Marvel's Avengers: disappointing sales and difficulties for Square Enix
Audiences and critics had enthusiastically welcomed the revelation of Crystal Dynamics regarding its next title dedicated to the famous Marvel Avengers. Judging by the fame the Avengers enjoyed, especially at the cinematic level, the game promised to be a great success, creating a lot of hype in the videogame audience. But gradually something has convinced the players less and less, such as the choice of Crystal Dynamics to make Marvel's Avengers a "Game As A Service" - or a title designed to bring a profit even in the long term thanks to microtransactions - with a beta not exactly convincing. .

Marvel's Avengers was released on September 4, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. In just over a month, it has sold over 2 million digital copies, but it was still too early to cheer as the videogame audience became less and less interested in the title, moving away from the game. All of this has spilled into a staggering drop in sales.

According to data provided by David Gibson - the co-founder of Astris Advisory Japan, a company whose job is to provide unique insights from the best analysts in the market - sales of Marvel's Avengers were lower than expected, equal to 60% of initial estimates, insufficient to cover the investment cost of the project, which is between 170 and 190 million dollars.

The removal of users also led to the decision by the developers to postpone the release of the DLC to 2021. The hope is that there may be a recovery for Marvel's Avengers, as previously it happened with other titles as well. At present, Square Enix has not exhibited. It cannot be ruled out that in the coming days we will see discounts that will make the price of the game more attractive and maybe even the arrival of new content that improves the quality of the experience for players, hoping that this will be enough because if the results do not improve, an early termination of Marvel's Avengers support cannot be ruled out.
