Game Awards 2018: Avengers Project – Update 1
At The Game Awards 2018, Joe and Anthony Russo took to the stage to announce the best on-going game.
After making a Thanos-themed joke, the brothers announced that Fortnite was the best-ongoing game for 2018 (and the award was collected by Epic's Donald Mustard).
After what seems to have been weeks of teases and anticipation, Square Enix and the Russos didn't announce the game we know Square Enix is working on.
It leaves players wondering: 'when will Square reveal this game?' Will it come after the Avengers 4 trailer, or is it going to be next year at this point?
We'll have to wait (even longer!) and see.
Stay tuned, as we could hear some news from various members of the games development teams on Friday, no doubt responding to many fans upset at not seeing the game during the Awards Show.
Square Enix seems due to reveal its massive Avengers project tonight at The Game Awards 2018.
The annual show will have the Russo brothers (you know, the guys that directed Avengers: Infinity War!) on-stage – a move that many suspect confirms that we'll see an Avengers 4 trailer, and the first look at the Avengers game.
Last week, The Game Awards account tweeted: "Many great presenters will join us next Thursday night for #TheGameAwards. We're excited to welcome @russo_brothers, directors of Avengers, to #TheGameAwards"
We look forward to seeing what the brothers bring to the show.
Daniel R on Twitter – a source that has correctly predicted when we'd see Captain Marvel and Infinity War trailers – has suggested that we'll see the Avengers project trailer this week.
"Ok now that it's out I CAN tweet about it…" writes Daniel. "Avengers 4 trailer on Wednesday morning. We're so close. Just a little longer."
In a reply, Twitter user Kermit_dafrogYo asked: "Then what's on Thursday at the Game Awards? Is it the Avengers Project?"
Daniel R simply replied: "Yes"
The Avengers Project – What is it?
The Avengers Project, as it is currently known, will feature a "completely original story" and build a "universe gamers could play in for years to come.'
This news will surely please Marvel fans around the world who had already been let down when a previously planned Avengers game was cancelled a few years back.
The Square-Enix announcement read:
"The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come."
