Crystal Dynamics has announced that Marvel’s Avengers has been delayed.
The developer made the announcement today that the game’s release date has been pushed back to September 4, 2020.
“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,” reads the announcement.
“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.”
It seems the reason for this delay is nothing more than to ensure that Marvel’s Avengers is the best game it can be when it’s released. It was previously slated to come out on May 15, 2020 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.

“We apologize for the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait,” reads the end of the announcement.
Fans still looking to get a taste of Crystal Dynamics’ take on the Avengers can still, presumably, look forward to the prequel novel due to come out in March 2020.
