Square Enix and Marvel Teaming Up for Avengers Game and Future Titles

/ Jan 26th, 2017 No Comments

Avengers Video Game

Square Enix announced it has agreed to a licensing deal with Marvel Entertainment that spans multiple games across multiple years. The first game stemming from this partnership will be a Crystal Dynamics-developed project based on The Avengers.

The Avengers game will feature characters, environments and iconic moments that define the heroes. Square Enix studio Crystal Dynamics, the developer of the Tomb Raider franchise, is creating an original story based on Thor, Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America. Square Enix said The Avengers game will introduce a “universe gamers can play in for years to come.”

The game is expected to be officially announced in 2018, but a teaser trailer was released by Square Enix. The trailer can be viewed below. There is a focus on reassembling the team in the first video.

Marvel’s deal with Square Enix will allow Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal to create games based on “beloved Marvel” characters for multiple years, though terms of the deal were not disclosed.

For Marvel, the deal is a firm commitment to brings its famous comic book, movie and television heroes to video games with the help of a talented development team.

“…[W]e 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,” Senior Vice President of Games and Innovation at Marvel Entertainment Jay Ong said. “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.”

It seems Marvel is serious about bringing its characters to video games despite Disney’s own development studio shutting down. Insomniac Games previously announced a Spider-Man game that will release for PlayStation 4.
