Marvel’s 2022 Gaming Experiences
Marvel’s Midnight Suns – Q3/4 2022
Releasing in the back half of 2022, Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be a tactical RPG from XCOM developer Firaxis Games.
Players will be able to create their own Marvel hero to team up with the Avengers, X-Men, and more to take on the supernatural villain Lilith while unlocking new abilities and exploring the darker side of the comic book world.
Typically, superhero games take the third-person action-adventure root; however, this will be the first Marvel game to rely heavily upon tactics and strategy.
Continued Additions to Marvel’s Avengers
After releasing with great controversy in 2020, Square Enix’s co-op Marvel’s Avengers title continued to release new content regularly into 2021 as Hawkeye, Black Panther, and Spider-Man joined the heroic line-up.
Moving into the new year, Crystal Dynamics will still be updating the title across all platforms with more heroes, regions, missions, cosmetics, and plenty more.
According to some recent rumors, She-Hulk – played by Krizia Bajos – will be the latest hero to join the game at some point in 2022.

Beyond that, Marvel has plenty more to come including a new blockbuster game from Skydance Games and rumors circulating of a multiplayer title on the way.
