A new Marvel video game is now in development at Second Dinner, a studio comprised of former Blizzard talent. The indie studio was founded by former game director, Ben Brode, and executive producer, Hamilton Chu, joined by long-time Blizzard employees, Mike Schweitzer, Yong Woo, and Jomaro Kindred. Additionally, Second Dinner has received a $30 million minority investment from NetEase, which has allowed the team to move into a new office space in Irvine, California. Currently, a prototype of the game has been put together and it is able to be playtested.
That's all that's been shared so far but hopefully, in the near future, Second Dinner will release more details about its upcoming Marvel title and the platforms that it'll be heading to. "With the resources and creative freedom they now have, we look forward to what they will come up with next", said NetEase vice president Ethan Wang. Second Dinner is now looking to hire a client engineer and a technical artist, and if you apply and get hired then they'll show you what's going on. "They and the team they've assembled at Second Dinner have made some of the greatest games in history", he said.

As well as the huge Square Enix-published Marvel game that we know is in development, it seems the Disney-owned company has something else in the works, too. "Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible.or Mighty...or quite possibly all of the above!" (Which means development started at roughly the time Second Dinner was officially revealed.) Today's announcement video doubles as a recruitment pitch, and early job listings mention that the studio wants to make "deep, satisfying games that are optimized for mobile". "I made a spreadsheet so I'm pretty sure".
That certainly fits in with what we'd expect from numerous folks behind Hearthstone, and all expectations are now focused on this being a Marvel-licensed card game.
