Eidos Montreal has confirmed to be taking the creative lead on a new Guardians of the Galaxy video game. The Deus Ex developer is taking on a big project with the amount of popularity that the Guardians of the Galaxy comes with.
At the moment there is not a lot of details released but what we do know is that Square Enix has formed some sort of partnership with Marvel enabling them to create video games from our favorite Marvel franchises. Earlier this year Square Enix announced that they are working on a Avengers based video game titled the Avengers project which will feature some of our favorite Avengers and villains.
While Guardians of the Galaxy will be led by the Eidos Montreal team, the Avengers project will be handled by the Crystal Dynamics team that helped revive the Tomb Raider franchise. With neither of the Marvel games expected to arrive in the next year, fans could have to wait until 2018 or early 2019. E3 2017 is around the corner though so we might see a new trailer on either one of the games. EnixOrigin will keep you updated with the latest news on the development.
In the meantime Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 hits theaters May 5, 2017.
