MCOC Road Map Update – November 2020

Summoners!

Kabam has just posted an update to the Road Map. While much of it is a review of items that have already been added to the game, there are many important updates. Here’s a quick look at what’s in development.

Book 2 Chapter 1 – Confirmed release on December 9

Summer of Pain – Delayed, potential Spring 2021 Release

Variant 6 – More info coming soon

Note that Variant 6 is expected to be the Luke Cage/Jessica Jones/Netflix Daredevil Event Quest, and that Netflix Daredevil has been confirmed as the December champion buff.
