Marvel’s Avengers is slated to get a growing roster of heroes, but the start of that expansion has been pushed back a bit. The first new character, Kate Bishop aka Hawkeye, will no longer be coming this month.
Crystal Dynamics announced the delay in a blog post detailing various changes to its roadmap. It refers to this as a “slight delay,” but didn’t give a new release target for the new character.
“Moving forward, we intend to have a fixed, predictable patching cycle to ensure all new content meets both our and your high standards and has time for extensive internal testing,” the post reads. “We know fans are hungry for new content, but delivering a fun experience is our priority. With this in mind, we’ve decided to push Kate Bishop’s Operation launch back a bit, out of October. We’re sorry for this slight delay, but we are dedicated as a team to quality first.”
