Back in 2012, Marvel’s The Avengers amazed audiences with its special effects, narrative, and action with over $1 billion in the box office. With the amount of sales and good reception, the movie has received, it’s strange that we haven’t seen a video game adaptation yet.

Now, thanks to IGN, we now know why. TQ Jefferson, Marvel’s lead for games, went on to explain that after the lackluster releases of the Thor and Captain America tie-ins, the studio “got a bloody nose on both of those.” It certainly has been disappointing as DC have been cranking out terrific entries for their brands including the Batman: Arkham and Injustice franchises.

Thankfully, Marvel has changed its attitude towards who will create games from their properties. Jefferson stated to IGN, “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.” When asked about a potential of “The Avengers” as a game, he also mentioned that “it has to hit our three pillars: Fun and engaging gameplay, true to the characters, [and a] compelling story. Without hitting those notes, we shouldn’t do it.” According to Jefferson, Marvel are looking for “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.” 

Hopefully, in the future, the Avengers may assemble on your preferred video game system sometime soon. All we know is that they will be appearing in Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes later this year for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC, and iOS.
