Those who have given up on Marvel’s Avengers for a long time and assumed that online support has already ended may be surprised by the news that Crystal Dynamics and publishers Square Enix have stated that online support will soon be ending.
Part of a blog post written by ‘Marvel’s Avengers Development Team’ and published on Friday night reads:
To our amazing community,
After two-and-a-half years and introducing twelve of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, following Update 2.8 on March 31, 2023, we will no longer add new content or features to Marvel’s Avengers. All official support for the game will end on September 30, 2023.
Even after official support ceases on September 30, 2023, both single- and multi-player gameplay will continue to be available…
As a show of our appreciation for our community, starting March 31, 2023, we will make all the game’s Marketplace, Challenge Card, and Shipment cosmetic content available to all players for free. Every single Outfit, Takedown, Emote, and Nameplate from the Marketplace, Challenge Cards, and Shipments will be free for all players from this date onwards if you own a copy of the game.
Gifting the full library of Marketplace cosmetic content is a way to thank our community by letting everyone experience the breadth and depth of content in Marvel’s Avengers.
We know this is disappointing news as everyone in our community has such a connection to these characters and their stories. We’re so, so grateful that you came on this adventure with us. Your excitement for Marvel’s Avengers – from your epic Photo Mode shots to your threads theorizing who our next Heroes would be, to your Twitch streams – has played a large part in bringing this game to life.
We hope you continue to play and enjoy Marvel’s Avengers. We can’t thank you enough for your support and for being part of our super team.

Marvel Avengers Game Development Ends, But Cosmetics are Up for Grabs!
Although this is presented as a show of kindness on the part of the developers, the game’s demise may be directly attributed to the marketplace, which was bound by some delusional notion that every game needs to be a Forever Game, dependent on the grind inherent to a live service experience.

It was made clear at the time of last year’s transaction for Embracer to purchase the game’s developers, cutting them off from the publisher that made the Avengers license deal, that support for games produced before the acquisition would remain. This shows that the decision was made because there are no longer enough individuals interested in playing or purchasing Marvel’s Avengers-related content.
The game will not, as the letter indicates, be completely removed from the web. As of September 30th, there will be no further updates or technical support, but you can still play the game and engage in multiplayer.

Frequently asked questions
Is Avengers game shutting down?
Although Marvel's Avengers support has ended, that does not mean operations will cease. While digital retailers will no longer provide Marvel's Avengers after September 30, individuals who have already purchased it will be able to redownload it.
Is Avengers game repetitive?
It took us about 12–13 hours to complete the game. The only thing that makes each mission feel fresh is switching up the superhero you play as, and while kamelakhan is a great character with fantastic gameplay, the game's story is simplistic and cliched and only so-so overall.
How do you play Spiderman in Avengers?
If you have the most up-to-date build installed, you'll notice an inverted version of Spider-Man hanging to the left of the other heroes. The hero selection menu will tell you that you can't play as Spider-Man until you locate him on the helicarrier.
