Marvel’s Avengers hasn’t had the smoothest of starts. While a best-selling game when it launched, the population has quickly spiked downwards due to numerous bugs and the lack of endgame content needed to keep the players hooked. Now, it has been announced that the Marvel’s Avengers next-gen versions will be delayed to 2021.
The developers have officially announced this through the Avengers website, stating that “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.”
Apart from the delay of the next-gen versions, the supposed-to-be first DLC Kate Bishop has also been delayed, saying that “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.”
No specific dates have been given for both delays, except for the vague 2021 window for the next-gen versions. We’re guessing that, based on the feedback, the game will be undergoing a big overhaul to some systems along with major endgame content to make the new versions an enticing offer.
As a thank you from the developers, each player will be given a small token of appreciation, which will be available until November 5:
- Credits: 1500 – Enough for a Legendary Skin and Nameplate from the Marketplace
- Units: 7000
- Upgrade Modules: 250
- DNA Keys: 20
- A Sarah Garza-Inspired Nameplate (Because seriously, you’re the best.)
