Uncharted co-creator Amy Hennig has walked a moderately tough and winding street since leaving Naughty Canine in 2014 amidst rumors of behind-the-scenes energy performs. She joined Visceral Video games to work on a brand new Uncharted-like Star Wars title, codenamed Ragtag, however that sport (and Visceral Video games itself) had been finally canned. Following her departure from EA, there was discuss of her establishing an indie studio, however it will later come out that she was heading up a brand new online game department of Hollywood film studio Skydance Media. It was hinted Hennig could be engaged on a sport based mostly on an present IP, however we didn’t know which one precisely – till now.
Right now it was introduced that Skydance Media and Amy Hennig are growing a “narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure game” set in the Marvel Universe. It’s unknown what nook of the Marvel Universe the sport will happen in, however it’ll apparently function a “fully authentic story.” Whether or not which means a brand new story for present characters, or maybe fully authentic characters, stays to be seen. Off the highest of my head, I might see the Heroes for Rent or possibly even Unbelievable 4 matching Hennig’s model. Right here’s what she needed to say about attending to dabble within the Marvel Universe…
I can’t think about a greater companion than Marvel for our first sport. The Marvel Universe epitomizes all of the motion, thriller and thrills of the pulp journey style that I am keen on and lends itself completely to an interactive expertise. It’s an honor to have the ability to inform an authentic story with all of the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to allow our gamers to embody these heroes that they love.
No matter Skydance’s Marvel sport finally ends up being, it seems like will probably be pretty bold. The sport is being made with a staff of AAA veterans in addition to “inventive consultants from the worlds of movie, tv, and comics.”
No phrase but about when Skydance’s Marvel title may arrive, but it surely sounds prefer it’s pretty early within the inventive course of. What do you assume? Thrilling about Hennig making a Marvel sport? What character or property do you assume she ought to deal with?
