Marvel Games has brought many projects over the last few years and still has new adventures to come in the near future. But Bill Rosemann, the company’s creative director, made it clear that each of the games will have its own universe, unlike the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As we’ve seen in the last two Avengers movies (Infinity War and Endgame), the MCU has promoted a giant crossover with connected stories. In Spider-Man: No Return Home (this one from Sony, but connected to the MCU), the multiverse was the main theme and brought together several generations of the long ones.
Rosemann does not see this possibility in a good light for video games because it could take away the creative freedom of studios in the production of titles. In an interview with GameIndustry.biz, the Marvel Games rep said the following:
The world is incredibly familiar and accepting of the multiverse. We have all these different realities. Now they’re all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their stories. We don’t mean “you can’t blow up the moon because this game from another studio needs it”. We want everyone to have the freedom and space to tell their stories.
For PS5, for example, we have Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine in production — both from Insomniac. Others already announced were the Skydance project where Captain America and Black Panther will share the spotlight, and the Iron Man game, with the EA Motive label.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns and other works with the Marvel Games seal are on the way. At the end of the day, apparently the company knows what it does with its products. Imagine what it would be like to manage all these narratives to share the same universe.
Marvel Games will ‘do everything’ to help with the production of EA’s Iron Man
EA Motive and Marvel Games work on the Iron Man game, and fans can look forward to a high-quality experience ahead. According to Rosemann, the studio will have all the support it needs. Find out more here!
