Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have announced that the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game has been delayed until September 4, 2020. It was previously scheduled for launch in May.

Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, the co-studio heads of Crystal Dynamics, describe their desire to “deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience.” They say the delay is necessary to make that happen.

“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.”
