marvel.gifThis morning during the Q4 conference call it was asked if Marvel had thought about going into the game market after the announcements of several companies dropping Marvel games (Microsoft’s Marvel MMO).  In a nutshell, Marvel did say it was not pursuing this venture at this time.

However, knowing that Marvel also says they have no plans to reprint sold out issues, only to turn around a couple of weeks later, makes me wonder how long we will have to wait until the Marvel MMO game is resurrected by the company.

Even with my speculation, I can understand why Marvel would be hesitant to jump into the game market, especially with a huge amount of money tied up in Marvel Studios films that are scheduled to be released over the next decade.
