An Upcoming Marvel Game Has Been Cancelled

An Upcoming Marvel Game Has Been Cancelled

That's not very Marvelous

A promising-sounding in-development Marvel video game has been cancelled, just six months after it was originally revealed.

The untitled Marvel MMO was first announced back in November 2021 by the co-publisher of the popular DC Universe Online.

Little is known about what the game might have been, but we can assume it would have been an MMO similar in tone and to DC Universe Online, which would've been a huge win for Marvel fans. Development was being led by City of Heroes designer Jack Emmert at Daybreak Studios. 

Unfortunately, parent company Enad Global 7 (EG7) has now announced in a blog post (via GamesRadar) that the game has been cancelled after a "re-evaluation of the development risk profile, size of investment, and the long-term product portfolio strategy for the group."

In other words, the MMO was proving too expensive to make and no longer worth the risk. Even worse, previous reports suggest that this isn't actually the first Marvel MMO that has been cancelled at Daybreak. The team had allegedly been working on a first attempt several years ago, before studio layoffs in 2018 effectively put an end to the project.

EG7's focus (and money) will now be focused on "multiple, smaller size projects" including continued support for games like The Lord of the Rings Online and DC Universe Online, as well as "new game opportunities" based on new IPs. It remains to be seen if it will attempt a smaller-scale Marvel project, or if it's moved on from that universe entirely.
