Crystal Dynamics is clearly gearing up for a “sunset” of Marvel’s Avengers next year, according to a new report detailing the live-action action-RPG’s turbulent development.
According to a report by Exputer, Crystal Dynamics “has no plans for content in 2024” and will be looking forward to the sunset on Marvel’s Avengers in 2023, bringing an end to the game’s turbulent time in the sun. You can play the game via Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass now, though how long you’ll have to earn all 50 Marvel’s Avengers achievements is anyone’s guess. While it looks like the superhero-focused game will likely leave in the not-too-distant future, check out the games coming to Game Pass to see what’s on the service’s cards in 2023.
Sources claim that Crystal Dynamics has no Marvel’s Avengers content planned for 2024
The Exputer report details some of the events surrounding the difficulties of Marvel’s Avengers since its launch, which has received a great deal of criticism and has seen Crystal Dynamics strive to release patches to fix the game’s issues. The situation didn’t really improve post-launch either, with every content that more or less dropped its target release date missing — such as the recent addition of AIM Cloning Lab’s endgame mission, which was only delayed by two years, and the report claims it’s finished but deemed unsuitable for release as a result of networking issues. basic and constant errors.” Many of the problems are attributed to the Crystal Dynamics “Long-in-the-tooth” Foundation engine and lack of resources. Exputer says the engine has “accumulated huge technology debt after generations of boost,” which is likely why the studio decided to use Unreal Engine 5 for its upcoming Tomb Raider project.
Lack of resources available to developers, denied requests for additional team members, unrealistic deadlines, and unpaid overtime all lowered morale throughout the team, causing employee review scores to plummet and bonuses to be cancelled. The icing on the game’s cake, though, appears to come from lead designer Brian Wagner, who allegedly rose to the role after former Marvel’s Avengers leader Philip Therrien moved in to help out with Perfect Dark. Wagner recently had to apologize for several controversial tweets that occurred over a decade.
According to Exputer’s sources, Waggoner will leave Crystal Dynamics at the same time that Marvel’s Avengers leave Sunset in 2023. It appears that the studio has only planned to support it for three to five years, so it will likely still be within the original timeframe, if it At the low end of the scale. While it’s unlikely that simply ending content support would affect the achievement list too badly (unless a late patch spoils something else on that front), any sort of end of live services that might follow could wreak havoc, potentially That leads to a large part of the game unplayable and makes a lot of added content unavailable.
If you still need to finish the game, you’d better start thinking about unlocking your final achievements sooner rather than later with their sounds. Would you be sad to see Marvel’s Avengers end support? Leave a comment below and let us know!
