Square Enix Is Making The Avengers And More Marvel Games

Marvel's move back into console gaming takes a huge step today, as the comic book company announces a multi-year, multi-game partnership with Square Enix, beginning with The Avengers Project.

Developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos Montreal, The Avengers Project is the working title for the first game to come from the newly-announced partnership. Details are scant, and the description provided is pretty vague.

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.

The announcement was accompanied by a trailer, which is also rather vague.

We'll have plenty of time to speculate about exactly what The Avengers Project is, as more details on the game and additional games being developed under the partnership are expected in 2018.

The partnership is another indication, alongside the Spider-Man game being made for PlayStation 4, that Marvel is shifting its gaming focus from mobile back around to consoles and PC.


    Ugh I hope marvel are writing the story and dialog.

      And if they are I hope it's Al Ewing writing, and NOT Bendis...

    I was expecting Kingdom Hearts 3.14 pre prologue 3 enhanced edition where they introduce marvel to disney characters then completely ignore them in favour of more yaoi bait with sora and riku. Still not sure which is the better outcome....

    Any time a games publisher goes in on developing a "universe", it always ends horribly at the first game.

    I'm happy to be wrong, but that lack of genuine passion for an individual project is hard to mask.

      They've managed pretty well in the movies.

        Advent children?

          Haha. I wasn't very clear. I meant Marvel set out to create a universe in the movies and they are doing pretty well.

    Marvel really are trying to take the Mantle from DC in regards to best comic book game. They are going to have to do produce something phenomenal to kick Arkham Asylum from its perch.

    Then Superman 64.....

    I think I will wait till its out before I call my judgement but previous experience with movie games has not been that swell.
    Square do make pretty games though so hopefully that counts for something

    i guess time will tell. i enjoyed both Tomb Raider and the first Deus Ex game but the idea that Crystal Dynamics can take the same formula and reskin it to fit Marvel is rather ludicrous imo

    unless they are doing some Black Widow / Agent 13 stealth game haha

    ... and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story...
    I cannot reconcile these two adjacent statements...

    Can we please have Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

      I wish!
      Marvel Heroes is better after adding gamepad support, but still not what I want.
