This is one game I cannot wait for! Especially if it’s being helmed by Square Enix! They should hopefully have more info at this years E3…The announcement trailer came out mid last year and there are rumors around a Spider-Man (PS4) cross over as well…but here’s what we know so far:
The Avengers Project – What is it?
Developer: Crystal Dynamics & Eidos Montreal
Release date: TBC
Genre: 3rd person Action-Adventure
The Avengers Project, as it is currently known, will feature a “completely original story” and build a “universe gamers could play in for years to come.’
This news will surely please Marvel fans around the world who had already been let down when a previously planned Avengers game was cancelled a few years back.
The Square-Enix announcement read:
“The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come.”
Jay Ong, Senior Vice President for Games & Innovation at Marvel Entertainment has also spoke of the partnership, saying:
“By partnering with Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal, we are now working with two of the industry’s most talented and respected game development studios to bring Marvel stories to life in ways our fans have never experienced.
“The Avengers Project is a perfect example of how Marvel is making games a key part of the landscape for Marvel storytelling, alongside comics, television and film.
“We can only do this by matching our greatest Super Heroes with the world’s top developers, such as the creative minds at Square Enix.”
