27 Jul, 2017 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Marvel Entertainment and Aftershock, a FoxNext Games studio, July 27 announced a deal in which Aftershock will develop a new mobile video game based on Marvel content.

The action-RPG game will feature Marvel superheroes and supervillains battling players from around the world in a unique gameplay experience.

Aftershock’s Los Angeles studio has created games for companies such as Blizzard, Riot and EA.

“The game will [feature] an exciting storyline, epic moments with Marvel [characters]. It’s shaping up to be one of our biggest and boldest projects in our mobile portfolio,” Jay Ong, SVP of games and innovation at Marvel, said in a statement.

FoxNext Games recently acquired Aftershock as part a strategy to develop interactive experiences across mobile, console/PC games, virtual and augmented reality, and location-based entertainment.

Pipeline games include a multiplayer mobile strategy game for James Cameron’s "Avatar" franchise.

“To team up with Marvel on our first game at FoxNext Games is a dream partnership,” said Aaron Loeb, president of studios for FoxNext Games.
