Looks like the rumors were true, Crystal Dynamics will be dropping support for Marvel’s Avengers later this year! An official announcement was made today just hours after a rumor surfaced that Crystal Dynamics would end support for the game, as the studio’s developers would move on to work on the next untitled Tomb Raider game.

Marve’s Avengers FAQ and Support Details:

The game’s latest patch tagged as version 2.8 will be released on March 31, 2023, and it will be the last title update that brings new features or content to the game. After that, all official support for Marvel’s Avengers will end on September 30, 2023.

Fortunately, even with the end of support, both single player and multiplayer will continue to be playable. Patch 2.7, which introduced the Winter Soldier to the game, will be the last character to be released. No new cosmetics will be planned for the Marketplace, and all final balance updates will be released in March as part of the 2.8 update.

The good news? Starting March 31, 2023, Crystal Dynamics will make all the game’s cosmetic content, challenge card, shipping available to all players for free. Every outfit, download, emote, nameplate from the Marketplace, and challenge cards and deliveries will be free for all players from March onwards, as long as they have a copy of the game.

As for credits and economy, check the table below as well as the official announcement from the studio.

Along with the end of the development, we will also turn off the cosmetics market. When Update 2.8 launches on March 31, 2023, credits will no longer be purchasable and any remaining credit balances will be converted to in-game resources to aid ongoing adventures. Below is a table with the resources that will be provided based on existing credit balances:
