To overcome, or at least equal, the success of Sony and Insomniac Games with Marvel’s Spider-Man is the objective that has been set in Square Enix with Marvel’s Avengers. So at least it has been declared by Yosuke Matsuda, president of the Japanese company, who is hopeful in being able to do it with one of his most ambitious projects.
” Spider-Man was a huge launch and a great success, so we wanted to work hard to achieve something similar, “the executive explained in a talk with Game Industry.” What I can say is that it has increased my expectations [for Avengers.] I thought we should have more ambitious goals. Spider-Man was great, but we do not want to be outdone, “Matsuda added, stating that they are putting all their efforts into development in order to offer the player” a new experience. ”
And it will not be for lack of resources. According to the declarations of the boss of Square Enix, such is the ambition that from a single study it was not possible to carry out the project, which is why, Crystal Dynamics is counting on the collaboration of Eidos Montreal, Nixxes Software , the recently founded Crystal Northwest and even a small development team at Square Enix Japan.
Marvel’s Avengers is scheduled to launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, as well as later on Stadia, for the next 15th of May. In the project, in addition to the aforementioned groups, he is working very closely with Square Enix Marvel Games.
