Since the news broke that Square Enix would be working together with Marvel on multiple games there has been speculation about what Marvel properties these games would be based on.
It was revealed that one of the first games to come out of the Square Enix and Marvel partnership would be a new Avengers game that is currently being developed by Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex) and Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider).
Now, according to Eurogamer’s sources, Eidos, might also be working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game. This could be part of the reason why it was announced that the Studio would be placing the Deus Ex franchise on hold for the foreseeable future. After the announcement of the partnership, Kotaku Editor Jason Schreier also tweeted that Eidos was working on the Avengers game and another title based on a Marvel property. Presumably, this “other” title could be a Guardians of the Galaxy game.
So Eidos Montreal is on Shadow of the Tomb Raider and multiple Marvel projects (Avengers and another). Not much room for another series…

Eidos would not be the only studio that is currently working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game as Telltale have also announced that they are working on a game based on the Marvel property. No release date has been confirmed for the Telltale game although it would make sense for it to release around the same time as the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie which would be in May this year.
Although we can’t wait to play the Telltale Guardians of the Galaxy game, we are even more excited to see what Eidos will be doing with this Marvel property.
So, what Marvel characters would you like to see in a Guardians of the Galaxy game?
