Marvel’s Avengers was recently released on the PS4, but developer Crystal Dynamics has announced that the next-gen version of the game has been delayed into 2021. Until the game is released release on the PS5, gamers will have to rely on backwards compatibility.
The studio has also pushed back the first DLC, Marvel’s Avengers: Kate Bishop – Taking AIM, back a bit and will no longer be launching this month.
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. More details to come.
Until then, however, you’ll be able to continue playing the current-gen (PS4/Xbox One) Marvel’s Avengers game on next-gen platforms to take advantage of their powerful hardware, be it via inserting a physical disk or redownloading the game. Two of the most obvious benefits of this are improved frame rates and faster loading times. In addition, players who make the jump to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S will still be able to play co-op with their friends on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One respectively as well as carry their existing save-game forward to the next-generation of consoles!Scot Amos, Head of Studio
Gamers who purchase the current-gen version of the game will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version for free when it’s available. For the moment, there is no release date for the PS5 version of the game.
