In a whirlwind of twenty-four hours, Marvel fans went from believing we were going to get a Blade game to being disappointed after Ubisoft’s release and rumors were dismissed. Some fans are grateful, due to Ubisoft’s cookie-cutter development of their open-world games, others are disappointed, because the promise of running like the sliced and diced Daywalker vampires was always a fun possibility. .

There seems to be an almost constant rumor around several new Marvel games in development. The blade is just the last. We recently learned that Black Panther is in development at EA, although that’s as far as details go, with nothing else known at this time. It joins the long list of games in development, with Insomniac Games developing both Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine, which are slated for release next year and 2024 respectively.
More is known about the Spider-Man sequel, which follows the frankly amazing Spider-Man, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. With a short trailer released earlier this year, we know the villain, or at least one of them, is Venom. What’s interesting about this is the fact that at the end of Insomniac’s first Spider-Man game, it was heavily hinted that Harry Osborne, once believed to be dead, was actually being kept alive in a sort of chamber by his father, surrounded by black tendrils. , à la Venom.
Virtually nothing is known about Wolverine, other than the fact that we’ll be playing the incredibly angry and short superhero. When it’s set, who the villains are and whether or not it’s Expanded Universe connected to Spider-Man remains to be seen.
With the incredibly poor reactions to The Avengers and the fantastic reviews and reactions to Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel games have been mixed lately, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens with future releases.

First there was Blade, then there was none
The rumors started yesterday after two motion capture actors shared some interesting snaps of them working backstage on a set, wearing mo-caps and wielding katanas. The most eagle-eyed fans noticed that on the clacker, Marvel and the director of the next Blade the B. Fariq film was dropped.

Fans went into a frenzy assuming the cast had dropped the ball and accidentally announced that a new Blade game was in development. While that would make sense with the next Blade movie slated for release next year, it would come as a surprise because the Marvel Cinematic Universe hasn’t had a direct video game connection since the first phase, and they weren’t exactly AAA games either.
Sorry to sever the rumours, we don’t make Blade games but we can’t wait to see what our friends from @MarvelStudios preparing for next year’s film!

For now, it looks like it’s the two actors who were just toying with the fans, or maybe it’s all true and Ubisoft is trying to maintain some kind of damage control for a game that was announced much earlier than it wouldn’t seem so. Either way, if there’s a game in development and Ubisoft is lying, we’ll wait a while to find out, and if there isn’t a game in development, fans will be left wanting more. and wonder what could have been.
