Once again, we’ve got the release dates courtesy of ArtStation (which is also where we got the year for the next game from FireSprite, who recently joined PlayStation Studios).
David Masson San Gabriel is a senior concept artist and costume illustrator who has worked on several titles in the film and TV industry (Overlord, Ready Player One, MIB International, Venom, Wonder Woman 1984, WandaVision, Station 11, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Black Adam, Thor: Love and Thunder, Blue Beetle, Deadpool 3, and Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes), and has two games listed on ArtStation.
One is a Marvel game in development at Skydance New Media, and the other is a project by The Coalition. The former (it would be Amy Hennig’s game) has a 2025 release window on his profile, and the other has quietly removed the 2026 date, but the internet does not forget. The removal was likely at the request of Microsoft (as it is a team at Xbox Game Studios). While it is unofficial information, everything else you can read on his ArtStation profile is accurate.
Hennig’s game (featuring a young Captain America, the World War II Black Panther, American soldier Gabriel Jones of the Howling Commandos, and Nalani, who runs the Wakanda spy network) was announced almost two years ago, and its first teaser video was released a year ago. Therefore, the end of 2025 seems like a realistic launch window. For The Coalition, 2026 seems a bit steep, as Gears 5 was released in 2019, so it’s unlikely to be Gears (of War) 6, but another IP. They have several side projects parked for Gears 6 development, so if they started development in early 2023, the end of 2026 already seems reasonable.
For now, we can only wait: we’ll see and hear more about Amy Hennig’s (Uncharted!) next game next year. Hopefully, it won’t be as much of a flop as Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montréal had with Marvel’s Avengers…
