Today (29), Skydance New Media announced through a publication that it has partnered with Marvel Entertainment to develop a AAA action-adventure game with a totally original storyline.
“I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game. The Marvel Universe encapsulates all the action, mystery and emotion of the pulp adventure genre that I love and is perfect for an interactive experience. It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity and humor that make Marvel characters so enduring and allow our players to embody these beloved heroes,” explained Amy Hennig, president of this new interactive division of Skydance and formerly creative director of Naughty Dog.

The post also claims that the project will be in the hands of a “team of developers with decades of experience in AAA action-adventure games”, and will also be supported by a diverse group of creative consultants from the film, television and comic industry.
“Amy has been setting the standard for narrative adventure games for decades. His ambition and vision to create innovative entertainment using the beloved Marvel IP was obvious from our first meeting. We look forward to sharing more with Marvel fans when the time is right,” said Jay Ong, Executive Vice President and Head of Marvel Games.
Apparently, New Media’s focus will be on creating experiences with lots of fidelity and interaction for traditional platforms and emerging streaming services, so this new title is likely to be released for multiple consoles, but that’s just speculation at the moment. We will have to wait a little longer to find out what fruits this partnership will yield.
