New Marvel game in development at Second Dinner

Former Hearthstone Dev Ben Brode Resurfaces with $30M from NetEase & a Deal with Marvel

Second Dinner, a small studio formed by former Blizzard developers, has announced it's working on a new Marvel game.

As with most Marvel projects now in-development details are being kept under wraps, but there are a few signs that potentially clues us in on what kind of game this will be.

Chu and Brode previously worked on Hearthstone as the executive producer and game director, respectively.

Chu said: "In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made".

In other words, you can safely assume this will be a mobile-first game, but there are still plenty of questions to answer, the most important being which Marvel IP it centres around. Hearthstone was a huge success for Blizzard and Second Dinner are assembling a really talented team of developers.

Following the airing of the first two episodes on Thursday, Legend took to Twitter to expound on why he chose to participate. Kelly's former backup singer, Jovante Cunningham , talked about meeting Aaliyah when she was just 12-years-old.

According to Ben Brode, this game has been in development for around six months now and play-testing has begun.

The announcement came along with news that the studio has raised a $30 million minority investment from NetEase, allowing the team to expand beyond its initial five founders and open an office in Irvine, CA. We can't wait to show it to the people who we interview as candidates. Ong added a bit of Marvel hyperbole as well: "They and the team they've assembled at Second Dinner have made some of the greatest games in history".

The only details that the devs have teased in relation to this new Marvel game is that, along with being able to feature Spider-Man, the Avengers, and the X-Men, it also might include the more niche heroes such as Throg, the Mighty Frog of Thunder.

A new announcement for his own company, Second Dinner, soon followed. "We think there's a huge opportunity to make deep, satisfying games that are optimized for mobile, and we're now working on a game that we're really excited about", one of the job ads reads.
