Marvel’s Avengers Glitch Accidentally Reveals Player IP Address

Marvel’s Avengers players on PS5 should be wary of streaming the game online as a glitch in the latest patch is causing sensitive information, including usernames and IP addresses, to display on-screen.

The official Marvel’s Avengers Twitter account announced the issue after users, including Forbes contributing writer Paul Tassi, reported seeing their information being displayed at the top of their screens for all to see. Developer Crystal Dynamics confirmed it’s investigating and urged players to “refrain from streaming” until a hotfix is deployed on June 23 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. Though it’s been confirmed to impact PS5 players in particular, it’s unclear if this glitch affects other platforms.

This is bad for a number of reasons, as someone’s IP address could lead to that person being doxxed if the information is shared publicly. Doxxing is not uncommon among gamers, and this wouldn’t be the first time a company has been responsible for the accidental leakage of personal information.

Crystal Dynamics said it will announce via its social channels when the issue has been resolved. We’ve reached out to publisher Square Enix for comment and will update this post if we hear back.

This glitch comes off the heels of the release of Marvel’s Avengers’ V1.8.0 patch, which introduced new content to the action-adventure game. This includes a new Villain Sector to clear out, an upcoming Cosmic Threat Event starting on June 24, and a reduction to required gauntlets needed to complete the Mega Hive. There are also adjustments to combat and multiplayer matchmaking.

In other Marvel’s Avengers news, Crystal Dynamics unveiled gameplay from the War of Wakanda DLC, which adds Blank Panther as a playable character and may be the game’s biggest expansion yet.
