2021 Emojis Canceled By the Coronavirus Pandemic, Too

It’s not just tech events or music festivals getting canceled left and right, new emojis are out too because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Unicode Consortium, in charge of emoji releases, announced that it’s delaying all the new emojis we were about to get next year.

The company announced that the Unicode Standard version 14.0 was pushed back by six months.

“Under the current circumstances we’ve heard that our contributors have a lot on their plates at the moment and decided it was in the best interests of our volunteers and the organizations that depend on the standard to push out our release date,” said Mark Davis, the president of the organization, which relies on a lot of volunteers.

Fortunately, the new emoji batch announced in March is still on track to release this year.

The Unicode 13.0 will be available in the second half of 2020 and hopefully, the unlucky number doesn’t affect it.

Notably, this set from the video above brings an anatomically correct human heart and a set of lungs. There’s also a gravestone, a mousetrap, a magic wand, a pinata and a black cat.
