One Punch Man Season 3 is taking longer than usual and fans are not happy with the delay. From the animation quality to the Original Video Animations (OVA), the second season of One Punch Man has been very controversial. But at least it was released on time and there is no update on the schedule for the third season of the anime.

The latest snag to hit the work for One Punch Man season 3 is the launch of a new fighting video game that will come out in 2020. The game titled One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows could be one of the main reasons to have a delay in the release of season 3.
One Punch Man Season 3: Effect of Video Game on 2020 Release
It is not like that the One Punch Man season 3 will come out of nowhere, the makers will have to first announce about the start of production and a timeframe of the release date. But the producers have been busy since the last month and continue that till the first quarter of 2020 in other projects related to the ‘One Punch Man’ franchise.
The physical home media copies will be released around March next year and the fighting video game One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows will be live on February 28, 2020. These are the main reasons why season 3 of One Punch Man is not announced and hopefully, it happens after all the events are over.
Will the Production Studio of ‘One Punch Man’ Season 3 Change?
One Punch Man season 3 is also suffering from another issue where the fans have signed a petition on change.org to replace the J.C. Staff animation studio and bring back the animators from the first season. Fans want Natsume to handle the animation of One Punch Man season 3, which he would gladly do but being a freelance director he doesn’t have any control over the matter.
It won’t be easy to incorporate all of the stuff but the makers have to listen to the fans. There are high chances that Viz Media listens to the fan demands and make the necessary changes, further delaying the release date of One Punch Man season 3.
