The Avengers are finished, though it wasn’t Thanos or Kang that defeated Earth’s mightiest heroes, it was live-service gaming.

Marvel’s Avengers had a hard life, though it’s finally been snuffed out for good as its been delisted from all digital storefronts.

It’s not all doom and gloom for Marvel fans, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 releases this month!

It’s still playable, meaning if you already own a copy you can still play either solo or online with your friends, but work on the game has ground to a halt, and there’s no intention of it being picked up again. This means any bugs, glitches or performance issues currently in the game will stay there, there’ll be no new DLC, and there’ll be no new online events, the game is well and truly gone for good.

The sad part is you can hardly say it had a good run, as the game was slated even before it was released for adopting a live-service model, with plans to consistently update it with new content, playable heroes and missions to complete.

While it had a decent single-player campaign, the DLC was heavily criticised for being more of the same, with the Spider-Man DLC in particular receiving hate for being a PlayStation exclusive, as well as being incredibly underwhelming compared to Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Unfortunately, the game didn’t get its Cyberpunk 2077 or No Man’s Sky redemption story, with its reviews still being heavily mixed online. The post-launch support simply wasn’t enough to keep the game profitable.

Fans were hoping for a sequel that would learn from the mistakes of the first game and fix some of its glaring live-service problems, though it’s unlikely one will ever see the light of day, though a reboot from a different developer is definitely possible.

Marvel’s Avengers is no longer available on digital storefronts, but if you’ve purchased a copy on Xbox, PlayStation or PC platforms, you should still be able to play it.
