Marvel's Avengers are disassembling, at least in the realm of games as a service.

Crystal Dynamics is ceasing Marvel's Avengers development according to a source with a great track record regarding leaks about this particular game.

This was by no means unexpected, with the lacklustre performance of the game as well as Square Enix wrapping things up with Crystal Dynamics so something had to give.

The something turned to be Earth's Biggest Flop about Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

It was Miller Ross who broke the news , stating that plans are already in motion to cease development while the official announcement may be coming as early as next week.

Some of the worst issues that plague the game to this day, like artificial time gating and cosmetic microtransactions, will be dealt with in some manner. Still, the plan is to keep the game up for sale until September 2023 which may sound pretty bad.

The ceasing of development appears to reflect only on new content that was supposed to be delivered but the always-online game is meant to stay playable for the existing owners for "as long as possible".

Patrol Mode and a face-off with Ultron were some of the planned content that will never see a release though, just like She-Hulk and Captain Marvel.
