Square Enix had just recently announced its partnership with Marvel to make a game based on "The Avengers," but now there's news coming out that Eidos Montreal will also be working on a game based on another Marvel property, "Guardians of the Galaxy." This, however, means bad news for the Deus Ex sequel.
Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Game
According to Kotaku, Square Enix-owned company Eidos Montreal will be working on two games this year, The Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and the "Guardians of the Galaxy" game. GotG will be the second Marvel title under the Square Enix banner, and it's said to be the second game after "The Avengers." Eidos Montreal will also be working on the "Avengers" game as well.
As for the story of the game, it has been confirmed that Square will be having a "completely original story" for Avengers, so it's possible that Guardians of the Galaxy will also have its own storyline different for the movie. Being one of the biggest Marvel hits back in 2014, a lot of fans are definitely eager to see what kind of game Eidos has under its sleeve for GotG; not to mention, the sequel is set to come out in cinemas this year.
Deus Ex Sequel Delayed
With Eidos working on Guardians, the studio has decided to put a hold on any projects concerning the Deus Ex franchise. According to Eurogamer, the company had decided to shift its focus to the Marvel games after the underwhelming sales numbers of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This, however, doesn't mean that there won't be any more Deus Ex related releases in the future. A DLC called A Criminal Past will be coming out this Feb. 23.
A lot of fans are excited to see where the Square Enix-Marvel partnership is going to go. It's been a while since Marvel has had a good game. Though they may be dominating the box office, Marvel video games still have nothing to say to DC.
No official release date has been announced for Eidos' "Guardians of the Galaxy" game.
