Marvel's Avengers future uncertain in Embracer

Marvel’s Avengers future uncertain in Embracer

the news that Embracer Group has reached an agreement with Square Enix The acquisition of Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montréal, Square Enix Montréal and a large number of IPs was announced the day before yesterday. Much has been said and written about it, but it also leaves the future of a number of games uncertain, including Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers.

The company had already indicated that IP addresses such as Tomb Raider, Thief, Deus Ex and Legacy of Kain were included in the deal. The deletion of Marvel’s Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has raised some questions from investors. Then Lars Wingfors, CEO of Embracer, said the company first needed permission from a number of external partners.

This includes Marvel, of course, so Embracer can’t yet confirm whether Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy are included in the deal. So Marvel is of course also required for further development and support of the games.

“All games developed by the studios are included in the transaction. However, a number of external approvals from external partners are required to close this transaction, and licensors, as I mention here, are likely to be one of those required approvals.

I do not expect any significant commercial agreement relating to the studios or this transaction to be rejected by the regulatory parties or commercial partners; However, it remains to be seen. I think your question was about the two games that exist and whether they’d be run, built on, and changed from the current plans today from now on. And I think that’s the color I can give you in this.”

Wingefors also states that it will take some time before the overall picture becomes fully clear. This clarity is expected to be around the conclusion of the deal between July and September. Until then, the fate of the Marvel Games remains uncertain, and this may also be the reason why Crystal Dynamics will survive. No roadmap released for future content.
