Avengers Project

Post by Cable » 26 Jan 2017, 15:05

Square Enix released a trailer today to tease an Avengers game they will be working on

EDIT: I should note Square Enix is the publisher, not the developer. SE subsidiary Crystal Dynamics is actually making the game (developers of the recent Tomb Raider reboots)

This looks like it might be cool. It's being developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal (Tomb Raider and Deus Ex), and is apparently the first in a multi-game partnership between SE and Marvel. Sounds awesome.

The "if you're different you're dangerous" line sounded very X-Men like.

This looks like it could be good. This is probably a far going hope, but I'd love if the voice we heard was that of Danielle Cage of 20XX and have this game set in that future or something similar

How cool would it be if they had you pick between two canon superhero parents at the beginning of the game and then you played a create-a-character child with a mix of those powers? It would be difficult to pull off storywise (need slightly different dialogue for every character combination) but it would be awesome

Buried in this article is a revelation that while Crystal Dynamics is working on Avengers Project, Eidos will be working on another Guardians of the Galaxy game:

"Square Enix has already said it will not reveal anything more of the [Avengers] project until 2018. Could it also see release in 2018? It seems unlikely, considering how fresh the ink is on Marvel's deal. Back at Eidos Montreal, a small team is currently aiding Crystal Dynamics' Avengers project and, Eurogamer has heard, in the early stages of production on the second Marvel game based around Guardians of the Galaxy. This project will be lead by Eidos Montreal."

Kotaku's reporting that the next Deus Ex is being postponed indefinitely on account of this deal taking priority at Eidos Montreal.

Marvel. You have betrayed me.

EDIT: Well, more accurately: Square Enix, you have been the same meddling jackass of a publisher that you were while Mankind Divided was in development. The sooner you realize that your western studios are creating great work in spite of you, instead because of you, the happier we'll all be.
