A new Marvel-based action-RPG mobile game is in the works the 20th Century-Fox owned Aftershock game studio.
“Aftershock is creating something special and we are thrilled to finally announce this news,” said Jay Ong, Marvel's Senior VP of Games and Innovation. “The game will be the full package: an exciting storyline, epic moments with Marvel super heroes and super villains, and incredible visuals that truly bring our characters to life. It’s shaping up to be one of our biggest and boldest projects in our mobile portfolio, and we know it will exceed our fans’ expectations.”
Aftershock, which is owned by Fox under its FoxNext Games subsidiary, launched in 2016 with the announcement of a mobile game based on James Cameron's Avatar franchise.
