Marvel has been ramping up its game output over the past few years. Next Marvel’s Spider-Man’s Success in 2018 by Insomniac Games, the team then announced Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, will be released next year. Insomniac is also working on a Wolverine game. Elsewhere, Motive Studio announced last week that it is working on a single player Iron Man game and before that, Marvel pulled the curtain Amy Hennig’s new game features Black Panther and Captain America. There’s also Crystal Dynamic’s Marvel’s Avengersstill getting today’s content and last year’s excellent Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
All of this to say that Marvel has been rolling out a steady stream of games with many more coming soon. However, despite that, you shouldn’t expect the company to create a connected universe like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Marvel Games vice president and creative director Bill Rosemann.
“It’s amazing how the world is so familiar and accepting of the multiverse,” said Rosemann GamesIndustry.bizas reported by Eurogamer. “We have all these different realities. Now it’s all real and we want to give people the freedom to tell their stories. We don’t want to say ‘you can’t blow up the moon. , because this game is here by another studio that needs the moon.’ We wanted to give people the freedom and clear lane to tell their stories.”
He continued, saying that every team has a chance to build their superhero in a Marvel game from scratch with familiar elements.
“Every decision [the Motive team] They’re working on their Marvel universe, their Tony Stark, their Iron Man… they’re building it from the ground up,” said Rosemann. GamesIndustry.biz. “But it’s being built with what we call the Marvel Building Block. As you play the game, it may not be the same Iron Man story you’ve been through before, but there’s a lot of similarities. Self What would you expect from a Marvel story?
“There are things, there are organizations, there are companies, there are groups… I don’t want to say what is and isn’t in this game, but for example, there’s SHIELD, there’s Hydra, there’s the Daily Bugle, there’s the Daily Bugle. these are the building blocks of the Marvel universe. They make it feel like a real Marvel story. Now with that, [Motive is] will tell its story, and we will give them that freedom. ”
It seems unlikely that Insomniac’s Spider-Man will meet Motive’s Iron Man, but if Marvel’s Spider-Man is any indication, we could still have some great gaming experiences.
