The next-gen versions of Marvel's Avengers have been pushed back until next year.
In a State of the Game update, it was announced that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S versions of Marvel's Avengers have been delayed into next year. The delay was made in order to make sure that the game's development team has the time to deliver a next-gen showcase for all that the game is meant to be.
"We've also made the decision to shift our PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S launch to next year to ensure that we give our team the time to deliver a next-gen experience showcasing all that this game is meant to be," stated developer Crystal Dynamics Head of Studio Scot Amos. "More details to come."
Despite the delay of the next-gen versions of Marvel's Avengers, gamers will be able to play the current-gen versions on the upcoming consoles. This can be done by either inserting the game disk or redownloading the game. Two of the benefits of playing the current-gen versions of the game on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S will be improved framerates and faster loading times.
Those who upgrade to the next-gen versions of Marvel's Avengers will still be able to play co-op with their friends who are playing on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Gamers will also be able to carry their existing save-game over to the next-gen consoles should they upgrade their systems. All of the above, as well as the next-gen upgrades to the upcoming consoles, will be available free of charge.
It was stated that the next Marvel's Avengers WAR TABLE presentation will be in November. The presentation will touch on the Super Heroes, Super Villains, and settings on the game's roster that will be coming to the title over the next few months.
Marvel's Avengers is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. The game will make its way to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S sometime next year.
