Previously Reworked Champions and a New Schedule
When Fiddlesticks and Volibear were decided, it was announced near the beginning of 2020. They subsequently came out two and five months later respectively. This is likely due to the fact that they are still working on brand new champions as well. With Riot saying that their plan is to come out with six champions a year, or one every two months, he will need to fit into this new schedule.
Riot revealed that he is still coming first. That means that the Dr. Mundo rework release date should be coming very soon. In this Developer Update, Riot confirmed that a reworked Dr. Mundo would be coming in 2021 but it is likely that the Dr Mundo rework will come out in March of 2021.
Likely, it seems that if they are already testing out new parts of his kit, he would probably be coming around a similar time as Fiddlesticks. If they do it similarly to their 2020 schedule then he could be out as soon as the first patch in February which is Patch 11.3 on February 3. Or they could surprise everyone and put him on the PBE even sooner to launch with Viego the Ruined King. Either way, those who are looking forward to a new Mundo will not be waiting much longer.
