It wouldn’t be a new year if we didn’t see some games getting their release dates shifted around and that is exactly what has happened this morning. Publisher Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics have announced that Marvel’s Avengers has been delayed until September 4 worldwide.
The game was set to launch on May 15 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia but the team needs a bit more time to polish it up. You can read the co-heads of studio Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg’s message to fans below.
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 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 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 apologize for the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait.
