Disney Possibly Making Multiple Marvel Video Games, According To Job Listing

Disney may be developing a number of new titles based on Marvel Comics worlds and characters, so colour us intrigued.

Honestly, if Marvel Games wanted to park itself for a year or two, that would be understandable. In 2020 alone, we got Marvel's Iron Man VR, Marvel's Avengers, and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. In spite of delays due to the pandemic, Marvel's Iron Man VR triumphed and scored a nomination for Best VR/AR at The Game Awards. And, heaps and heaps of praise was piled upon Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and more than 4 million copies had been sold only one month after its launch.

Alas. One of these is not like the others. From Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, Marvel's Avengers did not resonate with the Marvel Comics community, which was a shame seeing as Dean loved the characterisation of Ms. Marvel. A buggy launch complicated matters, and players felt like there wasn't enough to do in the base game. Then, there was the news that Marvel's Avengers was a flop for Square Enix, leading it to lose $63 million in that specific fiscal quarter. Yikes. As aforementioned, with such swings and misses, Marvel Games might have taken a load off, brewed themselves a mug of tea, and carefully considered the future of Marvel Comics in interactive media.

It appears that it is very much not of that mind. On the Disney Careers website, there's an opening for a director of product development at Marvel Games. "Have you dreamed of joining an expert team that will bring the full might and rich mythology of legendary Marvel characters to help creators make exceptional games?" asks the listing, stating that the director would "oversee multiple exciting new projects with the most-talented game companies in the world." Intriguingly, it reveals that this person must be the "leader, advocate, and influencer for numerous concurrent Marvel games in development and in the marketplace."

The application process is fairly ordinary, requiring a cover letter and a resume, but it also asks that candidates answer a set of questions that include "if you could be any Marvel Super Hero or Villain, who would you choose and why?" Personally, I would choose Sif because I would like a sword. As for those spicy new games in the works, there's a rich and very literal library of heroes and worlds to explore. Drawing inspiration from Warner Bros. Games, why not put us in the boots of a baddie this time? A younger Loki coming to terms with his identity and his powers... and just how much is out there for the taking. A Black Panther game would be awesome too. Or, a Guardians of the Galaxy game where the gang is restoring the universe in order to defeat the Magus with the assistance of Adam. The possibilities are endless, really, so we'll keep you in the loop when we learn more.
