New Marvel Game Announced by Amy Hennig/Skydance New Media

Back in 2019, award-winning writer and director Amy Hennig joined Hollywood studio Skydance Media in San Francisco alongside Julian Beak, former senior producer at Electronic Arts, to work on narrative-focused interactive experience.

Skydance New Media has been formed earlier this year as a new interactive division and today, it has announced that a brand-new Marvel game is currently being helmed by Hennig, revealing their partnership with Marvel Entertainment.

Skydance is collaborating on "a narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure game", featuring an original story set within Marvel Universe. It is yet to be revealed what Marvel characters are they working on, platforms or a release date.

Amy Hennig was a creative director for Naughty Dog and directed first three Uncharted games before she left PlayStation. She then joined Star Wars game for Electronic Arts-owned Visceral Games to work on a cancelled Project Ragtag.

Amy Hennig stated her excitement of working for Marvel in a recent press release by Skydance New Media.

I can't imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game. The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It's an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.

Also joining Beak and Hennig at Skydance New Media on their upcoming Marvel project is actor Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys, Heroes). He and Hennig previously worked together for two years in cancelled Star Wars: Project Ragtag game.

In recent years, video game adaptations of Marvel Comics' properties are receiving both critical and commercial success on release. Skydance may take some time to announce their first major AAA-project, since it is early in development.
