I can’t wait for some decent Marvel games. Seriously, what have they been waiting for? There’s so much money dumped into the movies by Disney and yet there hasn’t been a decent game in a really long time.
I don’t want movie games, I want game games!
At an event in San Francisco today, Marvel discussed the company’s future plans in the video game space, announcing a partnership with Telltale Games.
The first of those games will come to consoles in 2017, Marvel executives said. Marvel did not disclose the name of the game or which properties Telltale might be developing games with.
Marvel’s Peter Phillips, executive vice president and general manager for interactive and digital distribution, and Jay Ong, vice president of games, were joined by Marvel Games creative director Bill Roseman and executive producer Mike Jones to discuss the entertainment giant’s future video games.
According to Roseman, the company’s future Marvel games will strive for authenticity, will feel “exquisite” and “sexy,” and will be celebrated by Marvel fans. Roseman said the games will look “eye-popping,” and feel well-built and hand-crafted.
“Marvel is about storytelling,” Phillips said, saying that the Marvel brand promises heroic, complex and relatable characters.
Telltale Games already works with a number of high profile properties, including The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Minecraft.
