While very little is known about Square Enix’s Avengers title, we do know when the public will finally find out more about this eagerly-anticipated title.
The game, likely called Marvel’s Avengers, will be officially revealed during Square Enix’s E3 press conference, set for June 10 at 6:00 pm Pacific / 9:00 pm Eastern.
The project is under joint development by Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider) and Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex) with the former taking the lead. It was announced in January 2017 that Marvel had signed Square Enix to a multi-year, multi-project development deal, and Marvel’s Avengers is said to be the first in that agreement.
E3 Coliseum, a platform for publishers and developers to sit down and discuss their games, takes place throughout the conference, and is planning to host an interview with “key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games,” according to its website.
In fact, the full excerpt had more information about the game before amending the description to simply read, “Join Crystal Dynamics and Marvel Games for a Panel about Marvel’s The Avengers.”
The original excerpt, captured by PC Gamer, reads:
“Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Moderated by Andrea Rene, assemble in teams up to four players, master extraordinary abilities, customize your heroes to fit your playstyle, and combine powers to defend an ever-expanding world under constant threat.”
We can’t imagine that this game won’t be released this year, given all the Avengers: Endgame hype, Spider-Man: Far From Home hitting theatres in July, and the swath of Marvel properties coming to the big screen over the next few years.
All will be revealed, it seems, on June 10th during Square Enix’s press conference. Until then, check out the teaser that the publisher posted by clicking the video above.
