The next couple of years are looking incredibly packed with games based on Marvel properties. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is scheduled for 2023, while Marvel’s Wolverine will be arriving after that, while Uncharted creator Amy Hennig is leading a team at Skydance New Media on another single player Marvel game. Those who’re looking for some multiplayer action, though, are also going to have stuff to look forward to.
In its recent quarterly investor presentation, while detailing the company’s upcoming slate of games, EnaD Global 7 confirmed that a new AAA MMORPG based on a Marvel IP is in development at Austin-based Dimensional Ink Studios. In case that’s a name that’s not familiar to you, that’s the team that developed and handles DC Universe Online. The Marvel MMORPG is being led by Jack Emmet, who was the designer and creative lead on City of Heroes, and also currently leads the DC Universe Online team.
There’s no other details on the project, though considering the fact that it’s mentioned as a “longer-term” release, we can probably assume that it’s in the earlier stages of development right now. Meanwhile, the track record of the developer and the games it has worked on should also give us a good idea of what sort of game this is going to be.
Interestingly, this might not be the only AAA multiplayer Marvel game that’s in the works. Earlier this year, it was rumoured that PlayStation was working on an unannounced multiplayer Marvel title- read more on that through here.
