Square Enix has confirmed that their long-awaited Avengers game is in the works and will be unveiled at E3 which takes place next month.
About the untitled Avengers game
According to Marvel, the game will feature a completely new and original story, and will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. The project will be jam-packed with characters, environments, and iconic moments that will thrill Marvelites.
It also looks like Marvel will continue the trend of hiring top-notch talent for games based on their most popular characters. “The Avengers project,” as it’s being referred to at the moment by Marvel, is being developed by Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider), with help from Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex).
Shaun Escayg, former Naughty Dog creative director, and Stephen Barry, a 27-year games vet from EA and Visceral Games, have also joined the project in leadership roles at Crystal Dynamics.
Marvel’s Avengers will be shown during Square Enix’s E3 conference on June 10th at 6pm PT / 2am BST.
