During DICE 2017, Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann opened up a bit about the direction that upcoming Marvel games will take.
Speaking to IGN at the event, Rosemann stated: “We want to give [developers] freedom to tell their story and we want to make it an original story… We want to give our partners…freedom to look at all of Marvel history and to pick from what interests them. It’s a bit like we’re saying, ‘Hey you’re the chef, you’re going to make this meal. Here’s all of the ingredients. You pick the ingredients that you like and make a new meal.”
Rosemann wanted to make it clear that the most important part of these new collaborations is creativity, and that the developers are in the driver’s seat:
“We want all of our games to tell an original, all new story… We want [our development partners] to have passion, we want them to put their stamp on the games. It’s their game. We want it to be their vision.”
Finally, in what will most likely be a huge relief to gamers everywhere, Rosemann assured IGN that they are not simply looking for a “cash-grab”:
“We’re not going to rush things, we’re not going to get things out before they’re done… We’re also not going to try to do the very tricky balancing act of trying to make a game that adapts a movie and get it out in the same window as the movie.. We want every game to be game of the year… So we’re focusing on each game at a time. We know there are certain characters people are really hungry for, [but] right now we’re just going to focus on getting those right.”
This certainly answers a few questions. Above all, this confirms that the upcoming Avengers Project is not beholden to the current films. In case you missed it, we recently speculated as to what the game could possibly be like.
