A lot of AAA titles have been announced recently under license from Marvel. Insomniac Games is preparing Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine, EA Motive is making Iron Man, and Skydance New Media, led by Amy Hennig, is working on an action-adventure about Captain America and Black Panther.
Marvel Studios pioneered the creation of the MCU, but in the case of games, there will be no common connection between them.
Marvel Games Vice President and Creative Director Bill Rosemann told GamesIndustry.biz that they do not require developers to create any kind of connected universe, as they want the studios to have the freedom to tell their own stories without influencing other people’s games.
“People, surprisingly, are very familiar with the concept of the multiverse and well accept it. There are many different realities. Each is thought out in its own way, and we want everyone to have the opportunity to tell their story. We don’t want to say: “You can’t blow up the moon, because that game over there needs the moon from another studio. “We want to give everyone the freedom and a clean way to tell their stories.”
At the same time, instead of one large game universe, several mini-universes from different publishers may appear in the future. It has already been confirmed that Spider-Man and Wolverine in Sony games are in the same world, and Electronic Arts, in addition to the Iron Man project, is preparing other Marvel games, the plots of which may also be intertwined.
