Marvel's Avengers has more to show on February 16 with a deep dive into PS5, Xbox Series X, and Clint


Can this game rally or is it too late to catch back up?

With the way things are looking for Marvel's Avengers, we're long overdue a check-in with Crystal Dynamics. The next War Table video – a status update on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of Avengers, to say nothing of Clint's story Future Imperfect – is scheduled for February 16, 2021.

It's safe to say the post-launch rollout hasn't gone to plan – and that's understandable, to a point; 2020 was rough – but the rate at which content is coming in feels like a crawl, even for the most patient fans.

These content delays are made significantly worse when you think about what we're getting (first Kate, then Clint) compared to what we could've gotten instead (any number of other, higher-profile fan-favorite characters, locations, and scenarios). It feels like Avengers' live-service woes have snowballed out of control. People had fun with the game around launch, but now, the timing's all out of whack.

Hopefully this War Table deep dive can give players concrete, compelling reasons to stick around. As someone who was (at one point) waiting for the PS5 edition, I'm going to need a lot more convincing.

It's increasingly tough to wrap my head around the whole Spider-Man deal with PlayStation.
