Marvel Games Won’t Be Interconnected As The MCU Films Are

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will not be followed by game adaptations from the Disney-owned comic book company’s IP.


Recently, Marvel has been making a solid effort to expand into games. It tried this for a few years in the late 2000s and early 2010s with SEGA. Still, then, Sony brought the company success (and we also wrote about Marvel trying, but failing, to do the same with Xbox!), as the great reception of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 led to its PlayStation 5 remaster and PC port, then the standalone add-on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and a full-fledged PlayStation 5-exclusive second instalment, and Insomniac Games is already working on Marvel’s Wolverine, too…

Meanwhile, Electronic Arts and Motive are developing a game based on Iron Man, and Amy Hennig, previously responsible for the success of Uncharted, is working on a World War II-setting Captain America and Black Panther game at Skydance. So, that’s officially four projects (Firaxis’ Marvel’s Midnight Suns and Niantic’s Marvel World of Heroes make it six), so it’s fair to wonder if there will be any connection between them in the way we’ve seen in Marvel’s films. This question was answered by Bill Rosemann, one of Marvel’s executives, at Gamesindustry:

“We have all these different realities. Now they’re all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their story. We don’t want to say, ‘you can’t blow up the moon because this game over here by another studio needs the moon.’ We want to give everyone the freedom and the clear lane to tell their story,” says Rosemann.

It makes perfect sense. It’s better to keep the games separate because you shouldn’t see them referring to each other later on, and anyone who doesn’t know either of them won’t understand what’s going on…
