  3. Just to confirm the date is now 2024 for opening.

    However, Orange County mayor Jerry Demings recently stated that he had been in contact with "senior officials" at Universal, and that now Epic Universe would be delayed by a year, meaning the park will now open sometime in 2024.

    There is no specific date change for opening as yet but it's been announced that construction has been delayed by at least 1 year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

    “We remain very confident that the parks business will generate healthy returns over the long term,” said Brian Roberts, chairman and CEO of Universal’s parent company, Comcast, on its first quarter earnings call Thursday. “Nonetheless, we’ve decided to pause construction of Orlando’s fourth gate, Epic Universe, at this early stage.”
    The project was confirmed last year and scheduled for a 2023 opening. While Roberts didn’t mention a specific delay, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings said construction on Epic Universe “is going to be delayed by a year,” though it’s not clear if that means the opening date will need to be pushed back.

    Email to employees of Universal contains info on construction projects, all still being worked on.

    Our construction projects around the globe – Super Nintendo World in Osaka and Hollywood, Universal’s Epic Universe in Orlando and Universal Beijing all remain active and on track under protocols established by government officials and with their support.
