Well if it's true I hope marvel will sign up with Rockstar or Ubisoft.Finally get a good action adventure solo game going been a while.

"Injustice gods among us" was ten times better than this game....

I hope this means we'll finally get Ultimate alliance 3
TelaVizion - 12/15/2013, 2:05 AM
Ooooo, a Marvel game with the looks of Assassin's Creed would be great.

I loved lego marvel. Superheros... They need an open world fully destructible game, like spider man 2 or hulk ultimate destruction but bigger with a lot of famous heroes and villains.. Like. An RPG but better... With next Gen graphics... Make it happen!

just an assumption ... but ... Disney=KingdomHearts=SquareEnix(Eidos)

I think Eidos is in consideration for replacing Capcom

anyway ... you can call it a wild guess.

Something only Jerry's mind could thought about ...

but if my theory is true then ...

Jerry=Disney ? WTF ?

@SageMode: Don't let your blind hate for DC get in the way of Objectivity. Injustice is clearly the winner here. DEAL WITH IT.

That said, i really don't think a Fighting game would be appropriate at this stage. Neither would a First-Person game, as was the plan with the movie tie-in. How about revisiting the classic formula of Marvel:Ultimate Alliance? That would be fun.

Would not be suprised because if you did not know Capcom is going under. They can't even afford to make a new next gen Street Fighter. And on top of that Dead rising 3 did not help them as much as they wanted to. This is actually one step closer to a possible Marvel v DC game. And to the people comparing MvC 3 to Injustice, you can not compare then at all because of the fact that their fighting mechanics are so different from one another. Just watch the next EVO, each game attracts a totally different crowd.
TonyChu - 12/15/2013, 4:01 AM
I will say that MvC 2 was way better that the third installment and continues to be my favorite fighting game and one of my favorite games in general.
TonyChu - 12/15/2013, 4:23 AM
Activision has the rights to Spider-Man. Ubisoft is not getting any Marvel rights. More than likely like Jerry is saying is that the license will go to some where like Disney Interactive due to Disney buying Marvel. Also video game rights are not as black and white as movie rights so Marvel could indeed let other studios work on their games.
TelaVizion - 12/15/2013, 4:36 AM
@Tony, of course MvC2 was better. Capcom downgraded when they made the 3rd one. It had better graphics, but didn't compete with the glory of MvC2

@Jerry, that seems like a likely choice. Square Enix would do justice to a Marvel game. Whether it be fighting or RPG/Action
TelaVizion - 12/15/2013, 4:37 AM
And I wouldn't mind a Ultimate Destruction type game with Thor or one of the other heavy hitters of Marvel.

We also need another game like X-Men Origins. One of the top Comic Book (movie tie-in) video games ever created.
yonny616 - 12/15/2013, 7:20 AM
@Sage Injustice trums UMvC3. It's the general agreement among gamers. Deal with it.

@TonyChu If you're telling me I didn't know they were going under then you're wrong. Pretty much every Japanese developer had a really bad time this past 7th generation. The reason Crapcom can't get money is because they have no clue what they're doing anymore with countless SF:IV remakes, HORRID Resident Evil games, and always screwing the consumer over with locked-in-disc DLC which you have to buy. Also WB did the Lego Marvel game so one step more!
WhiteBolt - 12/15/2013, 8:53 AM
I actually liked MvC3. Can we get a sequel to MK already?
KeefNCookies - 12/15/2013, 8:58 AM
Injustice is one of the ugliest fighters I've ever seen. The pure DC is good (wish Marvel was just vs Marvel) but there is no way I'd take Netherrealms over Capcom. I love MK and SF the same, but with MvC I actually feel like I'm playing as the Marvel characters whereas Injustice everybody feels clunky and awkward and not at the least how I see the DC characters moving and acting. The biggest gripe I have with Capcom is the overpriced DLC/weak "expansion." Straight robbery.
BlackIceJoe - 12/15/2013, 10:44 AM
If so I hope Capcom works with WB to make a DC vs Capcom game. I was not the biggest fan of Injustice Gods among us. So I would like to see what Capcom could do with a DC fighting game.
unknownfacts - 12/15/2013, 10:47 AM
I forgot about Eidos might explain why they were absent in Arkham City's development.Well if it's Eidos I'm fairly certain that the games produce will be good.I just think Ubisoft and Rockstar would be better due to them being the developers behind Assassin's Creed and InFamous.Two well made games series rivaling even Rocksteady's Batman Arkham series.
yonny616 - 12/15/2013, 10:56 AM
@BlackIceJoe No. Never. Capcom would make like 15 characters available then give you the rest on DLC the day the game releases.

@Uknownfacts Ubisoft, nor Rockstar, make inFamous. That's Sucker Punch. If Sucker Punch did a Marvel game, or any game for that matter, it'd be exclusive to PlayStation.

Please give us a Incredible Hulk ultimate destruction 2. And a gaurdian of the galaxy game.
Growup - 12/16/2013, 12:13 PM
