To our wonderful community,
After two and a half years and Update 2.8 on March 31, 2023, introducing twelve of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, we will no longer be adding new content or features to Marvel’s Avengers. All official support for the game will end on September 30, 2023.
Even after official support ends on September 30, 2023, both single and multiplayer gameplay will be available…
… As a show of our appreciation for our community, starting March 31, 2023 we will make all in-game Marketplace, Challenge Cards and Shipment cosmetic content available to all players for free. If you own a copy of the game, every outfit, takedown, emote and nameplate, challenge card, and shipment from the Marketplace will be free for all players from this date.
Gifting the entire library of Marketplace cosmetic content is a way to thank our community by letting everyone experience the breadth and depth of content at Marvel’s Avengers.
We know this is disappointing news because everyone in our community has a deep connection to these characters and their stories. We are so grateful that you come on this adventure with us. Your enthusiasm for Marvel’s Avengers – from your epic photo mode shots, to your threads about who will be our next heroes, to your Twitch streams – has played a huge part in bringing this game to life.
We hope you will continue to play and enjoy Marvel Avengers. We can’t thank you enough for your support and for being a part of our super team.

while the embrasure struck a deal last year to buy out the game’s developers, separating them from the publisher the avengers licensing deal, it was made clear at the time that any games released prior to the sale would continue to be supported. Which suggests the decision is simply down to not enough people wanting to play or buy the stuff marvel’s avengers anymore.
As the note says, this doesn’t mean the game is disappearing from the internet entirely. You can still play it, even in multiplayer; After September 30, there will be no further updates or technical support for it.
