    Well, at least some Codexers will be happy to hear that Eidos Montreal isn't going under after all, as that wouldn't be too surprising given the latest DE's middling sales and the utter failure of their Thief reboot before that.

    So what will this be exactly? The press release says jack shit besides confirming they want to milk the license with multiple games. Supposedly there is a story and singleplayer.

    Initially I thought they might do team-based online something but the story bit and iconic moments contradicts that. Unless they go for some kind of objective-based gameplay with maps/scenarios inspired by the franchise.

    If they make an AC-type game, it will be just another example of Marvel copying DC.

    After lack luster Thief 2014 sales and lack luster Deus Ex Mankind Divided sales I guess rather then shut the team down they're going to be working on marvel games now?

    Does this mean the next Tomb Raider isn't being developed by Crystal Dynamics? That might be good.

    Who gives a fuck about diversity?

    Seriously, why make that the very first thing to say?

    Surely having talented staff is more fucking important?

    The only comic book game I'd be interested in at the moment would be a Scud: The Disposable Assassin game made by Platinum Games or some other talented studio.

    It's not going to be as good as Deus Ex, so whatever is gained by this is still a loss.

    I still think a Captain America game could be pretty damn good.

    Like I said in the Spider-Man PS4 thread:

    And the same could be said for Iron Man.
