Disney & Marvel Games Showcase: What to expect

As a dedicated event for Disney’s efforts in the gaming industry, expect this showcase to highlight a range of upcoming titles in development, along with providing new updates for existing games.

Directly mentioned in the event blog was Marvel’s Midnight Suns, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, along with Disney Dreamlight Valley. Thus, we can expect some new reveals and additions there, but that’s seemingly just the tip of the iceberg.

With Disney & Pixar Games, Marvel Games, Lucasfilm Games, and 20th Century Games all set to make an appearance, there’s plenty to look forward to.

Namely, hot off the heels of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s first tease, there’s every chance we learn more about the single-player game here. From the first gameplay reveal to a concrete release date, there’s a great deal the developers could share on stage. We could hear news on Star Wars Eclipse, too, although it could be some time before we get to play it.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been in the oven for quite some time, making the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase a perfect event for a full reveal.

Marvel Snap is another title that could feature throughout the showcase. With the collectible card game finding its footing in an early Closed Beta, we could learn of upcoming features, new seasonal crossovers, and even a solid release window as well.

While not strictly mentioned in the announcement, there’s always a slim chance we hear from Insomniac Games during this event too. With both Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine in development, new teasers could very well be on the agenda.

Last but not least, we also know for certain the showcase will provide a first look at former Uncharted director Amy Hennig’s upcoming Marvel ensemble game with Skydance New Media. Exactly what this project entails is anyone’s guess for now, but we’ll soon know all about the next ambitious Marvel crossover.
