Nintendo Switch. There’s no doubt that we’ll continue to see more support from the big corporation and this Minecraft spin-off is the next glimpse of that.
Minecraft Dungeons launches on Switch May 26.
Will you be entering the dungeons next month?
