Previously, Wizards of the Coast had delayed their Spring set, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, and associated products by roughly three weeks. This delay affected all regions that would receive Ikoria product except for Asia and the Pacific.
According to Wizards of the Coast's announcement yesterday, Zendikar Rising product in North America will be released in a set of two waves: one will arrive at stores on September 25th, as per schedule, while the other will arrive between a week and ten days afterward. Furthermore, Bundle products for Zendikar Rising will experience a delay as well, and "are unlikely to be available at launch."
As for Commander Legends, most of the product in that set will release on November 6th according to schedule, except for the following exceptions:
A product still from Jumpstart.
What about Jumpstart, though? This product has been experiencing delays for some time now. Unfortunately, Jumpstart will continue to be delayed, although Wizards of the Coast has offered updates where they can.
