Marvel games....so hot right now!

November 27, 2021

If Guardians of The Galaxy, Marvel’s Avengers, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and the countless other Marvel games weren’t enough to satisfy that superhero itch, you’ll be pleased to know that a new MMORPG is reportedly in development by Dimensional Ink Games.

Dimensional Ink Games are best known for developing DC Universe Infinite, a free-to-play MMO that was released way back in 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and PC. Although the DC-themed MMO is now 10 years old, it still frequently receives new updates and content and has even been re-released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

But that hasn’t stopped players begging for a sequel or reboot. Well, fans might just be in luck. Unless you’re a diehard DC fan and hate Marvel, then you’re definitely not in luck.
