Avengers-Based Video Game ‘Will Come’ – Marvel’s Head of Games

“The Avengers game will come when we have the right partner, that has the right vision, that has the time to develop a strong, competitive triple-A title and wants to do it right,” TQ Jefferson, Marvel’s head of games, told IGN“It has to hit our three pillars: Fun and engaging gameplay, true to the characters, compelling story. Without hitting those notes, we shouldn’t do it. Gamers, they know better. They’re not going to flock to something that’s sub-par…I think the fact that there wasn’t an Avengers game turned out in time for the film is indicative of Marvel’s new attitude and the approach to how we find partners and build games. I think in the heyday of the movie licensed game, these games were popping out all the time and most of them sucked.”

Jefferson noted that the release of the Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor video games played a role in their renewed interest in game licenses, admitting: “We got a bloody nose on both of those….We would rather not have a game than to just sign something to have something out on time.”
