Square Enix revealed that two of its biggest 2020 video games will not be arriving as expected. Both the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers have been delayed by the publisher in order to give the developers more time to polish up the gameplay experience.
Final Fantasy VII Remake suffered a slight delay and has been pushed back from 3 March 2020 to 10 April 2020. Marvel’s Avengers, however, suffered quite a long delay moving from its initial release date of 15 May 2020 to 4 September 2020.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.”[/perfectpullquote]
Scot Amos and Ros Rosenberg heads at Crystal Dynamics posted a statement regarding the delay of Marvel’s Avengers saying that they will spend this additional development time focusing on fine-tuning and polishing the game to the high standards the fans expect and deserve.
We know the upcoming remake will be getting a demo after the entire product was leaked on the PlayStation Network. Square Enix has yet to reveal any information about it but we can perhaps expect it to be announced and released during the Tapai Game Show later this month.
