Square Enix announced The Avengers Project last year, a new game based around the Marvel IP which involves action oriented gameplay. Little is known about the project but Square Enix have just announced that the Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal headed title has just gained a Creative Director in the form of former Uncharted director Shaun Escayg as well as a Director of Production in former Dead Space Producer Stephen Barry.
While few details have been announced, some sense of the game’s direction can be gleaned from a job listing which pointed towards it following a game’s as service model and that it would likely feature online multiplayer functionality along with third-person gameplay. We don’t even know which platforms the game will come to but it is very likely that we will get a few more details at this year’s E3, here’s hoping.
Shaun Escayg worked on The Last of Us as well as Director of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. You can read our review of The Lost Legacy here, we thought it was bloody brilliant FYI. Check out the reveal trailer for The Avengers Project below.
