Most people will be surprised to hear that the blockbuster hit The Avengers very nearly had its very own video game. The first-person, co-op game was scrapped by Marvel and developer THQ in 2011. With ample lead time before its release, it’s a very big surprise that the game never surfaced.
THQ Australia had been working on the ‘Avengers’ game for Xbox, PS3 and PC for 18 months when the studio was shut down. The reason was primarily financial and had little-to-nothing to do with the content of the game itself. Unlike other movie-to-game attempts, this one looks half decent.
But there is good news… Marvel has picked up a new domain, avengersbattleforearth.com (Whois) and have parked it on an Ubisoft server!
