If you’re like me, you are probably skeptical of the new Crystal Dynamics game, Marvel’s Avengers. After the less than stellar first impressions of the game when it was debuted at E3 last year, many people were waiting to see the end result on May 15. Well, it looks like we will have to wait a bit longer to be critical.
The game has been delayed until September 4, 2020 citing “additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards [Marvel] fans expect and deserve.” In a post announcing the news on its website, Crystal Dynamics promised that the added wait would be worth it for true believers of the Marvel universe, and teased that more of the game would be shown in the lead up to its new release date.
To be completely honest, game delays are the normal. It is rare that a game be delivered on its original release date. Anyone that has been a fan of Rockstar games knows that their original release date is simply a placeholder until the real release date is determined. While some people, including myself, were not all that impressed with the character designs, that will most likely not be improved upon when the game is release in September.
In related news, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is, also, being delayed. Original slated to be released on March 3rd, Square Enix announced that it would be delayed by a month. That isn’t bad considering significant portions of the game were leaked online ahead of its rumored demo.
It will be interesting to see what the final products look like when they are released on their respective release dates. It will be interesting to see if Marvel’s Avengers will look any better than it did in its reveal trailer. But, my expectations are low considering how amazing Marvel’s Spider-Man looked.
