Crystal Dynamics confirms Marvel's Avengers' next roadmap will be announced following the developer's holiday break and end-of-year bug fixes.
One of Marvel's Avengers' most significant tasks as a live-service multiplayer title is to provide a certain amount of content and balance updates as active development continues. Marvel's Avengers' content roadmaps are produced as a way to highlight the upcoming content, providing schedules with forthcoming updates and events for the game's ravenous community.
Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have ushered in an abundance of content for Marvel's Avengers since the latest roadmap. This roadmap accounted for August and September, as well as the fall and winter seasons clumped together. Fall and winter's content brought the release of Spider-Man as well as Marvel's Avengers' very first Raid against Klaw. But while Marvel's Avengers players are now sitting on a lot of content for the game, Crystal Dynamics has shared when they may expect the next roadmap to be announced.
Following Marvel's Avengers' hefty roadmap for the end of 2021, Crystal Dynamics states that players will get a look at its next roadmap at an unspecified time "in early 2022." This is so that Crystal Dynamics' team can take an appreciated and deserved "holiday break," while continuing to iron out various bugs and other issues that players have addressed. With the final 2021 roadmap finished, it makes sense that Crystal Dynamics would return in the following months to share a roadmap for early 2022.
If the previous roadmap can be seen as a template for future roadmaps, there are several updates and developments that players can expect to see early next year. Players are sure to receive a slew of outfits inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly for Marvel's Avengers newcomer, Spider-Man. More recycled events may return into active rotation such as Marvel's Avengers' Tachyon Anomaly or the Red Room Takeover, as well as various community activities.
It is less likely that a new character will be announced with their own Hero Event or Operation for early next year, but it remains a possibility nonetheless that would surely excite fans across all platforms. With any luck, the bugs and visual inconsistencies that fans have discovered will be mostly smoothed out by the time that more new content for the game is announced. Regardless, fans are only months away from hearing the plans for Marvel's Avengers' future, and they can enjoy the commendable volume of content that has been added to Marvel's Avengers in the meantime.
