Square Enix and Marvel Entertainment announced joint work on several projects at once. This was both companies reported in social networks.
Games in the Marvel Universe will include studios like Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider series) and Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided).
The first project has no official name yet and is presented under the heading The Avengers Project.
As Eurogamer notes , collaborative games seem to have been under development for too long, as the publisher did not even provide any details, including target platforms and an approximate release date.
Currently there is another major Marvel intellectual property game under development – Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, but it remains unclear whether this project will take place in the same universe as the Square Enix projects. In the cinema, this kind of partnership between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures was achieved.
At the end of October 2016, a Reddit user from Montreal saw a presentation of an unannounced Shadow of the Tomb Raider from an unknown passenger on the subway. Then Kotaku confirmed that the series was handed over to Eidos Montreal.
Editor Kotaku stressed that Eidos Montreal is engaged not only in Avengers and Tomb Raider, but also in another Marvel project. In his opinion, this may mean that the Deus Ex series, after weak sales of Mankind Divided, has been paused.
On January 23, the filming of the movie “The Avengers: War of Infinity” started, the premiere of which is scheduled for May 3, 2018. It can be assumed that the release of the game will be close to this date.
