Former Blizzard Devs Working on New Marvel Game

New Marvel Game in Development from Ex Hearthstone Leads

Former Hearthstone developers are working on a new Marvel game

Second Dinner, the new independent video game studio founded by former "Hearthstone" developers Ben Brode and Hamilton Chu, is working on a new project with Marvel, it announced on Thursday.

Second Dinner is also looking to hire a client engineer and a technical artist for their upcoming venture. 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".

Another couple confirmed details from the announcement video: the game is being built on the Unity engine (same as Hearthstone) and it will use Amazon Web Services. Since then, their team has been busy prototyping a new game. Considering the team's previous experience working on the collectible online card game Hearthstone, and its current small size, it's possible the game could be mobile or PC-centric.

Art director Jomaro Kindred revealed that the source material will be familiar for many as the announcement video quickly turned into a recruitment drive: "We are super excited to be working on a Marvel game. Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible.or Mighty...or quite possibly all of the above!"

Details are now scarce, but Chu brazenly insists that "In all likelihood, this will be the best [Marvel] game ever made". Second Dinner is still expanding, but it already has a prototype and playtesting going on for whatever the game will be.

Brode Announced he was leaving Blizzard in April 2018 to start a new studio, saying "After 15 years at Blizzard and nearly 10 years working on Hearthstone, I have made the incredibly hard decision to embark on a new journey".

Some stories have suggested that Barça circumvented transfer rules and approached Rabiot directly, offering him a five-year deal. Despite the statement, Rabiot seems destined to leave PSG where he has alienated the club's fans with his behaviour.

"I've worked with Hamilton and Ben for years, and they are exactly who we want making Marvel games", said Jay Ong, EVP and head of Marvel Games at Marvel Entertainment, in a canned statement.
