THQ’s big-time bloodletting back in August meant the end of its Brisbane, Australia studio and scuttled the publisher’s planned video game adaptation of The Avengers. Footage of the game in its pre-alpha state released last week and was immediately smashed by YouTube. Now another video has leaked out.
[Kotaku AU Editor: The original post that we published last week that explains the project in a bit more depth can be found here. The videos that were leaked to us were uploaded onto YouTube but were removed within hours of publication after THQ lodged a copyright complaint to the video hosting site. We have re-published this US post for those who did not get a chance to see the clip last week.]
You can get a look at how Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Super Skrull would have fought in this game, if this footage is on the level. I don’t have any confirmation that it is, although given its elaborate quality and earlier leaks, it seems reasonable to think so. It also resembles some videos that Kotaku Australia found on Thursday purporting to show the unfinished work on the Avengers game.
In August, THQ vaporized its MX vs. ATV series and walked away from de Blob. Two months earlier it shuttered Kaos Studios, makers of Homefront.
