Wizards of the Coast is planning to release the next Magic: The Gathering set, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, next month, but the company announced on Monday that all in-store MTG events within North America, Europe, and Latin America have been suspended at least until May 10 due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak, and the launch of Ikoria may be postponed.
"This includes all Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths events, except for At-Home Prerelease," Wizards said. "Existing events scheduled in those regions will be cancelled, and event scheduling has been removed from Wizards Event Reporter."
Wizards asked Wizards Play Network stores to follow local government and health guidelines regarding gatherings amidist concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic. The company is also giving store owners permission to sell prerelease sets and Ikoria Commander products to players who didn't want to participate in MTG events. As of Tuesday, March 24, all in store events within NA, EU, and LATM have been suspended.
Wizards said that they might also reschedule the official release of Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths.
