With Embracer completing the deal to acquire Crystal Dynamics and the other Square Enix owned studios and IP, it seems the company is seeking to continue pumping out content for Marvel’s Avengers, and to even make games based on Marvel’s stable of IPs.
This tidbit of info was shared by reliable Marvel’s Avengers dataminer and leaker miller on Twitter.
I suspect Avengers will live and that will be announced when the Embracer/Marvel deal closes. Brass tacks: The Crystal Dynamics acquisition has now officially happened and I'm hearing work continues on Avengers relatively unabated. Things can change, but that's where we stand.

From the outside looking in, it seems like Embracer are in the middle of working out a deal with Marvel that extends well beyond Avengers (which is understandable with recent news suggesting both EA and Ubisoft have Marvel content in the pipeline.)

MP1st has reached out to miller, who states that he believes that Embracer is seeking to be involved with Marvel titles well beyond the three studios acquired from Square Enix.
Aside from Marvel’s Avengers, another studio that was acquired by Embracer in the Square Enix deal was Eidos-Montreal, which developed the 2021 action game, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Could we possibly see a sequel to the game? Compared to Marvel’s Avengers, the GOTG game was excellent overall. Our review spoke highly of it, and got a 9.5/10 from us.
Bear in mind, this report is not an official announcement from Embracer, though we reached out to the company and will update this article if we hear anything back.
