For nylig købte Embracer Square Enix' vestlige studier, deriblandt Crystal Dynamics og Eidos Montreal. Begge disser har udgivet Marvel-baserede titler, ja faktisk skal Crystal Dynamics fortsat varetage udviklingen af nyt indhold til Marvel's Avengers, så hvordan kommer det til at fungere?
Ja, det er lidt kompliceret, for CEO Lars Wingefors har bekræftet overfor investorerne, at rettighederne til begge titler faktisk hører med i handlen, men det kræver at Disney godkender at udviklingen fortsætter under nye omstændigheder:
"All games that have been developed by the studios are included in the transaction. However, a number of external approvals are needed from external partners in order to close this transaction, and potentially licensors, as you mention here, could be one of those approvals needed. I don't expect any notable commercial agreement relating to the studios or this transaction to be declined by either regulatory parties or business partners; however, that remains to be seen. I think your question was relating to the two existing games and whether they will be still operated and built upon and changed from the existing plans today going forward. And I think that is the color I can give you on this."
Så kan dette blive dødsstødet for Marvel's Avengers? Og kan Eidos Montreal lave endnu et Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy? Vi afventer.
