Last night on Marvel’s official Facebook account, they told us to tune in this morning for a big announcement. While some thought we were getting a look at upcoming films like Thor: Ragnarok or the Infinity Wars, which just started production, no one knew what was for sure coming.
In a teaser trailer posted at 10 this morning, it looks as though that Marvel is teaming up with Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal to create a series of games that they have dubbed “The Avengers Project.” These are some of the best companies in the world at what they do for video games. The resurgence of the Tomb Raider series was because of Crystal Dynamics and Dues Ex was Edios’ brainchild and both have been very well acclaimed for their visuals and their stories.
There’s no window for when this “Avengers project” is set to launch, but we’d guess it’s planned for 2018 or 2019 when the next two Avengers films (“Infinity War” and an untitled sequel) are scheduled to debut. Check out the trailer below!
