Marvel’s Avengers is reportedly going through a bit of a crisis right now thanks to a dwindling player base, but Crystal Dynamics’ Scot Amos has remained confident that gamers will return to the superhero title as more content and improvements are rolled out.
Crystal Dynamics Addresses Marvel’s Avengers Dwindling Player Base
Speaking to Kotaku, Amos assured players that the team are working to ‘make the best game possible’ and that more content is on the way, with Clint Barton and Kate Bishop among the first batch of post-launch characters in the pipeline.
He also said that Crystal Dynamics is listening to players’ feedback on Marvel’s Avengers are doing their best to ensure that improvements are made. You can read the lengthy statement below:
To our players: every day we fight to make the best game possible for our community. We have a great community management team at Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix who funnel all of your concerns, suggestions, and feedback to the development team daily. We are listening. We are making fixes, improvements, and additions as fast as we safely can to make Marvel’s Avengers the game we all aspire it to be.
As such, we have a number of new content pieces coming in the weeks ahead including: a totally new War Zone mission type called Tachyon Rifts, a new Outpost that’s a jumping off point for new story missions in the future, and AIM’s Cloning Lab, which requires a coordinated high-level group of four players to beat with new top-end loot rewards for finishing it. And in each of these updates we do tuning and bug fixing to enhance the overall experience.
In addition, we’ve announced two new Heroes coming in the near future: Kate Bishop in Operation: Taking AIM, and after that the double-feature Operation starring Clint Barton… this is the “two Hawkeyes” we mentioned in the last War Table. These new Operations pick up right from where the main Reassemble campaign ended in the core game and will propel the overall world story forward with new mysteries and villains, as well as new multi-player content.
Lastly, we will continue to add new content to the game in the coming months as we address issues and overall game balance, including loot distribution and quality of life features everyone is clamoring for to improve our day-to-day experience from accessibility to co-op communication tools to balancing the economy!
We are confident that we’ll see PC players (as well as those on Xbox One and PlayStation 4) return to the game as we add exciting new late-game content and demonstrate that we continue to be focused on improving the game.
Marvel’s Avengers was released for PS4, PC and Xbox One in September and will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X at launch via a free upgrade for existing owners. Read our review of the game here.
