Marvel promising 'fewer, but higher quality' titles based on its property

Marvel is promising that in future we'll see fewer and higher quality games based on its property.

"Marvel's overall success in film and TV and other lines of business, means that Marvel is now attracting better partners in the gaming space," Marvel's VP of production for games TQ Jefferson told Polygon in a new interview.

"We're talking to people now who have strong vision and great teams that can actually execute, and we're not as concerned with hitting a date [that's tied to a movie] and wanting to hold out for quality and have things go out when we're ready.

"We are looking at smarter, more interconnected experiences, more interconnected narrative. We are evolving how we're approaching our games and how we're building out our [games] universe. What we're also doing now is we're being much more selective and measured in how we approach partnerships. I think in the heyday of the movie licensed game, it was just, 'Let's churn out something, let's do the the smash and grab, get the money and get out' and most of those games sucked, to be perfectly blunt.

"We have to respond by introducing higher quality product. We're pushing more quality now than we ever have in the past and if that means fewer games, that means fewer games. As long as we're hitting a high quality bar and holding ourselves to a higher standard."

How do you feel about higher quality games based on your favourite characters? That's got to be a good thing, right?

I wish they'd do more games based on the comics rather than films, plus they need to stop licencing out their properties, on all media formats, not just games.

I'd love to see a return to Ultimate Alliance. But as Ash said the movie ones generally suck.
