Formerly known as Daybreak Game Company, Dimensional Ink Studios is working on a “large-scale MMO based on Marvel’s franchises.” Little is known about the game, but the developer plans to release it in 2023 at the earliest.
The news was announced in an investor presentation from parent company Enad Global 7. Jack Emmert, who is the lead developer of DC Universe Online, will lead development of the Marvel MMO. Emmert is the co-founder of Cryptic Studios, which developed the mmo City of Heroes. Cryptic was supposed to make a Marvel MMO in 2006, but development was halted by Microsoft after two years.
Furthermore, there is little substantive information about the game in the presentation, except that the mmo will be ‘a long-term project’. Dimensional Ink also wants to release the game in 2023 at the earliest. It is not known exactly how far the development of the Marvel mmo is.
