New Marvel Video Game in Development from Ex-Hearthstone Leads

New Marvel Video Game in Development from Ex-Hearthstone Leads

Until now, it was a mystery where Brode and his team ended up - but new information was revealed by Brode's development studio Second Dinner last night, confirming they'll be working on a Marvel title.

That certainly fits in with what we'd expect from numerous folks behind Hearthstone, and all expectations are now focused on this being a Marvel-licensed card game.

Chu and Brode previously worked on Hearthstone as the executive producer and game director, respectively.

For those of you who don't know your Spider-Man from your Spiderman, I'll point out that Ong's string of adjectives drops heavy hints that Second Dinner's Marvel game will include Aquaman, Swamp Thing, Krypto, and Midnighter.

Another couple confirmed details from the announcement video: the game is being built on the Unity engine (same as Hearthstone) and it will use Amazon Web Services.

Neetu shared a picture on her Instagram account and captioned it as, "When roles are reversed #cycleoflife #gratitude #faith". Alia also has Kalank to look forward to. "And then he came in Saawariya , and I had already seen him", Bhatt said.

Second Dinner aims to "make deep, satisfying games that are optimized for mobile" according to its official site. It has received a $30 million minority investment from Chinese tech company NetEase.

NetEase vice president Ethan Wang said: "The Second Dinner team has a strong track record of delivering quality games". Though the press release doesn't mention what kind of game we can expect, the team is very enthusiastic about their time play testing and the feedback they've been receiving. We can't wait to show it to the people who we interview as candidates. Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible! Both left developer Blizzard Entertainment about eight months ago. Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!'

Second Dinner is also looking to hire a client engineer and a technical artist for their upcoming venture.

"Today, we're excited to announce that we've entered into a new partnership with NetEase to help us explore new directions", reads a Bungie statement on the announcement.
