Marvel’s Blade game reportedly in the works from Ubisoft

Assassin’s Creed developers Ubisoft are reportedly working with Marvel on a Blade game ahead of the characters’ debut in the MCU.

After the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, it’s no surprise that other developers want to replicate its critical reception. With Midnight Suns and Marvel’s Wolverine in the works, it looks like Ubisoft is also partnering with the iconic comic book company.

Blade heads to the MCU in November 2023 and will be part of Phase 5 in Marvel Studio’s ongoing saga.

While it’s unclear if the game will tie in with Mahershala Ali’s turn as the character, Ubisoft is said to be developing a brand new Blade game.

Rumor has it that Ubisoft is working on a Blade game for Marvel

Posted by known leaker @Mr_Rebs_ aka Rebs Gaming on social media, the leaker claimed that “it looks like an actor has revealed that Ubisoft is developing a Blade game.”

Referring to actor Alex Martin, they went on to say, “the actor shared these set shots of a Ubisoft badge, himself wearing a sword prop.”

The post in question also mentions a “clapperboard named “Marvel” and the director of the upcoming Blade movie and gaming hashtags.”

While the clapperboard from Alex’s feed mentions Blade director, Bassam Tariq, it doesn’t necessarily confirm a game is in development. The post has since been removed from Alex’s Instagram feed.

In particular, Tariq could take advantage of Ubisoft’s motion capture technology, in a similar way to Lana Wachowski’s work with Unreal Engine 5 on The Matrix Resurrections.
