Wondering why there haven’t been new games for Iron Man, Captain America, et al., lately? It’s actually all quite deliberate.
Marvel’s head of games, TQ Jefferson, has revealed that they are looking for the right developer to make the eventual game based on the Avengers.
Here’s TQ’s full statement to IGN:
The Avengers game will come when we have the right partner, that has the right vision, that has the time to develop a strong, competitive triple-A title and wants to do it right. It has to hit our three pillars: Fun and engaging gameplay, true to the characters, compelling story. Without hitting those notes, we shouldn’t do it. Gamers, they know better. They’re not going to flock to something that’s sub-par.
It’s a (really) welcome departure to Disney’s approach to their other newly acquired big name IP, Star Wars, and we are hoping Marvel finds the right partner sooner rather than later. Who would you nominate as the Avengers game developer? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
