Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics has announced fifteen new team members, including veterans from Naughty Dog and EA’s now defunkt Visceral Games, to work on their upcoming Marvel’s The Avengers project.
Their AAA experience adds to an already deep roster, making us well-positioned to deliver on the ambitious goals we’ve set for ourselves with The Avengers project
“Their AAA experience adds to an already deep roster, making us well-positioned to deliver on the ambitious goals we’ve set for ourselves with The Avengers project.” adds Ron Rosenberg, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “It’s a stellar addition of people who fit incredibly well into our wheelhouse of building game experiences we love.”
The project, the first from a video game tie up between the studio and Marvel, is expected to be an online third-person action adventure title, but no doubt there’ll be more meat on the bones on that by E3 time in the summer.
