After dominating on the big and now small screen, Marvel gas started to show an interest in the games industry now. Square Enix is reportedly working on a Guardians of the Galaxy video game. But after their somewhat bumpy release of Marvel’s Avengers, is it really a good thing to trust them with the Guardians of the Galaxy?

The only other time the Guardians had a major stand-alone gaming title since the Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, a part of a larger series of Telltale titles like Batman: The Telltale Series. However, the general reception by the public was luke-warm at best, and unfortunately, the makers behind the game, Telltale Games, went bankrupt a mere four months later.

However, Marvel games are not all doomed to fail, and Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man titles, both Spider-Man (2018) and Spider-Man: Miles Morales have both sold a record amount of units, and have become the highest-selling Marvel game ever.

Given the previous Marvel game Square Enix worked on was mediocre, and the last game featuring the Guardians as the protagonists caused their developers to go into bankruptcy, it’s a little concerning to see how Square Enix is going to tackle this game.

However, optimistic fans are hoping that Square Enix has learned from their mistakes, and will try to take the game into newer directions, taking a page out of Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man games, making a sort of open-world game. Imagine an open-world game of the whole galaxy, going from different planets with different NPCs.

Whatever the case may be, it is likely that we will find out in E3…

According to Bloomberg gaming reporter Jason Schreier on Twitter, Square Enix’s big display at the E3 2021 trade exhibition will be the Guardians of the Galaxy video game which will take place on June 13.
