Marvel’s Avengers - Crystal Dynamics

Crystal Dynamics has pushed back the release of Marvel’s Avengers, citing the need to fine-tune and polish the game.

Originally due for release on May 15, Marvel’s Avengers, which is currently in development at Crystal Dynamics, has been bumped to September 4, 2020.

In a new post on the Crystal Dynamics blog, studio co-heads Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg say the delay is to allow for additional development:

“As fans ourselves, it’s an honor and a privilege to work with these legendary characters and we know what these Super Heroes mean to us and True Believers around the world. When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come. To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.”

The statement also thanks fans for their patience and support, promising that the end product will be worth the wait.

Based on the game’s recent public outings – at last year’s E3 and Gamescom – Marvel’s Avengers didn’t impress many who saw and played it, including us. The game’s curious character designs, which do but don’t pay homage to the MCU also drew ire from fans. Nonetheless, Crystal Dynamics has a strong track record and so any extra development time should indeed prove worthwhile. We’re also glad the studio is delaying the game, rather than launching an unfinished or unpolished game and attempting to patch it up post-launch.
