Marvel's Avengers Will Not Change Character Designs After Fan Backlash

Square Enix officially revealed its new Avengers game this week at E3 2019, and the reaction was mixed. And there was also a great amount of criticism in regards to the character models, which some were not in favor of.

He told IGN that while the company is "always listening to" to community feedback, there are "currently no plans" to switch up designs. The game is now scheduled for a May 2020 release so we expect EIDOS Montreal and Crystal Dynamics to further improve things. Speaking to IGN, creative director Shaun Escayg held his ground on the designs.

He did however go on to emphasize that the games was still in its early stages and that, although the core designs wouldn't change, they would be refined further before the launch. When asked why they didn't look like their MCU counterparts from the films, he pointed out that such an idea never came to mind for the team. "We wanted to clearly show that this was our spin on the Avengers", Escayg says.

While fans unhappy with the base designs of the characters won't be happy about the news, the polish we can expect in the future may be all that's needed for anyone who found the designs just a bit lackluster.

Lead combat designer Vince Napoli added, "It's creating a new Marvel universe". As such, the game should look better and better over time. It will retail at $59.99 when it's released in May 2020, but when you pre-order through Walmart, you can swipe it for Xbox or PlayStation 4 for $49.94.
