Marvel Games vice president, Jay Ong, acknowledges that the fans have been calling for another Marvel vs Capcom (Marvel vs Capcom 4?), the crossover fighting game, since Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 was released all the way back in 2011.
However, since Capcom’s license with Marvel expired in 2013, Microsoft and Sony stores have pulled down any Marvel vs Capcom content, including DLC, at the end of that very year. Capcom were unable to update or bring any changes to the games.
In an interview with Polygon, Jay Ong was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the beloved crossover fighting game, or even a patch to balance out the characters.
“There’s nothing we can say at this time. Let’s just say that we hear that a lot. We love our fans and we certainly want to please them. Beyond that we can’t say anything at this time. But who knows what the future holds?”
The response is optimistic, and we already know that Marvel Games are working on ‘epic games’ made in collaboration with ‘world-class talent.’ Ong says Marvel are working on quite a few games – yet to be announced. Those which have been announced include the game being developed Telltale Games, and of course, the newest upcoming Spider-Man set to release for PlayStation 4.
We already know Marvel Games are revolutionising the quality of the titles they want to release, removing any ties to content linked with theatrical releases, and only working on wholly, original content. The upcoming Spider-Man game is already confirmed to be set in a different world from the forthcoming Spider-man: Homecoming film. Perhaps a time will come, when they do decide to bring back the beloved Marvel vs Capcom franchise.
