Former Uncharted Director Presents New Marvel Game at D23

Amy Hennig, former creative director of Uncharted, will unveil her highly anticipated Marvel game at D23 in September.

News of the mystery project first hit the public consciousness late last year, when Hennig and the Skydance New Media crew announced a partnership with Marvel Entertainment.

This particular adventure marks the AAA studio’s debut title. Little is known about the game itself at the time of writing.

Of course, this hasn’t stopped the internet from guessing. One of the more popular theories holds that the award-winning writer is embarking on a Fantastic Four adventure.

Fortunately, more concrete details are emerging in less than a month.

Disney teases Amy Hennig’s Marvel game on D23

During the D23 Expo on September 9, the company will broadcast a Disney and Marvel Games Showcase hosted by Blessing Adeoye Jr. from Kinda Funny Games.

The live show begins at 1:00 p.m. PT and will feature new content from Disney & Pixar Games, Marvel Games, Lucasfilm Games, and 20th Century Games.

Those who tune in can also expect new revelations from Marvel’s Midnight Suns, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and Disney Dreamlight Valley.

When announcing the showcase on the D23 website, Disney also promised a “sneak peak” of Skydance New Media’s “Marvel ensemble game.”

Notably, this is the first official mention of the project starring an ensemble. Some would argue that it gives more credence to rumors that Amy Hennig’s Marvel game will revolve around the Fantastic Four.

This ranks as one of many Marvel titles currently in development. Insomniac Games is working hard on, for example, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine.

Meanwhile, Electronic Arts reportedly has a Black Panther game in the works. Another insider recently claimed that EA also has plans to publish an Iron Man starring title.
