The comic books started a community, the movies made a nation-wide craze. But the game? You'll have to wait a bit longer. Marvel's Avengers, the action-adventure game being published by Square Enix, has been delayed until Fall of this year.

Scot Amos & Ron Rosenberg, heads of the game's developer Crystal Dynamics, recently announced the game's delay on the company website.
 

"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 Marvels Avengers to September 4, 2020.
. . .
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 game was originally showcased at E3 2019, where it was set to release in May 2020. At the event, we learned about the overall plot of the game. Captain America falls in battle. Society has started to reject the super heroes, no longer trusting them. But all the while, the now-broken team has to protect the city from those who look to harm it.

The game features an impressive voice cast, including Troy Baker, Laura Bailey, and Nolan North.

We definitely understand their decision to delay the game's release. There have been plenty of instances where a game was criticized upon release for being in an unfinished state, only to be improved upon with more time. No Man's Sky is a perfect example of this. September is also closer to the 2020 holiday season, which may prove beneficial to initial game sales.

Marvel's Avengers will release on September 4, 2020. 

Notice: The Crystal Dynamics website appears to have crashed since reporting this. You may experience difficulty visiting the site.
