Two Square Enix titles have been delayed, earlier today Square revealed that the Final Fantasy VII Remake would be pushed back five weeks from March 3rd to April 10th and now Marvel’s Avengers from its original release date of May 15th to September 4th.
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.

Marvel’s Avengers was first revealed back at last year’s E3 and while it has had mixed reactions over the character designs, the gameplay itself looks pretty sold.
