THE AVENGERS PROJECT Could Be Shown At E3 Next Month As Square Enix Appears To Be Teasing The Infinity Stones THE AVENGERS PROJECT Could Be Shown At E3 Next Month As Square Enix Appears To Be Teasing The Infinity Stones

We haven't seen or heard much of The Avengers Project since Square Enix first teased the game back in January 2017, but that could change next month at E3 if Square Enix's latest posts are any indication.

Square Enix could finally be ready to lift the curtain on The Avengers Project, the mysterious, but highly anticipated Marvel game coming from developer Crystal Dynamics. While nothing official has been confirmed, the publisher has been teasing its upcoming E3 broadcast and fans have noticed an intriguing detail.

Upon first glance, the teasers just look like simple announcements for the broadcast, which will be held on Monday, June 10 at 6:00 p.m. PT. However, upon further inspection, fans spotted something very interesting about the adjacent portraits.


Hopeful fans have interpreted the colors of the surrounding pictures to be a representation of the Infinity Stones. As you can see, the first teaser posted last month was green and blue. At the time, not much was made of the image. 

However, this week, Square Enix posted another teaser image, this time with the colors being swapped to purple and orange.This has led people to believe that these are representing four of the Infinity Stones - Time, Space, Power, and Soul.

We'll have a better idea if this theory holds weight should Square Enix post a third image with the final two colors, yellow and red, which would be the Mind Stone and Reality Stone. 

Speculation that Square could finally properly reveal The Avengers Project always tends to build prior to big events, but E3 is easily the biggest when it comes to the video game industry. A similar excitement arose last year ahead of The Game Awards. And when it wasn't shown, creative director Shaun Escayg took to social media to assure fans that the studio is still "hard at work" on what he called a "very ambitious" game. Unfortunately, that's about all we've heard officially about the game since it was first teased in December 2017.



A game based on beloved Marvel heroes, The Avengers project is being crafted by Crystal Dynamics – longtime developers of the award winning Tomb Raider series – in collaboration with lauded Deus Ex developer Eidos-Montréal. The Avengers project is being designed for gamers worldwide and will be packed with all the characters, environments, and iconic moments that have thrilled longtime fans of the franchise. Featuring a completely original story, it will introduce a universe gamers can play in for years to come.


Square Enix will host its E3 showcase on Monday, June 10 at 6:00 p.m. PT. Hopefully, The Avengers Project will be there.

Now, I never played Marvel Heroes, but I always thought it looked kinda bad. But when news came out of this game focusing on the story over being another MMO, people were actually complaining... like, seriously?
RageDriver2401 - 5/25/2019, 3:07 AM
I hope it's not like MUA, those games were cool when I was a kid, but now they seem very boring.
Tonic24k - 5/25/2019, 6:50 AM
@RageDriver2401 - There's not a lot of news out on this. But the news that is out on this infers it's going to be a unique game. There's no reason to assume a game that's been in production for this long is just going to be like MUA.

I'm out if the outfits are all just MCU style
bkmeijer2 - 5/25/2019, 5:11 AM
@Kevwebsz - I agree. Or at atleast multiple skins that also allow us to switch between MCU and comics inspired outfits. Having that MCU Star-Lord among comics inspired Guardians in the Telltale game was just weird
Nightwing1015 - 5/25/2019, 6:04 AM
@Kevwebsz - Why? The MCU costumes are pretty good. And I'm sure there will be alternate skins anyway.
Nightwing1015 - 5/25/2019, 6:05 AM
I don't understand why anyone would care more about aesthetics than actual gameplay. I'd be like saying:

I'm not playing Spiderman PS4 unless he wears the Raimi suit
Benjamitesandwich - 5/25/2019, 6:08 AM
@MalseMarcel - I completely agree. As much as I love what Gunn has done for and with the Guardians, the DnA Star Lord will always be the very best, and he's the one I'm glad Tumblr never knew about.
Tonic24k - 5/25/2019, 6:41 AM
@Kevwebsz - That seems pretty dramatic...
Kevwebsz - 5/25/2019, 11:51 AM
@Tonic24k - This is true it could still be good lol just tired of everything outside of the MCU resembling it.
Tonic24k - 5/25/2019, 4:47 PM
@Kevwebsz - It's just influence. Something as big as the MCU is going to have influence on the culture. And the MCU style is one of many iterations throughout the comics. I treat it no differently than how characters have many different looks spanning their histories in the comics.
bkmeijer2 - 5/25/2019, 5:19 AM
I hope this game takes inspiration from the 2015 Secret Wars (and I'm not saying that because I want the 1984 Secret Wars to be a movie)
Legendaddy - 5/25/2019, 10:46 AM
@MalseMarcel - honestly, I think mcu's secret wars will combine certain aspects of both
Dredd97 - 5/25/2019, 5:41 AM
I hope this game doesn't just rip off the MCU. I hate that Marvel does that now. Do something original, or, unique concept, go back to the comic books. Also, no more Thanos. Marvel properties have been doing Thanos stories since 2012. How about Kang? Or Dr. Doom? High Evolutionary? Heck, even smaller like Ultron or Mandarin. Just not another Infinity story.
Tonic24k - 5/25/2019, 6:47 AM
@SmokingMan - Have you not been following the news on this? Square Enix said it was a unique story in its own universe. Relax.
LongMayHeReign - 5/25/2019, 10:25 AM
@Tonic24k - So true especially since Spider-man PS4 was it's own thing.
Dredd97 - 5/27/2019, 8:50 PM
@Tonic24k - I actually haven't, not much. I'm calm. I was just airing what I hoped it wouldn't be. But hey, thanks for being a condescending asshole.
Tonic24k - 5/28/2019, 6:42 AM
@SmokingMan - I wasn't being condescending. Maybe a bit of an asshole. But that's just because I had to match your tone. ;)

All I'm saying is, even IF they drew influence from the MCU what's so wrong with that? But they're not from what all news thus far would infer. I can see the exception being if they do unlockable alternate costumes or something. Which, IMO, would be super dope. I'd love to play the game with it's original flavor but also go back through in the vein of the MCU.

I'm just left wondering why people are so quick to default to negativity. Like, this game is exciting. Are we not all fans of the property here? This is being postured as being the triple A Marvel title we've been waiting on since always.

The only true make-or-break here is if Square Enix just completely shits the bed and -- after making us wait for years after teasing the project -- delivers a mediocre experience leaving us without a game Marvel fans can finally call "the one".

With that said, I do actually agree with you about doing a unique villain. My personal vote would be Annihilus.
Benjamitesandwich - 5/25/2019, 6:04 AM
As much as I love the Infinity Gauntlet runs and all things cosmic Marvel, I'm really feeling the infinity gem burnout. Seriously, there are so many other fantastic stories to explore and dissect, and the media keeps going back to the infinity gems: Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, (maybe) this game, and so many others.

I'd love to see Annihilation, Evolutionary War, Secret Wars, Secret Invasion, Dark Siege, or any other great story Marvel has in its vault, or even something completely new and unique.

Regardless, whatever Square Enix is making, I know I'm going to love it.
