It looks like Ubisoft, the development studio behind the famous Assassin’s Creed series, might be working with Marvel to develop a new Blade game. For the unversed, and if you do not know about the character, Blade is a half-human and half-vampire, who hunts other vampires. Check out the complete details below.
Ubisoft is Developing a New Blade Game With Marvel
According to reports, a new Blade game could be in development at Ubisoft. The famous vampire hunter that was created by Marvel is also slated for a new movie in the next few years, but the leak of an upcoming video game is quite surprising.
On the famous portal of ResetEra several photos appeared, showing in particular actors in motion capture; where some information has been revealed such as the director of the game is indicated to be Bassam Tariq, yet the latter is also the director of the Blade movie to come. Does this mean that this video game project will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Although the idea is surprising, it is not to be excluded.
To give the leak even more credence, recently a job advertisement was previously published that stated that the company was looking for a “Lead Narrative Designer”. At the moment, Ubisoft has neither confirmed nor communicated the rumors about the project, but given that the Blade movie is scheduled for November 2023, there should not be any reason to release a game to help the IP succeed.
It is worth remembering that Ubisoft already has a lot of work to do in terms of games, as the French company is making several games simultaneously, such as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora or Star Wars, which requires numerous specialized teams. Besides, the other Assassin’s Creed-style games, Skull & Bones and Beyond Good and Evil are also in the works at the French studio.
In any case, a game centered on Blade has enormous potential, and would also let Ubisoft to reinvent itself using a new formula. If this leak is proven, we hope to get more information soon; the fact that the motion capture has been completed suggests that the whole project is in a relatively advanced stage.
In the meantime, you can also check out the photos of the motion capture below.
