In January, Marvel and Square Enix announced a multi-year, multi-game partnership, with the first project being an Avengers title. Not many details of the game were revealed at the time, but the game has been quietly gestating. The upcoming game will feature shared online play, and will resemble a "3rd person cover based action adventure game."

These details come via job postings from Square-Enix subsidiary Crystal Dynamics. One posting is looking for a "Lead Level Designer" position. The posting refers to "fun and unique online experiences" and also asks for an understanding of "the social implicatons of shared gameplay" and "various game modes and campaigns". The other posting is seeking an experienced Combat Designer, who will work with the rest of the team to "plan, prototype and build combat systems that directly apply to a 3rd person cover based action adventure game."

No release date or platform has been announced, but expect the game in 2018.
