Marvel is waiting for the right conditions to develop a future AAA The Avengers video game.
Marvel’s head of games TQ Jefferson said the following to IGN:
The Avengers game will come when we have the right partner, that has the right vision, that has the time to develop a strong, competitive triple-A title and wants to do it right. It has to hit our three pillars: Fun and engaging gameplay, true to the characters, compelling story. Without hitting those notes, we shouldn’t do it. Gamers, they know better. They’re not going to flock to something that’s sub-par
Jefferson even commented how lackluster the Thor and Captain America games were in the past. Going forward, he’d like to release The Avengers video game that will actually be good.
THQ were working on The Avengers, but the game got cancelled due to the studio closing. It would be cool if they managed to release a game in time for The Avengers: Age of Ultron due out next year.
