The Avengers Project (Square Enix/Crystal Dynamics/Eidos - 2018)

Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix announced today a multi-year, multi-game partnership, leading with the reveal of The Avengers project. This newly established partnership pairs the creative minds at Marvel and Square Enix for one of the most powerful alliances in interactive entertainment.

A game based on beloved Marvel heroes, The Avengers project is being crafted by Crystal Dynamics – longtime developers of the award winning Tomb Raider series – in collaboration with lauded Deus Ex developer Eidos-Montréal.

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. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. More details on The Avengers project and other games will be announced in 2018.


Kind of a crappy announcement without much information other then a little CG teaser. And no actual game details until 2018?

But the idea of the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex developers working together on Marvel games has me excited that we might actually see some good Marvel based games on par with Batman (along with Insomniac's Spider-man game).

Interesting. I was sort of hoping this announce would be a Thor trailer. :/

Marvel had a great thing going with their Activision games (X-Men, Marvel Ultimate Alliance series). The Spider-Man Shattered dimensions was cool too. After that, I don't remember any other good console Marvel game. Hopefully, this Avengers game will get them on the right track.

I was disappointed they never followed up Ultimate Alliance 2. I look forward to this title!

X-men Origins Wolverine was quite good.

Hopefully this turns out well. I was bummed that Marvel never did an Ultimate Alliance 3 sequel or that DC never did a Justice League Heroes sequel. So I'm hoping this is good.

Also hoping this doesn't cause a new Tomb Raider game to not be made.
