Skydance New Media and Amy Hennig, the creative director on the first three Uncharted games, announced today that they are working on a new narrative-focused Marvel action-adventure game featuring an original storyline.Advertisement In a press release posted today, Skydance New Media, Skydance Media, Amy Hennig , and Marvel Games shared a bunch of buzzwords about the newly announced Marvel project.The press release was light on actual details about the game , like when it will be released or what platforms it will launch on, but it did include the word “interactive” seven times.This is the first game from Skydance New Media and Hennig.She joined Skydance in 2019 to help create a AAA games studio within the established Skydance film and TV production company.
“I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game,” said Hennig, the president of Skydance New Media.“The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery, and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience.It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.”
According to Skydance New Media, the studio has assembled an “accomplished crew of developers with decades of AAA experience in action and adventure gaming.” The new Marvel game they are working on will most likely be released on consoles and PC as well as “ emerging streaming services ”.

News DISCUSSION By Gene Jacket There’s a rumor going around from a leak a while back stating it’s a Daredevil game.
That same leak also revealed Insomniac’s Wolverine game well before it was announced, though we didn’t know it was Insomniac at the time.So, there’s a tiny shred of validity.
That said, that leak also had some details about the project that seem credible enough, fairly obvious as they are for a Daredevil game, but also noted that it takes place in Chicago…which, to me, essentially invalidates it all.
DD is one of my all-time favorite Marvel characters, I think I may have read more DD books than anyone outside of Spidey, so I hope to Christ that we actually are getting a big AAA Daredevil game, but taking the Devil out of Hell’s Kitchen for his first solo (er, second, after the not completely awful GBA movie-tie-in game ) virtual adventure not only seems like a terrible idea, but something Marvel wouldn’t allow.
I suppose a case could be made that Spider-Man has NY covered, since ALL of Hell’s Kitchen is in both Spider-Man and Miles Morales, as they share the same map…but, I just can’t imagine not spending some time in the Kitchen in a Daredevil game.Hennig is a much better writer than me, so maybe she has a banger of an idea that takes Matt somewhere else, but until it’s confirmed I’m taking it all with a massive block of salt.
