As seen on several news sites, Marvel is reportedly making a game with Amy Hennig’s new studio. It’s been some time since we’ve heard any news from Amy Hennig. Presently, we know what the previous Naughty Canine and Visceral Games writer and creative chief have been working away at since going non-mainstream in 2018.
On Friday, Marvel announced its working with Hennig’s Skydance New Media studio on a new narrative-driven action-adventure game set in its comic book universe. Details on the undertaking are sparse, however, the Disney-claimed company teased the title will feature a “completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe”.

“I can’t imagine a preferred partner over Marvel for our first game,” said Hennig. “The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery, and thrills of the mash adventure kind that I adore and lends itself impeccably to an interactive encounter.
It’s an honor to have the option to recount 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.”

In some ways, it’s a surprise to discover Hennig is dealing with an AAA title. At the point when she left EA after the publisher shut down Visceral, it seemed like she wanted a change of pace.
“I couldn’t want anything more than to have a little company of about six to eight individuals, 15 at the most, and then do smaller projects,” she said at the time. However, at that point, the possibility of working with Marvel may have been too hard to even think about overlooking, especially for a new studio chipping away at its first-ever game.
Similar to how it’s done in Hollywood, the company has started to pull in talent from each side of the gaming industry. Between Eidos Montreal, Firaxis and presently Skydance New Media, some of the best studios are dealing with Marvel properties.
