Skydance New Media recently announced that with Uncharted creator Amy Hennig in charge, they’re working on a new AAA story-driven action-adventure game based on a Marvel property, and since they stopped short of announcing which Marvel property they’re working on exactly, speculation has been rampant since then. Now, however, it seems we may have come closer to narrowing down the possibilities.
Recently on the new Fatman Beyond podcast, co-host Marc Bernardin, who has written various comics for both DC and Marvel, confirmed that he’s working on Skydance’s Marvel game and serving on its writing team alongside Amy Hennig.
Interestingly, as pointed out by MinnMax’s Ben Hanson on Twitter, though he did not say what property the game is based on, the podcast’s co-host Kevin Smith, who is aware of what the game is, said that people in chat guessed what it is immediately- and based on the chat at that point, the two viable contenders seem to be Ant-Man and Fantastic Four.
Of course, this is just speculation at this point and doesn’t exactly serve as concrete evidence, but both of those are pretty likely candidates for a story-driven action-adventure game being developed by an Amy Hennig-led team.
Recently, it was also confirmed that actress Janina Gavankar will also have a role to play in the game. Read more on that through here.
