Animal Crossing: New Horizons may have just launched a few days ago, but people are already looking forward to checking out seasonal events and more. Nintendo is working hard on that content, but they may have to shift release scheduling due to the coronavirus.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Nintendo has said that work continues on Animal Crossing: New Horizons post-launch content, but that could change if the coronavirus situation worsens. Director Aya Kyogoku had this to say.

“We’re not sure if we have to shift anything, but I think we have to be flexible."

That sentiment was echoed by producer Hisashi Nogami.

"In terms of the development team, I do have to think about their health and well-being as well.”
