You know the game with the terrible frame-rate, fugly females, and characters that looked like cosplayers pretending to be cheap MCU knock-offs? Well, that game, best known as Marvel’s Avengers has faced a delay in that it will no longer launch on May 15th but on September 4th, 2020.
I’m not sure what is so appealing about the linear game with a dose of wokeness, but those looking forward to Marvel’s Avengers will find that it’s no longer coming out in the next five or so months, but in early Q3 2020.
I doubt the devs will use the extra time to redo the ugly characters while fixing the game’s performance, such as the terrible frame rate shown during any reveal trailer, but I digress.
As of today, Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg (co-heads of Crystal Dynamics) took to the studio’s official website to inform gamers and fans alike what to expect regarding the superhero game in the foreseeable future:
“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.
Scot Amos & Ron Rosenberg
Co-Heads of Studio, Crystal Dynamics.”
September of last year, the devs responded to the mass criticism regarding characters and their faces and attempted to “change them” by hiding Black Widow’s man-jaw using shadows and enhanced textures. The devs tried the same thing with Thor, but both characters still look like cheap knock-off heroes.
Seeing that the devs aren’t in it to make the female characters look sexy or the male characters look like someone you’d want to assume, I wonder if the devs will use the extra time to double down on microtransactions and purchasable custom outfits?
