Avengers will now release in 2021. The news comes from a blog post by Scot Amos, Crystal Dynamics' head of studio. If you already have the game and play it on the new machines, you will still experience faster load times and better framerates.
The release of new characters are also delayed. Kate Bishop, who will be the game's first DLC character. She was supposed to release this month, but now has an unknown release date.
Amos also addressed some of the launch issues. saying "Marvel’s Avengers’ launch was not without turbulence, and we recognize that a number of issues detracted from your enjoyment of the game. This does not align with Crystal Dynamics’ value of craftsmanship, and for that we sincerely apologize." In that apology, Crystal Dynamics is giving all players 1,500 credits, 7,000 units, 250 upgrade modules, 20 DNA keys, and a Sarah Garza-inspired nameplate from October 22 to November 5.
