A little over two and a half years have passed since the premiere of Marvel’s Avengers, and hope is the concept that is closest to being synonymous with the production at this point. The following months were marked by hopes that the situation would finally change, and the developers’ assurances that they are still working hard on improving certain aspects will have an impact on the project. Prior to the premiere, we hoped that the game would turn out to be better than the trailers showed; then, we believed that the multiplayer mode would be developed; and finally, we hoped that the situation would change so that the multiplayer mode would be developed.
This has not occurred up to this point (although not everything was terrible – we got some wonderful DLCs), and there are many indicators that not much will change in regard to this topic. As it turns out, the rumors turned out to be accurate, and Square Enix has made the official announcement that it would no longer sponsor Marvel’s Avengers. The most recent significant upgrade will be released at the end of March, to be followed by smaller updates up until the 30th of September.
After October of this year, the game presumably won’t be sold in stores anymore, and the makers won’t fix any flaws; instead, it will be a case of “play at your own risk.” A position that had a great deal of potential to develop into something interesting has basically come to a depressing conclusion. Regrettably, in the end, we were forced to deal with another piece of evidence demonstrating that simply knowing the truth about a well-known business is not enough to ensure success.
