They’ve principally been good at it — Spider-Man: Miles Morales was fairly good, and Spider-Man 2 correct needs to be fairly good as properly; the Guardians of the Galaxy recreation from this week has been a pleasing shock — and now the writer has a brand new developer of their pocket.
Yesterday, Marvel introduced a partnership with Skydance’s New Media division that’ll see the creation of a brand new action-adventure recreation based mostly on one other Marvel character.

It’s an honor to have the ability to inform an authentic story with all of the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to allow our gamers to embody these heroes that they love.”
The brand new recreation might be a “narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure recreation,” which largely appears to be the bread and butter of this new wave of Marvel video games. Already, followers are speculating about who the subsequent hero to get a solo recreation might be. A preferred alternative up to now appears to be Daredevil, a hero who inevitably will get introduced up whenever you speak about Marvel media.
Whoever the lead hero (or heroes) finally ends up being for this new recreation, they’ll have a whole lot of eyes on them when it’s lastly introduced. However a minimum of we all know one factor about it: former io9 man Evan Narcisse might be concerned, so it needs to be good when it will definitely arrives on consoles and PC.
