Marvel’s Avengers: State of the Game Update

SE writes: "Moving forward, we intend to have a fixed, predictable patching cycle to ensure all new content meets both our and your high standards and has time for extensive internal testing. We know fans are hungry for new content, but delivering a fun experience is our priority. With this in mind, we’ve decided to push Kate Bishop’s Operation launch back a bit, out of October. We’re sorry for this slight delay, but we are dedicated as a team to quality first.

We’ve also made the decision to shift our PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S launch to next year to ensure that we give our team the time to deliver a next-gen experience showcasing all that this game is meant to be. More details to come."

And the hits just keep coming...

I think it's being pushed because they are working to update the game itself as it is to get more people back to playing. It's seen a huge drop-off in activity since a month after release. I haven't even touched it after I got my first character to 50.

Edit: This could also mean that the development team has been cut drastically to work on a new IP rather than work on ongoing updates/content for this game.

Didn't Eidos Montreal aided Crystal Dynamics in this project?
Maybe Eidos Montreal pulled out, post-release and got busy with something else? Deus Ex? 😎

The public perception and the news that affects such continually paints a less than rosy picture. There hasn't really been a bright star since the game launched. As I mentioned in a recent post the player count is on life support. I have little doubt that matters are as you mentioned in your edit. Eidos and SE are now looking to simply cut their losses and bow out as gracefully as possible considering the circumstances, while moving developers on to another substandard Tomb Raider. I am not sure how people failed to see this coming as pre-launch impressions of the title never hit the over all standard that would indicate a title with great appeal and sustainability. Any positive news always gave me the impression of being manufactured. It isn't that the game contained no enjoyable moments but rather like Roy Batty, it wasn't built to last. In addition there was the elephant in the room that smelled like social appeasement. I highly doubt they can afford, not in the monetary sense directly, to focus on truly fixing the title as a smaller company such as Hello Games did with No Man's Sky.

Damn, that is not a good look for them at all. At least the campaign was fun.

Believe this shows that Crystal Dynamics is not equipped to handle a game of this caliber. Tomb Raider is the scope that they should stick to

Get excited about new content in a mediocre Marvel game. Enjoy getting more stupid gear and looking at faces that are tired.


I'm shocked anyone fell for this game... It had an open beta for all to try and it showed just how craptastic that it was.

This game has two things going for it... Greed and laziness. Neither will make the game better.

You know what, I am not mad at this. I was blinded by the fun I had playing as the Hulk, Cap and Black Widow, but as a whole this game was greedy for no reason.

Are there games that DO have a reason to be greedy?
