The New Marvel's Avengers Game Is Already Controversial. Here's Everything We Know About It.

Square Enix finally assembled the Marvel superheroes for a video game. But at what cost?

The Avengers are assembling again.

Earth's Mightiest Heroes have appeared in various video games over the years, most notably coming together for the Marvel vs. Capcom series that captivated players for decades, and the classic Marvel Ultimate Alliance series, which gave us a glimpse of what a narrative-driven Marvel team-up game could look like. But aside from some fondly remembered retro titles, we haven't really seen a great action/adventure game that tells the full Avengers story.

So when it was announced that Marvel would partner with Square Enix to make a new Avengers game, comic book fans were absolutely stoked. And after seeing teaser footage released this week at the E3 gaming conference, it looks like Square Enix's Marvel's Avenger is exactly what fans have long been hoping for: a narrative-based, third-person Avengers action game that allows players to feel the full might of their favorite Marvel heroes. But not everyone is on board with it just yet. Here's everything we know about Marvel's Avengers (so far).


When is the release date?

Marvel's Avengers is scheduled for a May 15, 2020 release date on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. So, it will be out a little less than a year away, if everything goes according to plan. It is available to pre-order for PC, PS4, and Xbox on the Square Enix website, as well as on Amazon.

Who's making it?

Marvel's Avengers is being developed by Marvel Entertainment, Square Enix, Eidos Montreal, and Crystal Dynamics. Gamers recognize Square Enix as one of the most significant development studios in the history of the industry, with beloved RPGs like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts coming from the Japanese company. Eidos Montreal is the studio behind the Deus Ex games, and Crystal Dynamics is notable for developing the highly-praised Tomb Raider reboot from 2013.
