A listing on the Microsoft store points to the release.
Marvel’s Avengers was one of the many games that got hit with the delay flu earlier this year. Once slated to hit shelves this April, it was pushed all the way back to September. It promises a story starring the characters known and loved from the various film franchises that’s exploded over the last few years. Not much has been said since the delay happened, but we potentially have a new leak pointing to what the game’s release structure will look like.
A listing allegedly appeared on the Microsoft Store for a Deluxe Edition of the game. As of now, there’s been nothing said about this edition of the game (though we have seen a collector’s edition of the game before). The listing has since disappeared, but the internet never forgets as seen from Twitter user Idle Sloth below. The interesting thing, as he points out with some emojis, is that it’s listed to come out 5 days earlier than the new September 4th release date on August 31st.
It wouldn’t be the first time Early Access was an incentive for a premium edition of a Square Enix title. Shadow of the Tomb Raider, for instance, had a similar release in 2018 As it stands now, we’ll have to treat this as a rumor since the original link has seemingly vanished. We’ll keep you updated when something more official is announced.
