Cannot wait for The Avengers game definitely going to play it! Also heard Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics working together on a second Marvel/Square Enix game said to focus on the Guardians of the Galaxy! Even more excited!

I'm a big Marvel fan so I'm looking forward to see what you guys are making. Would be nice to know what kind of game you guys are making. I hope the partnership includes X-Men games. Heard that Marvel has been sabotaging mutants because Fox won't sell back the rights to make X-Men movies. Really stupid that they'd bomb one of their flagship series and punish their own fans, but money talks louder I suppose.

You do realize MhkRed that Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal are being put on this project both of which did not work on developing FFXV. The team that made it is Square Enix or more specifically Square Enix's business division 2. Them putting Crystal dynamics and Eidos Montreal on this Avengers Project will not effect FFXV.

Why don't you just focus on making Final Fantasy XV a complete game first? Hmm...

So Marvel/Avengers world in Kingdom Hearts III confirmed then? Surely that must've been part of the deal. ;) I don't care too much for that part of the Marvel universe, honestly. But if we could get a Guardians of the Galaxy world in KH3 that'd be amazing.
