The book was originally set to be released in April 2017, but was delayed to May 2017 as the book did not meet quality standards.[3] It was further delayed until June 2017 when the second printing did not meet the quality standards either and the publisher had to switch to a new printer.[1] Separate Standard Editions and a special Collector’s Edition will be available during the release.[4]
