According to the Enad Global 7 Investor Report (via EG), an unannounced Marvel IP-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) is currently in the works with Dimensional Ink Studios currently attached as a developer. Dimensional Ink Studios is best known these days for its work on DC Universe Online, a character-based MMORPG from Marvel Comics rival DC Comics.
Funnily enough, the official Dimensional Ink Studios website is currently promoting the existence of an “unannounced project” right next to an image promoting DC Universe Online. The studio also has positions open for an artist, animator, programmer and combat designer for the said project.
Not much else is known about this Marvel MMORPG, although it has been confirmed that it will be helmed by Jack Emmert, who is currently the head of DC Universe Online.
Considering the scale of MMORPGs, which are so called due to their large scale and number of players, it makes sense to assume that this title will cover a wide range of characters and storylines from several Marvel franchises such as Avengers, Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and even the Fantastic Four and X-Men. Of course, there is always the possibility that this Marvel MMORPG will be more focused and have a singular purpose.
Whatever form this Marvel video game takes, just hopefully it gets more support than the Marvel Heroes Omega online action role-playing game that landed on Xbox consoles literally five months after its very launch. expected in 2017.
