The production issues were mostly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which also affected the release of several Magic: The Gathering products last year, including Jumpstart and previous Secret Lair drops.

Wizards of the Coast previously said that more copies of the MTG Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition 2 are expected to get printed than the first Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition. Just like the first Ultimate Edition Secret Lair, Ultimate Edition 2 will come with a commemorative box that can be used for display. Due to issues presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, there's a chance that some boxes are black and others are dark gray, but says that there are no differences between the two other than the box color.

The Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition 2 drop will now officially be released on May 7.
