Marvel’s Avengers Now Delayed Till September
The Avengers will not be assembling just yet as it has been announced that the game will now come out a four months after its most recent projected release date, moving from May to September 4th. However, this isn’t the only Square Enix published game to be delayed, as the hotly anticipated Final Fantasy VII is getting the same treatment.
In a statement released by Square Enix, they said:
To our fans,
At Crystal Dynamics our ambition has always been to deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience. In order to achieve that goal, we have made the difficult decision to move the release date of Marvel’s Avengers to September 4, 2020.
As fans ourselves, it’s an honour 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 worldwide teams working on Marvel’s Avengers sincerely appreciate the support you’ve shown us. We thrive on your enthusiasm and feedback and we can’t wait to show you more. We apologise for the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait.
Marvel’s Avengers will still be available for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and will feature all the popular Marvel characters that gamers can expect to control. We played a build of Marvel’s Avengers at EGX last year and it was a lot of fun, you can read our preview here.
