Avengers Project Marks Collaboration Between Marvel and Square Enix

It seems Kingdom Hearts 3 isn't getting a Marvel Universe world.

Square Enix and Marvel announced today a "multi-game partnership" to develop games based on Marvel's Avengers. Little information was given on "The Avengers Project", but the brief teaser trailer showed logos for Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, and it sounds like Crystal Dynamics is taking the lead on this one.

"The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come. More details on The Avengers project and other games will be announced in 2018," said Marvel in a brief synopsis.

"A game based on beloved Marvel heroes, The Avengers project is being crafted by Crystal Dynamics – longtime developers of the award winning Tomb Raider series – in collaboration with lauded Deus Ex developer Eidos-Montréal."

Everyone expected a Marvel Universe world in Kingdom Hearts 3, so this is surprising turn of events.
