You’ll have to wait a couple extra months to finally play as the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Alongside announcing a delay for Final Fantasy VII Remake this morning, Square Enix also revealed that it is also delaying one of its other upcoming major 2020 releases.
Rather than releasing in May as was originally intended, Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics announced this morning that Marvel’s Avengers has now been pushed back. The game is now planned to launch later in the summer and will arrive on September 4, 2020. Crystal Dynamics in a statement said that this delay will help make Marvel’s Avengers “the ultimate Avengers gaming experience.” They also went on to apologize for the delay adding, “We’re confident that it will be worth the wait.”

Compared to Final Fantasy VII, Square Enix has been a bit quieter with Marvel’s Avengers over the past few months. In fact, we haven’t seen anything major on the title since back in October when it was revealed that Kamala Khan will be a playable character in Avengers. Since then, Square has been oddly silent about the project for one reason or another. Now, that silence seems to make a bit more sense considering the game has now been pushed back around three months.
With convention season quickly approaching, we should start to see a whole lot more of Marvel’s Avengers in action, if I had to guess. PAX East, E3, and any other events in between are likely good bets on when more footage and information regarding Avengers should start coming about. If we’re lucky, perhaps more playable characters in the game will soon be revealed, too.
Marvel’s Avengers is set to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia when it arrives in September.
