Square Enix Announces Marvel Avengers Game Reveal For E3 2019
Square Enix unveiled on Wednesday the official name for its superhero game which was previously referred to simply as The Avengers Project. The game’s title is Marvel’s Avengers, a name that follows Marvel’s trend of simplifying its other projects like Marvel’s Spider-Man. Square Enix is publishing Marvel’s Avengers while Crystal Dynamics will serve as the developer, and while we’ve only been given a teaser of the game so far with the reveal of its logo and title, the full reveal will take place during Square Enix’s E3 showcase in June 10th at 6 PM Pacific Time.
“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.”
The ambitious Marvel’s Avengers video game project is expected to be huge and the announcement comes at the perfect time. Avengers: Endgame is now the second highest grossing movie of all time with its sights set on taking down James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time. Anything involving the Avengers is going to be red hot, especially a huge video game that may end up playing off of the last few Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
It is entirely possible that the Avengers will have to reassemble to save the universe from Thanos after losing the first time. That is pure speculation at this time, but it would make sense. As to how a game will be able to tackle something so massive, that is a whole other question. With that being said, Square Enix has partnered with Crystal Dynamics and Deus Ex studio Eidos Montreal, which means there are some pretty heavy hitters working behind-the-scenes to tackle the ambitious project.
Crystal Dynamics is known for creating Square Enix’s Tomb Raider series and will be working with Eidos-Montreal, a studio which is responsible for the Deus Ex series. Until we know more about the new game, the old trailer above and a summary of the game released in the past with promises of an entire universe of gameplay is all we have to tide us over until E3.
“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,” Crystal Dynamics’ site said about the game. “Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come.”
Marvel’s Avengers will be fully revealed by Square Enix on June 10th during its E3 presentation.
