A Disney senior vice president by the name of Tom the Stagg (minus 'the') has been speaking about what to expect of the recent $4bn purchase of Marvel. He was upstanding at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia XVIII Conference in New York, when he said:
"Over time, on the videogame side there will be opportunities. We've said that, but that doesn't necessarily mean that every videogame that has a Marvel or Disney brand will end up being just produced by us.
I suspect there will be a blend of licence relationships and self-published titles, but at the same time we believe there's an opportunity there just in terms of our drive, driving ourselves to critical mass and having a broader base of properties with which to do that."
So, expect more games from Activision Blizzard (Ultimate Alliance
and a new Spider-Man
), SEGA (Iron Man
) and more.Via GI.biz
