Marvel Avengers Made Square Enix Lose US$63 Million

To say that Marvel’s Avengers the game is a huge disappointment is putting it lightly. It wasn’t a good multiplayer superhero brawler game. Guess Square Enix got hit hard by negative public reception.

Based on their recent second quarter 2021 financial report, the company reported a US$63 million loss over the last few months thanks to Marvel’s Avengers. This is according to a tweet from Astri Advisory Japan KK founder David Gibson.

Square Enix did not disclose how many copies were sold, but chances are Square Enix moved 3 million copies across all platforms. To break even, they needed to sell 5 million. Thankfully their Final Fantasy offerings help offset that bit of bad news (Final Fantasy VII Remake, FFXIV in the long term).
