In a message to fans, Square Enix announced that the release of Marvel's Avengers will be postponed for several months. The superhero adventure will now be released on September 4, 2020. With the extra time, the creators want to continue working on the intricacies of the game. After the remake of Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Marvel's Avengers is the third game from publisher Square Enix, the release of which is postponed this year.
Square Enix announced in a message to fans that Marvel's Avengers will not be released on May 15, 2020 as scheduled. Instead, the team would like the team from developer Crystal Dynamics to spend a little more time fine-tuning the title to meet the needs of fans from around the world. The new date was now September 4, 2020 – almost four months later.
Nothing has changed on the platforms for the time being. Marvel's Avengers will continue to appear on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. The next-gen consoles will also be commercially available towards the end of the year. A few months ago, the makers talked about the improvements they want to bring into the game with the added power of PlayStation 5.
The developers at Crystal Dynamics commented on the move:
"To our fans. Our ambition at Crystal Dynamics has always been to bring you the ultimate Avengers experience. To achieve this goal, we now had to make the difficult decision and postpone the release of Marvel's Avengers until September 4, 2020 It is an honor and privilege to work with these legendary characters and we know what the superheroes mean for us and all the true believers around the world (…) We want you to have a campaign with a new story, engaging co-op and bring exciting content for the next few years, and we'll use the extra development time to work on the subtleties of the game to meet the high standards that fans expect and deserve. (…) We apologize for the delay. We are convinced that the wait will be worth it. "
In addition to the release of Marvel's Avengers, Square Enix also has the Final Fantasy 7 remake release postponed, if only by almost a month.
