Forums - Gaming Discussion - After Marvels Spiderman. Where do Marvel games go from here?

They should do it on a game by game basis (like Star Wars should have been done) rather than stick with a specific dev, publisher or platform. That gives more variety and more chances for something good rather than potentially being stuck in a deal with a publisher who's screwing the franchise up (*cough* Star Wars & EA *cough*).

Also, they should totally make a deal with Koei-Tecmo for an X-Men Warriors game.

I'd argue they're already stuck with a Disney who could screw the franchise up, but yeah, this.



I imagine Spidey will stick to Sony. Other properties will almost certainly be multiplatform for at least the PS4/XB1 but might also get some Switch love there as well.



Whatever SE is making, and i don't think it's going to be Single Player focused.

I'm expecting more of a Live Service game

I very much doubt it. This will head to PC and Xbox just like Nier Automata, Hellblade etc. MS won't need to buy any companies either, Insomniac isn't bound and I'm sure Marvel and Disney had the foresight not to get tied up in an extended contract. Even if they did, Sony would let them loose out of good will as they've already gotten all they can benifet from this. 

What? This is a 2nd party game, not a third party game. Have R and C, and Resistance games gone to other platforms?

I mean, Sony didn't publish those games. They were third party.

Sony published Spider-man. It's sticking to PS4 as much as I'd love to play it on my PC.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Easy. Spiderman 2 developed by Insomniac. Published by Sony and released on the ps5 in 2021 or 2022.

Other options are to get Sony to publish either xmen, incredibke hulk, or iron man. I believe sucker punch would be the best candidate. Ps5 title ideally.

Spiderman is a Sony owned game. Like any first party title. It’s not going anywhere Sony doesn’t want it to go.

Welcome back btw. How was the hangover? Lol. 

That's pretty much what they're doing now and one game could fuck up the good will, there is no quality branding in that and it's why games like Iron man or or the countless spidermans before don't do as well as this Spiderman. Having Insomniac and Sony team up is pretty much the only reason this game is the power house it is. If it were made by Koi tecmo even as a carbon copy inch by inch, it wouldn't have sold anymore than the amazing spiderman games. This is the problem I'm bringing up.

Until I wake up with a tiger in my bathroom, all hangovers will be disappointing

I really don't think one game would fuck anything up. Especially not for different characters, eg. a shitty Thor game or something shouldn't affect the next Spider Man game at all. They don't need to build a Marvel brand in gaming, they've already built the brand and now just need the games to go with it.

I also think you're putting too much stock into the Insomniac/Sony names. The game is succesful because Insomniac did a good job making it, it was marketed well and people like Spider Man. People are still going to like Spider Man regardless of who makes the game and any other dev/publisher could do a good job developing/marketing the game as well.
