Insomniac Games made some waves earlier this summer when they announced that they were hiring 5 positions for an unannounced multiplayer project.
The rumor mill was quick to connect it to a future Marvel project and why not? Insomniac and Marvel have shared a rather fruitful relationship so far, seeing as how Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales should pass 30 million copies sold (combined) sooner rather than later on the PS4 & PS5.
The fine Brahs over at XboxEra have dropped many PlayStation rumors this year. Nick Baker mentioned during episode 76 of the XboxEra podcast that a Marvel multiplayer project was in the work, speculating that Insomniac Games could be the devs.
Jump ahead 7 episodes and Nick now has permission to talk more about it in episode 83. Nick is back talking about this Marvel multiplayer PlayStation exclusive project. This new project is the ‘Marvel equivalent to DC Universe Online‘, which at one point was a PlayStation console exclusive title.
Now we move ahead two more weeks until yesterday. Dimensional Ink Games, the team comprised of former DCUO devs are working on a Marvel MMORPG. Sony is all about those ‘organic’ relationships. Could this be the title that Nick has been talking about or are we going crazy?
It’s a ‘longer-term’ project so even if it happens to be the PlayStation exclusive, it could be awhile before we hear about it. Sony just revealed Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine at the most recent PlayStation Showcase, I’m sure they don’t want to take any of the heat away from those two major exclusives.
What do you think, Brah? Are we looking to closely or could we be on to something? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
