Marvel’s Avengers release date delayed to September 2020

In addition to today’s bad news about the FF7 Remake, the Marvel’s Avengers release date has also been delayed. This launch delay for Marvel’s Avengers is a lot more severe, though — it’s being pushed back several months, all the way until September 2020.

A tweet from the game’s official account linked an announcement, but the website was badly overloaded at the time of writing. Thankfully, this submission from /u/newcontortionist on the /r/gamernews subreddit managed to copy/paste the entirety of the message from the devs:

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.
