Despite the fact that Marvel video games have built a cult following over the years, Square Enix's Avengers video game which hit stores last year failed to hit the mark with fans and critics and it could easily be named the worst Marvel game in recent memory which is a damn shame considering how hot the Earth's Mightiest Heroes property is. Despite the game falling flat on its face, the developers are still eager to expand on their Marvel gaming universe and according to a new insider report, a new title is actually on its way.
According to Jeff Grubb of the Game Mess podcast, Square Enix is already developing a Guardians of the Galaxy video game title. Key details about the project are still unavailable as of now but it's safe to assume that the game will most definitely take place within the Avengers universe. "Guardians of the Galaxy is gonna be made by Square Enix... yeah, that's real. That's real."
Of course, until it's all officially confirmed, take this one with a huge grain of salt. However, it's worth noting that Grubb has had a good reputation for being reliable when it comes to video game news and leaks. As exciting as it sounds, I firmly believe that Square Enix still needs to fix a lot of issues with their Avengers game before even attempting to work on a new one but that's just me.
Marvel's Avengers is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Google Stadia, and Microsoft Windows.
