How Marvel stopped worrying about the movie date and make great games instead

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year and a half ago


An anonymous reader writes "Movie tie-in games are usually known for being a bit, well, poor, but Marvel's been trying to change that lately. The Avengers is a case in point: the tie-in game actually launched five months after the film opened at the box office, while another one for Xbox still isn't out. It's all part of a new strategy just to focus on the games, and on mobile too — the company's games VP outlines a plan to use mobile's smaller development times to make apps about much lesser known super heroes. Moon Knight for iPhone, anyone?"
