Square Enix will release Marvel’s Avengers’ first new playable hero, Kate Bishop, on December 8th.
The character was originally scheduled to arrive in October, but was delayed following a troubled launch for the Crystal Dynamics-developed title.
While Square Enix hasn’t shared actual sales numbers for Avengers, its latest earnings results suggest the game has performed below expectations.
According to recent figures, the publisher’s most recent quarterly earnings figures suggest Avengers cost Square Enix almost $190 million to produce and market but only sold around three million copies.
In the US, Avengers appeared to make a strong start, where it was September’s best-selling game, but by October it was reported that matchmaking problems were being exacerbated by a declining player count, with the PC version of the game dipping below 1,000 concurrent users.
