It seems we now know what Amy Hennig is planning for her next project together with Skydance Media and it is a new Marvel game.
Together with Insomniac Game’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine, Marvel’s Midnight Suns by Firaxis Games, and the recently released Guardians of the Galaxy by Eidos Montreal, another Marvel game is now in the works. This time it is being developed by Amy Hennig, known for being the writer and director of the Uncharted games at Naughty Dog, and Skydance Media. It is said that this will be a big AAA, story-driving game.
According to media outlet IGN, this is going to be a narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure game with a completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe. No details on which characters will be featured, but it should be one of the popular ones if it is going to be big.
Hennig shared this in a statement:
I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game. The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.
No other details yet have been shared, but if it is going to be Amy Hennig at the helm, this is going to be one awesome game to look out for.
