In a press release sent just moments ago, Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix have stated that they have signed a deal that stretches from Glendale, California to Tokyo, Japan in order to develop a brand new set of games based on Marvel’s comic book universe. Crystal Dynamics will be heading up the first game in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, pairing the minds behind the new Tomb Raider with Deus Ex, to create The Avengers.
“Marvel’s diverse, innovative universe has created millions of longtime fans, including all of us,” said Phil Rogers, CEO, Square Enix Americas and Europe. “It’s exciting to bring together Square Enix’s award-winning development studios with Marvel’s extraordinary storytellers to establish a new entertainment powerhouse. This collaboration of passion and talent will craft epic, imaginative experiences allowing gamers to live out their Super Hero dreams like never before.”
