Marvel's Avengers, the ambitious new MMO from Square-Enix based on the famous band of superheroes has been delayed.
Square-Enix unveiled the game at E3 2019 and was originally pencilled to release 15 May 2020.
However, earlier today Scot Amos & Ron Rosenberg – Co-Heads of Studio at Crystal Dynamics – announced that the game was being pushed back and will now release September 4, 2020.
The new release now firmly puts the game in the window for all perspective PS5 and Xbox Series X buyers, so it'll certainly be interesting to see the games cross-gen capabilities when it does launch.
Here's the full statement from Amon and Rosenberg, as posted to the Marvel's Avengers website:
