A big disappointment

We called Marvel’s Avengers one of the biggest disappointments of E3 2019 when it was first revealed, and it didn’t fare much better when it released the following year, earning mixed reviews from gamers and critics alike. It soon saw a major drop in the concurrent player count.

Crystal Dynamics kept releasing new content, including several new characters, but never regained momentum after its troubled launch.

Miller Ross, the person in charge of being in contact with the community, was the first to break the news that Marvel’s Avengers would shut down and that the team would move to Amazon Games’ Tomb Raider project. The report also claims that Crystal Dynamics fired lead designer Brian Wagoner after a series of tweets from 2014 were discovered in November, leading to to a public denial by the study.

Asked about the news, Crystal Dynamics has provided a link to the blog and has not made any further statements.

Your enthusiasm for Marvel’s Avengers—from your epic Photo Mode captures, to your threads theorizing who our next Heroes would be, to your Twitch streams—has played a huge part in bringing this game to life.”
