Consoles, mobile, VR – nobody can escape the massive Marvel/Disney expansion.
Mike Jones, Vice President, and Executive Producer told GameSpot the following: „We have a roadmap. We have some incredible mobile, console, and VR games planned that I couldn’t announce or talk about today. We are curating our portfolio and trying to find the best match for the character, partner, genre, platform and trying not just to see who wants a license to make a game. We’re very active in planning what are the right experiences for the right franchises for the right platforms, as well as finding the right partners who can provide the best of that.
A lot of times partners come to us and tell us they’re passionate about a character and have an amazing idea for a project. While other times, we have partners and developers that we respect and want to work with. It’s music and lyrics, and we’re always trying to find those perfect marriages.
Marvel Studios decides who directs a film based on a character’s genre and type of story they’re in, so we’re similarly thinking the same way of who would be perfect for a Spider-Man or an Avengers game experience. We want to make sure that we pair the right characters and the right franchises with the best possible developers. There is a clinical portfolio management excel spreadsheet component to this process, but more importantly, it’s about passion.”
He also hinted at a The Defenders game, which, seeing the fast-paced Marvel expansion into gaming, is probably a semi-confirmation of another game being in development..
