Square Enix sent a message to the world today which spoke of their new partnership with Marvel. The two studios apparently aim to bring several games to consumers, beginning with an Avengers title featuring the hashtag ‘reassemble’. Just under two hours ago the project reveal went live, after both companies teased an announcement just 24 hours ago.
While some fans are praising the coalition, others hoping for a Kingdom Hearts update were left deflated. There’s plenty to get excited about however, with the announcement trailer airing alongside the tweet and the knowledge that development in under way at Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider) with some help from Deus Ex dev Eidos Montreal.
Marvel simultaneously released a press statement which described how “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”.
We’re waiting on 2018 for further details however, so don’t start getting excited just yet – there’s still a long way to go.
