The unnamed game features the collab of Captain America and Black Panther as they ward off the initial advent of the Hydra. The veiled project takes place in the WW2 era, and both superheroes will form a duo to deal with the forces of Hydra. We may see more characters making an appearance, like in the movies, but it is not confirmed.
It is worth mentioning to take this rumor with a grain of salt. Although the leaker has had correct scoops in the past, and his reporting has been confirmed before. There have been no official confirmations by Skydance Media Interactive. However, we may hear something by the end of this year.
The new AAA game studio, Skydance Media is helmed by Amy Hennig and Electronic Arts veteran Julian Beak, and this will be the first AAA project for the newborn team of developers.
During the project’s original announcement, Skydance Media stated: “I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game,” cited, Amy Hennig, President of Skydance New Media.
The official announcement for the partnership did not reveal anything about the game. However, Jay Ong, head of Marvel Games, cited: “Their ambition and vision for making innovative entertainment using beloved Marvel IP was obvious from our first meeting. We’re excited to share more with Marvel fans when the time is right.”
The announcement resumed: “We are enormously excited to be working inside the Marvel Universe to craft a rich narrative of our own,” said Beak, Executive Vice President of Skydance New Media. It continued, “Jay and his team at Marvel Games are helping us make the best experiences imaginable.”
Marvel has long dominated the world of comic books and the Hollywood industry. Now, the Marvel-verse is spreading its root into the world of video games. Marvel is collaborating with several goliath game studios to create AAA-sized superhero titles.
This initiative will help Marvel bring a bundle of its famous characters into the world of video games. Besides the aforementioned game, titles like Black Panther, a rumored Iron Man game, Wolverine and Midnight Suns, and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, to name a few, are currently in the skeletal stages of development.
