Remember earlier this year when a major Marvel video game was released promising post-release support for months to come?
The multiplayer-focused game is running into some issues. Namely that developer "Crystal Dynamics seemingly pushing back a number of its roadmap objectives while simultaneously trying to fix what currently ails the game".
This is all according to an article over on Forbes that goes on to describe an ever-shrinking player base on PC that's making it difficult for some to even play the game at all unless they choose to drop in solo. The author draws a direct parallel between Avengers and Anthem (hey remember Anthem 2.0?).
A hesitant developer and a dwindling player base don't typically mix well. We've seen this time and again. Developers/publishers that dedicate themselves to continually supporting a game for years do sometimes reap the reward (FF14, Warframe, even Fallout 76 a bit). Whereas these quick cut and run jobs only hurt everyone involved. Players feel left out in the cold, developers are stuck between fixing the game and adding to it, and the franchise itself just sits and suffers.
If you bought Avengers how do you feel about the game just stuck in limbo? If you haven't bought it, were you considering it if the game kept updating?
