Marvel and Square Enix have announced on Twitter the long-awaited, previously untitled Avengers Project is to be fully revealed during Square’s E3 press event on June 10th at 6 p.m. PT.
Officially titled Marvel’s Avengers, the project has long been teased by Marvel Entertainment and Square for a few years now, and this is the first time any footage or actual details about the mysterious game will be shown off. Marvel already has few games on their slate this year, including the Switch exclusive Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, but this will be one of the first games in a good while to bear the Avengers official branding. The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, known for the Tomb Raider revival games, and Eidos’ Montreal Studio, of Deus Ex fame.
The event will be live streamed on Square’s E3 site. Square is also expected to show off more footage of the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII remake, and talk about their future as a developer and publisher.
The E3 Expo is the big event for the electronic entertainment industry where everybody gets to see the future of gaming. This year’s is shaping up to especially interesting, with Sony pulling out, opting instead to do Nintendo Direct-like presentations called State of Play to show off their upcoming products. Additionally, the lease for the Expo is up this year, and the ESA has not yet renewed it. Meaning this may be the last physical E3, or the event could move to a new location.
