Despite having gone from relative obscurity to one of the most well-known superhero teams in the world in the last decade, the Guardians Of The Galaxy have yet to star in their own AAA video game.
Sure, there was the excellent adaptation from Telltale Games, which is definitely well worth checking out by the way. The likes of Star Lord, Rocket, Groot, and Gamora also had major roles in recent titles like Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. But those of us craving a proper action adventure game featuring the loveable rogues have been left disappointed. Until now, it seems.
Speaking of Marvel, take a look at some of the best Spider-Man games below. Unlike the Guardians, Spidey has been absolutely spoiled over the years.
In the latest episode of Game Mess, VentureBeat reporter and reliable industry insider Jeff Grubb touched on the rumoured Square Enix leaks. For those that might not have heard, a major publisher's entire E3 presentation has leaked ahead of the expo. While full details have yet to make their way online, those who are privy to what's going on believe Square Enix is the victim of the leak, and that it won't be long before much of what the publisher had planned to announce at E3 is available for all to see.
It seems one of Square's big surprises is an adaptation of Guardians Of The Galaxy. "Guardians of the Galaxy is gonna be made by Square Enix... yeah, that's real. That's real," Grubb said. You can hear his remark at the 9.28 mark of this video.
It's worth noting that Grubb tends to be very careful about getting people too excited when it comes to leaks and rumours, and typically makes it very clear when he's unsure of his source or if what he's heard is pure speculation. In this instance, however, he seems to be unequivocally stating that Square is working on Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Grubb didn't have any further details to share about the project, so it remains to be seen what kind of game this Guardians adventure will be. There's a chance it may be similar in style to Marvel's Avengers, or at least connected to the divisive 2020 game given Square's involvement. For now we'll have to wait and see, and hope we get some answers at E3 next month.
