The Avengers movie came out in 2012, but sadly we never received a proper console/PC video game based on the popular Marvel franchise. The only games that were released have been free to play ones or titles released on Android and iOS.
A new job listing from the Crystal Dynamics website has given us some hints on what The Avengers video game might entail. Well there will be some single player mode in the game which is good news considering many games released these days are “online focused”. You can read some of the job description details below.
Join now as a Senior Single Player Producer on the latest major AAA game from the studio behind the award winning Tomb Raider franchise being built in our Redwood City studio, just south of San Francisco. Benefits for this full-time position include competitive salary, health insurance options to suit all lifestyles, generous paid time-off, as well as other studio and corporate perks, including a free 50,000’ foot athletic club, a campus by the Bay, and discounts on all of Square-Enix’s games and goodies.
Crystal Dynamics is looking for a talented, enthusiastic, and highly organized Senior Producer with demonstrable project management experience to take on a major production role in building our Avengers gameplay experience. We are looking for an individual with outstanding communication skills and a proven track record in Development and Production. A successful Senior Producer will work in support of the Executive Producer to coordinate, track, and guide activities of other Producers, Associate Producers and a full development staff to ensure that projects are completed on time and with high quality. Exposure to formal project management techniques in an internal development environment a must; previous experience building and maintaining schedules is essential”.
That said, The Avengers video game is its own story and will not be related to the current MCU film franchise. Marvel plans to keeps its video games and movies separate as uniting everything under one umbrella would be too complicated given how hectic game development schedules can be thanks to delays and more.
Anyway, it’s good news that The Avengers video game will have a focus on single player gameplay. Hopefully the single player mode is meaningful and isn’t too online focused like Destiny and The Division.
