Hawkeye was originally slated to be the first post-launch character to come to the game. Things changed, however, and it wound up being fellow archer Kate Bishop (who also uses the Hawkeye name) getting first dibs. While some will undoubtedly question releasing two characters with similar skillsets back-to-back, Crystal Dynamics previously assured that Clint and Kate will sport unique combat styles and abilities. Like all of the post-launch DLC, Operation: Hawkeye will arrive free of charge to players. The studio also released art signaling the introduction of Maestro, a long-time nemesis of the Hulk.

🏹 Marvel’s Avengers Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect
⏭️ PS5 & Xbox Series X|S
Marvel’s Avengers is supposed to have more characters incoming, but right now we only know that Spider-Man will arrive exclusively for the PlayStation version at some point and that Black Panther is likely on the way as well. Despite having a generally well-received story campaign, the game’s multiplayer and live service structure has struggled to retain players since launch. We’ll see if another Hawkeye, a new villain, and whatever enhancements the new-gen versions offer will be impressive enough to reassemble players who have fallen off.
