Unlike the movies and comics, Marvel Games doesn’t plan to create a multiverse among its various titles.


In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Marvel Games Vice President and Creative Director Bill Rosemann explained whether titles like the one recently announced by Motive Studio Iron Man could evolve into a full-fledged multiverse, similar to the ones seen in the comics and movies. Rosemann has denied such plans. He noted that while it’s a concept that many audiences like and respond well to, he felt it would detract from the company’s overall goals.

“The world is, surprisingly, very familiar and accepting of the multiverse,” Rosemann explained. “We have all these different realities. Now they’re all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their story. We don’t want to say, ‘You can’t blow up the moon, because this game is over. here by another studio needs the moon.’ We want to give everyone the freedom and the free way to tell their story.”

A lot of that comes from the sheer number of studios involved in Marvel-based games. PlayStation, Take-Two, Niantic and Skydance New Media all currently have a Marvel project in the works, with developers like Embracer Group supporting current games such as Marvel’s Avengers and guardians of the galaxy. Others, like the resounding success of PlayStation Marvel’s Spidermancontinue to expand with a recently released PC remaster and a highly anticipated sequel slated for 2023. Marvel Games’ new multi-title partnership with EA adds several new games to the mix, further complicating the ability to bridge the various universes.
