A new developer diary is coming for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and it could be foreshadowing the end. It will broadcast on August 28th at 5 AM PDT and is referred to as “The Final Stand.” No further details were provided except the tweet stating that the final stand was “imminent.”
The update will have a returning monster but what it could be is unknown. Many are speculating that it’s Fatalis, an Elder Dragon that breathes fire but can also release explosive dust. Most intriguing is that White Fatalis is considered the ancestor for all Elder Dragons, making the regular version that much more imposing (perhaps even more so than the recently introduced Alatreon).
It’s expected that this update will go live in the Fall along with Master Rank Layered Armor, the Seliana Fest and the Astera Fest. The timing of this developer diary seems to indicate that it could be sooner than later. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
