DC isn’t the only entity to make a MMO based off its multiple characters. Sure there are reports of a Marvel MMO that was canned in the past, but one failed experiment isn’t enough to stop Marvel from trying again. The Wall Street Journal reports Gazillion Entertainment has entered into an exclusive ten year partnership with Marvel to produce multiple MMO games. The games will give Gazillion access to all our favorite Marvel characters including spin-offs such as the Marvel Superhero Squad, which just so happens to be the first MMO Gazillion will publish.
Apparently this will not affect deals with other publishers such as THQ, who was supposed to have exclusive rights to Marvel Super Hero Squad games on virtually all platforms. The official announcement will be made later today and may shine some light on this situation.
