Square Enix and Marvel Announce Partnership Leading with The Avengers Project

After Square Enix teased that a big announcement was incoming, today, they have taken to twitter to reveal that they have partnered with Marvel, and will be producing multiple games together, leading with The Avengers Project. Also in on the partnership are Eidos Montréal and Crystal Dynamics. You can watch the very short and very sparse teaser video above.

The summary from the video reads: “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.”

So what do you think of this announcement? A little thin on the ground in the way of details, this reveal might not be enough to get fans salivating over this partnership. Although, these two studios are indeed mighty, so we can expect The Avengers Project to be equally mighty. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
