"More details on The Avengers project and other games will be announced in 2018." :indeed:

The imagery of Mjolnir, Cap's shield and Iron Man's gauntlet all beaten up reminds me of Tony's "premonition" in Age of Ultron, where the Avengers are defeated... looks like this is going to tie-in very heavily, story-wise, with Infinity War/Infinity Gauntlet. Hopefully these are truly great games in their own right.

So Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider, Legacy of Kain) and Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex).......... so we could get a Marvel Game that is a cross between Tomb Raider with Deus Ex, with its own unique flair?

It’s hard to tell just from the trailer and the fact that there were way too many cuts happening between the action but I’m not sure I’m liking the look or feel of that game. Hoping it’s something that’ll just get ironed out. Everything looked like it felt just a bit too slow maybe?

The story seems promising and I like what I saw. Hopefully the gameplay will work with so many different characters. Looking forward to seeing more of it (though I probably won't be able to play it as I don't own a console for it).

The characters look weird since they aren't using the usual faces or voices, but I thought the same with Spider-Man PS4 and that turned out ok.

The gameplay looks a little.....confined? I realise it probably won't be open world, but to have flying characters and cage them into small areas, will make it feel very claustrophobic imo.

The action looked pretty generic, which I know is Marvel's thing, but I had hoped the gameplay might be a bit more interesting. Didn't look particualrly polished either. Oh well.

Well it isn't going to be released for another 11 months, why would they start polishing it now?

To our fans,

At Crystal Dynamics 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 Marvel’s Avengers to September 4, 2020.

As fans ourselves, it’s an honor and a privilege to work with these legendary characters and we know what these Super Heroes mean to us and True Believers around the world. When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come. To that end, 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 worldwide teams working on Marvel’s Avengers sincerely appreciate the support you’ve shown us. We thrive on your enthusiasm and feedback and we can’t wait to show you more. We apologize for the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait.

Scot Amos & Ron Rosenberg
Co-Heads of Studio, Crystal Dynamics

For those wanting to buy it they may as well wait for the inevitable PS5/Xbox Series X versions of the game.
