Marvel Games and Skydance New Media have announced that they have partnered to create a brand new blockbuster action adventure game. The game, which has not been revealed yet, will create an original story for the Marvel universe but clues are very light on what heroes and villains will be the focus of the game. It is likely early days in the development of the game, so we may not see for a while what Skydance New Media has up its sleeve. What could be exciting is that Amy Hennig, creative director of Uncharted, is leading on this.

“I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game,” said Hennig, President, Skydance New Media. “The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.”
“Amy has been setting the bar for narrative adventure games for decades and we are happy to be collaborating with the talented and experienced New Media team at Skydance,” said Jay Ong, Executive Vice President & Head of Marvel Games. “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.”
