MultiVersus Rated By The ESRB, Implying Open Beta Is Nearly Ready For Launch
MultiVersus has finished its classification in several different countries, implying that its open beta will be released soon.
Just a few months ago it was confirmed that MultiVersus will see its open beta release in July, which was then followed up with the reveal that all progress will be kept from the beta and that it'll essentially act as a soft launch for the game. MultiVersus' director Tony Huynh has confirmed that the open beta is waiting on classification and QA processes to finish before any kind of date can be decided and announced, which looks like it'll be happening very soon.
As spotted by Twitter user Mvsleaks, MultiVersus' ESRB rating has popped up on the PlayStation, Steam, and Xbox store pages for the game. Not only that, but it can also be seen on the game's official website across various different countries and languages. This indicates that the certification process is being finalised.
Considering what Tony Huynh said about the team waiting on QA and classification to finish before they can announce a start date for the open beta, it seems like we'll be getting news about it very soon, especially when you consider that some players are going to be getting early access to the beta, meaning that it needs to be announced a bit ahead of time to still fit into the promised July date.
If you want more evidence that MultiVersus is close to launching, Tony Huynh also Tweeted "Writing patch notes…" just a few hours after the ESRB rating was revealed, clearly hinting that the game is getting ready for its big open beta debut.
Interestingly, MultiVersus has been given a "T for Teen" rating thanks to its violence and language. Although a few characters in the roster swear, it was rumoured that Rick Sanchez would swear just as much as he did in the show, but with an optional swear filter placed over the top. It's not clear if the ESRB rating supports this rumour, but it's interesting to note that language has played a role.
