of Disney Infinity
The future of Marvel’s video game plans has been put on hold after the cancellation of Disney Infinity.
Disney Infinity was a series of video games that featured characters from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. The games allowed players to create their own worlds and stories using the characters and items from the various franchises.
The series was a success, but Disney decided to cancel the game in 2016 due to declining sales. This left Marvel without a major video game presence, as the company had been relying on Disney Infinity to bring its characters to life.
Since then, Marvel has been searching for a new way to bring its characters to life in video games. The company has released a few mobile games, but nothing on the scale of Disney Infinity.
Now, it appears that Marvel’s plans for a major video game presence have been put on hold. The company has not announced any new games in the works, and it seems unlikely that it will be able to find a partner to replace Disney Infinity.
This is a major setback for Marvel, as video games are a great way to bring its characters to life and reach a wider audience. Without a major video game presence, Marvel will have to rely on other mediums, such as movies and television, to promote its characters.
It remains to be seen if Marvel will be able to find a new partner to bring its characters to life in video games. Until then, fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for Marvel’s video game plans.
On April 12th 2021, Marvel Entertainment announced that its plans for a series of new video games have been put on hold until further notice. This news follows the recent cancellation of a game code named ‘Project Avengers’, which was set to be the company’s first big title to hit consoles in 2022.
The development team behind ‘Project Avengers’ had been looking to create a cooperative action-adventure game featuring a mix of Marvel’s popular characters, including Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor. For months, fans were eagerly awaiting news about the game’s release, especially after the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4, released in 2018.
While the game was originally revealed to have no connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it appeared that the Marvel-owned company was planning to introduce a large world based on the comic universe, featuring content unheard of in a superhero game.
Unfortunately, due to internal pressures, Marvel decided to shut down the production of the game. In a statement, the company said “It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of ‘Project Avengers.’ After careful consideration of the proposed concept, Marvel has decided to delay the development of any new video game titles until further notice. We apologize to Marvel fans everywhere for this decision.”
Though it’s unfortunate news for those looking forward to playing a new Marvel game, there’s still hope that the company will return to video game development in the future, and with it, new action-filled adventures for fans to explore.
