"I work 10 hours, watch end game 2 times on weekdays at least 6 hours", said Agustin Alanis in a message on Twitter on Monday that was accompanied by a picture of himself and a theater attendant holding his 110th ticket stub for the movie. Others have taken issue with the fact that they are not based on the actors' likenesses from the MCU films; they also feature different voice actors.
Talking with IGN, Crystal Dynamics' Lead Creative Director Shaun Escayg stated that the designs would not be changed: "We are always listening to, and welcome feedback from our community", stated Escayg.
Around 12 minutes of Marvel's Avengers gameplay has leaked from a private showing of the game at E3 2019. Crystal Dynamics has certainly received the complaints of this segment of the fanbase, but they don't now have any plans to change the overall design that we saw at E3 this year. However, he was adamant that "there are now no plans to change our character designs".
"The level of detail and overall polish of the character models will absolutely continue to improve as we get closer to launch", he said.
Although this may come as a disappointment to some potential players, hopefully another full year in development will help make the new character designs shine a bit more. It seems we'll be getting a single player campaign, with control moving between all the characters at certain points in the story, plus an ongoing array of co-op missions we can play online with friends.
Marvel's Avengers will be heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 15th May 2020.
