Marvel's Avengers lost the majority of its PC players and it's now below 1,000 which is causing serious matchmaking issues. However, Crystal Dynamics are confident PC players will return after the next content update.

It looks like Marvel's Avengers is having some trouble attracting players on PC. According to reports, the game is hovering around 1,000 concurrent players on Steam, which is causing serious matchmaking issues. At one point, the number even dipped below 1,000, which is quite a disappointment for a game that peaked at 28,145 players, which happened shortly after the launch.

It's safe to say that the game is currently in a rough spot but the developer Crystal Dynamics are confident that PC players will return. Shortly after the news of low player count, Crystal Dynamics studio head Scot Amos revealed that more content will be released in the coming weeks.

"We are confident that we'll see PC players (as well as those on Xbox One and PlayStation 4) return to the game as we add exciting new late-game content and demonstrate that we continue to be focused on improving the game," Amos told Kotaku.

He added that there's a new War Zone mission type called Tachyon Rifts coming soon as well as a new Outpost and AIM's Cloning Lab, which requires a coordinated high-level group of four players to beat with new top-end loot rewards for finishing it. Players can also look forward to two new Heroes - Kate Bishop and Cling Barton - the two Hawkeyes they previously mentioned. 

In addition to this, the devs will also work on balance, quality of life features and other improvements in the coming months.

All in all, that's some fresh content coming to the game soon but it remains to be seen if this will be enough to make Marvel's Avengers more attractive than it is now.
