Square provided the following information earlier today along with the below trailer:
A game based on beloved Marvel heroes, The Avengers project is being crafted by Crystal Dynamics – longtime developers of the award winning Tomb Raider series – in collaboration with lauded Deus Ex developer Eidos-Montréal.
The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. More details on The Avengers project and other games will be announced in 2018.
With Marvel reigning supreme in the box office right now, it should surprise nobody that an agreement was crafted for high profile video games to be developed using the MCU. What is a surprise to us is that Square Enix, Eidos Montreal, and Crystal Dynamics are all involved which are rather high profile developers with long, successful resumes. This is fantastic news for comic fans though it seems we will have to wait a while before we begin to see the fruits of this deal.
