Marvel does not plan to emulate the MCU with its games.


Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny that the MCU is very popular with mainstream audiences. Marvel’s giant multiple universes have made superhero culture more relevant than ever, so it’s a little surprising that the company apparently has no current plans to emulate the MCU with its video game offerings.


In an interview with gamesindustry.biz (thanks to ComicBook), Marvel Games Vice President Bill Rosemann clarified that games from EA, Insomniac, and other developers won’t have a common world because he wants developers not to be held back by the limitations of having events that take place in the same world. Instead, Rosemann wants to give developers the freedom to tell their own stories.

“The world is, amazingly, very familiar and accepting of the multiverse,” Rosman says. “We have all these different facts. Now it’s all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their story. We don’t want to say ‘You can’t blow the moon,’ because this game here is from another studio that needs the moon.” We want to give everyone the freedom and the clear path to tell their story.”

We’ve had a slew of excellent Marvel titles in recent years including Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, with plenty more on the horizon as well. Insomniac has a Spider-Man sequel in the works as well as a Wolverine title. EA Motive is officially working on a single-player Iron Man title and rumored to be working on Black Panther, while Amy Henning and Skydance Media are working on the Captain America/Black Panther title.

According to Rosemann, these titles won’t be tied together, but there’s always the possibility that a developer who gets multiple Marvel licenses might choose to cross the heroes if the stories they create allow it. Just don’t expect an EA version of Iron Man to appear in the same game as Insomniac’s Wolverine, no matter how cool that sounds.
