If you have been waiting on the next big update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, then you unfortunately will have to wait a bit longer. Just recently, Japan went into lockdown due to COVID-19, which is now having an impact on game development and updates across many developers, Capcom included.
In an update today, the Monster Hunter team confirmed that future content updates are going to be delayed and won't hit the initial dates on the roadmap:

“Impacts on production have made it necessary to postpone the release of the fourth free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne”, Capcom's statement reads. The post goes on to add that voice-over recordings and production for different language versions of the game have also impacted, so Italian, Spanish and French voice work will be replaced with “simplified recordings”.
Current on-going events in Monster Hunter World are being extended to make up for the gap between content drops. We should get more updates on the status of future content in a few weeks time.
