Avengers Game Still Coming?

There may be some good news for fans that were hoping for a game based on Marvel's The Avengers. A first-person game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC was previously in development at THQ Studio Australia and Blue Tongue Entertainment before THQ closed both studios and the game was canceled.

Unauthorized footage from the game has been hitting YouTube in recent weeks, but now comes news from Gamespot that the rights to the game are now back at Marvel.

"The rights for a video game based on Marvel's Avengers IP have reverted back to Marvel," a Marvel spokesperson told them, adding, "The company is in early stages of exploring potential publishing and licensing opportunities."

More on this as it comes in, stay tuned.
