Developer and publisher Capcom's Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion released in September 2019 for consoles, with PC seeing its release a few months after in January 2020. Since then, the studio released several major updates, kicked off crossover events, and gave players tons of content to go through. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic directly affected numerous studios' development cycle. Capcom was certainly one of them, but not anymore. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is getting its fourth title update later next month.
Capcom revealed the news through the game's official Twitter account. The Japanese government relaxed the country's office restrictions. This will allow the studio's development team to resume their operations and continue working on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's fourth title update. It was originally scheduled to see the light in May, but the pushed release date is understandable. The update promises to bring the fan-favorite black dragon Alatreon. Not only that, but players will also be able to craft weapons and armor out of Alatreon materials once you loot it.

This is part of Capcom's roadmap for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. In addition to getting Alatreon added to the game's extensive roster of impressive monsters, the studio promised post-June to release "more synced updates and additional monsters." However, we have no confirmed word on what those would be till now. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne's fourth title update is now expected to arrive in early July, with no set release date yet. Once the studio confirms the release date, we will update our readers.
