KEY POINTS

  • The launch of "Marvel's Avengers" has been moved by Crystal Dynamics to September 4th, 2020
  • The remake of "Final Fantasy VII" was also moved by Square Enix to April 10, 2020
  • Both studios will use the time to polish their games to give fans the best experience 

In a strikingly similar way to Square Enix's move to delay the release of “Final Fantasy VII Remake” to April 10, 2020, Crystal Dynamics also gave its fans some bad news as the debut “Marvel's Avengers” was moved to a later date.

“Final Fantasy VII Remake” Yoshinori Kitase said in a statement that their decision to move its release date from March 3 to the abovementioned date is for them to have more time to “apply final polish” to the game to give their fans “the best possible experience.”

He admitted that it was a tough decision and apologized while at the same time, thanked the players for their patience and support.

On the other hand, Crystal Dyamics made a similar move and opted to move the release date of “Marvel's Avengers” from May 15 to September 4, 2020.

Engadget, who echoed Crystal Dynamics Co-Head of Studio Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, said that the delay will give them more time to create a video game that will rise up to the expections of all “True Believers.”

“To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve,” said the letter.

For now, fans can binge watch tons of superhero-themed series or play Marvel-centered games on their mobile phones. It'll be worth the wait, though, and the same goes for “Final Fantasy.”
