the company announced Monday.  Jumpstart, originally planned for July 3 (see “Wizards of the Coast Unveils ‘Magic: The Gathering – Jumpstart’”), will now be released two weeks later on July 17. 

The delays do not affect Magic: The Gathering Core Set 2021, which is still set for July 3, with Prereleases the weekend of June 26.

Jumpstart is the second Magic: The Gathering delay announced in the past few days; half of the Commander 2020 decks are also delayed (see “Half the ‘Commander’ Decks for ‘Ikoria’ Delayed Due to Coronavirus”).
