It Is Safe To Say Square Enix ‘Marvel’s Avengers’ Is A Failure

Square Enix has a problem they refuse to admit with Marvel’s Avengers.  It is not a good game and there is nothing that they can do to fix it. A game that was released in early September with the promise of consistent updates and content has not lived it to its promise.  This is not an opinion either, Marvel’s Avengers currently sits with a Metascore of 67/100 and a User Score of 5.1.  With so much hype leading to the release of the game users have not been impressed with the overall game.

Another factor to consider is the lackluster sales of the game. Video game industry analyst David Gibson reported last week that his estimates that only 3 million copies of the game has been sold, and estimates the game cost around $170m-$190m to produce. This news comes on the heel of Square Enix reporting a loss of 6.5 billion Yen for their HD Games division.

We have reported before that Scott Amos, Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics, has confidence that players will come back to the game. He is betting on the patch fix updates and the future content updates for the game even though none of that has been done.  There are issues with the game that were noticed during the beta and still not addressed.

While there are some positives in the game the investment of the game is overall a waste of money.  Steam users have noticed a massive drop in online players that has resulted in ridiculous wait times for online matches. The Hawkeye content updates that were promised within weeks after launch has been delayed multiple times.  Unfortunately Square Enix has not lived up to its promise for an epic game.
