Fans are speculating that the mysterious project Marvel and Skydance Media are working on is a new Daredevil game.
Marvel and Skydance Are Working on What Might be a Daredevil Game
Marvel is working together with Skydance Media on a, quote, “new narrative-driven” project, leading fans to speculations that a fresh Daredevil game might be in the works. While this is by no means confirmed, it is definitely a curious possibility.
Daredevil has been a largely overlooked Marvel character. The blind keeper of justice is missing from most new MCU movies and hasn’t gotten a game since 2003’s Nintendo Game Boy release. Admittedly, Daredevil has gotten a Netflix show but that’s about all he has gotten in recent times.
Because of how underrated Daredevil seems to be, his fans are hoping that he will finally get his own last-gen game. The partnership between Marvel and Skydance seems like a good opportunity to create such a title. The speculations are further fueled by the fact that in 2020 VA Troy Baker implied he is involved in an unspecified Daredevil project.
What is Known About the New Game
According to a Deadline report, the new game will be an entirely original story. Skydance’s president, Amy Hennig, has revealed that it will be a story focused on “the humanity, complexity and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring.”
Leakers on 4chan imply that the game will take place in Chicago. If the project turns to be indeed focused on Daredevil, this will be a significant change from the dark New York Daredevil fans are familiar with. The game will take place mostly during the night, allowing players to explore the dark side of the city. People believe that the game’s approach will be much similar to the popular Batman Arkham series.
Although not much more has been revealed yet, fans can expect news soon, considering that the mysterious title is set for release in 2022. One of the few things that are known is that the new game will be available for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Superhero games have enjoyed a rise in popularity in recent times. With the advancements in tech and gaming, game developers have been able to create a more engaging action experience than ever. Some of the most recent exciting titles include Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, Marvel’s Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. New games based on the Marvel universe’s X-men and Spider-man are also known to be in the works.
It will be exciting to follow Marvel and Skydance’s project and see if it will indeed play out as people expect it to. Daredevil fans will be happy to get a last-gen game of the blind superhero.
