The company said on Thursday that it plans to show off the second part of its two Hawkeyes’ story arc, which will conclude with Clint Barton DLC, alongside the current-gen versions of the game on February 16.
The first part of the Hawkeyes’ story, Kate Bishop – Taking AIM, launched in December 2020. Picking up shortly after the conclusion of Marvel’s Avengers’ Reassemble campaign, it introduced a new villain, the Super Adaptoid, whose skills and weapons mimic the Avengers’ attacks.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES:
The Kate Bishop DLC was originally scheduled to launch in October 2020, while the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game were planned for release in November.
Publisher Square Enix later confirmed that Marvel’s Avengers failed to turn a profit during its launch month following “slow initial sales”.
Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda said in November that the company hoped to make up for the game’s poor early performance with the release of a significant amount of new content in sixth-month period ending March 31, 2021.
Crystal Dynamics also provided an update on the future of the Tomb Raider series this week. In a video outlining its plans for the franchise’s 25th anniversary this year, the studio revealed that Lara Croft’s next adventure will “unify” the timelines in Core Design’s original Tomb Raider games and its own reboot trilogy.
However, franchise game director Will Kerslake also warned fans that the studio doesn’t have plans “for a major game announcement in the near future”.
