Marvel Rivals apologizes after banning negative comments

The developer of an upcoming Marvel game has apologized after content creators were told they could not leave negative reviews.

Marvel Rivals faced criticism after several people who played a test version of the game were asked to sign a “non-disparagement” clause in their contract with the developer.

It said players agree not to make any public statements that could harm the game’s reputation, such as negative reviews, “belittling” the game or making “disparaging or sarcastic comments”.

Following the backlash, Marvel Rivals said it apologized for “the confusion, suspicion and disappointment caused by these overly strict terms”.

“We would like to apologize for any unpleasant experiences or doubts caused by a misunderstanding of these terms,” he said in a post on X, previously Twitter.

“We actively encourage creators to share their thoughts, suggestions and honest criticism as they play.”

It added it was working with people who raised concerns about the clause to revise the contract, and change its terms to “be less restrictive and more creator-friendly”.

The game was developed by Chinese gaming giant NetEase in collaboration with Marvel Games.

‘Very disappointed’
Marvel Rivals is an upcoming free-to-play shooting game for PC, where players control comic book heroes and villains like Spider-Man and Scarlet Witch.

It is currently testing an early version of the game with a small number of people.

And some people online have defended the clause based on this – arguing that it’s too early in the game’s development to be negative about it.

But others were more critical, with US player Brandon Larned, known as Seagull to his 1.2m followers on Twitch, saying he was “very disappointed” with the game’s publisher.

“The contract takes away your right to review the game negatively… many streamers have signed without reading just to play,” he said.

He has yet to comment on the developer’s response.
