Square Enix made waves last year among superhero fans when the fabled gaming company that brought us classics like the Final Fantasy franchise published its first Marvel game, Avengers. Starring the most famous superhero IP on the planet, the game was unfortunately plagued by mixed reactions due to the early technical issues and the lack of endgame content. The game’s developer Crystal Dynamics has since made efforts to remedy some of these issues. But in spite of all the pushback the game has been getting, it seems that that isn’t deterring Square Enix from furthering their own Marvel IP, as gaming insider Jeff Grub is reporting that a Guardians of the Galaxy game is in the works.
There’s no word on what a Guardians game could look like under Square Enix. However, word on street is that Eidos Montreal is the company developing it. We can only hope that they learned from the good and bad that came out of the Avengers rollout and end up with a really solid game. Like the Avengers, there’s so much to mine from that side of Marvel Comics. Even the films have barely scratched the surface of the full potential of Marvel’s cosmic universe. Having a game explore that definitely works on all fronts.
