It appears Marvel’s Avengers video game experiment is coming to an end. Developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix, Marvel’s Avengers was an ambitious attempt at launching Marvel’s biggest superhero brand in the digital marketplace. The game was first teased on YouTube in 2017, with several brief images of damaged Marvel iconography effectively tantalizing fans for years before an official reveal at E3 2019 finally detailed the plot. Set in a world where a tragic event disbanded the Avengers and put A.I.M. in power, the story follows Kamala Khan as she discovers her Inhuman powers and sets out to regroup Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Expansions have dropped consistently in the years since the game released in 2020, but according to a new report from industry insider Miller Ross, that will no longer be the case after 2023.
On behalf of eXputer, Ross has claimed that Marvel’s Avengers will “sunset” in the new year, with support for the game and new content slowly ceasing to exist as 2023 goes on. There are reportedly no plans for any further additions or DLC expansions in 2024. Servers would supposedly stay active after support ends, allowing players to continue accessing the massive multiplayer mode designed for the project and enjoying some play time for a long while to come. There are still several rumored characters that have yet to be added to the game, which could make for some entertaining final content in the next 365 days. Of course, none of this is officially confirmed by the developers, so take the information with a grain of salt. That being said, the original plan for the game was apparently a “3-5 year” lifespan, and a quiet death in 2023 would match this concept pretty well.
