MvC3 started production before SFIV did. That's how these things go. Capcom doesn't make a fighting game, wait to see how it does, and then make something else. The company is always working on multiple projects, assumes success, and then cancels games that seem like a bad idea. For the first time in ages, Capcom seems to get that SFV underperformed because of mistakes they made, not because of consumer disinterest.I can't believe people believe Capcom is going to release another fighting game after the colossal goatfuck that was SFV.
Man it's been 6 years of the game and they aren't going to make a massive patch to the game this late in its cycle without pissing off a lot of players. Better use of the license is to just make a Marvel 4.
Again, because you delusional jackasses don't seem to understand.
Licensing just Iron Man would cost more then licensing every single character did for Marvel 3. This holds true for ever marvel character now.
Marvel 4 would literally have the largest budget in video gaming history and it would be 95% licensing fees.
Of course Capcom could do some other franchise vs. Capcom, or a Capcom All-Stars thing, but it is 100%, absolutely positively not Marvel 4.
If you look at how bare bones the game is, and how much it sold I doubt they lost money on SFV. Not meeting sales expectation they put out for shareholders doesn't necessarily mean they're losing money, lots of bigger games that obviously cost more were considered successful by breaking one million sales. And that's not counting the shit tones of DLC they're still making, Capcom would have abandoned ship months ago if those weren't paying for themselves.I can't believe people believe Capcom is going to release another fighting game after the colossal goatfuck that was SFV.
Or maybe, you know... Ono was trying to make a joke and he's bad at jokes and it didn't work and now you are all talking about MVC4?
Since Marvel 3 released, these things have happened at Marvel studios:
The first Avengers movie released
The second Avengers movie released
Guardians of the Galaxy
Winter Soldier and Civil War
Spider Man appeared in a non Sony movie
Marvel was bought by Disney
Marvel put out 4 movies that crossed a billion and another 7 that crossed half a billion
Marvel launched their Netflix TV series with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and the upcoming Iron Fist series.
It's a completely different ballgame now. Marvel can do whatever they want. They can probably upfront the entire development cost for Marvel 4 with Disney's paycheck if they wanted to. At the same time, Disney can probably buy out Capcom at this point.
They've been forcing Inhumans for years and people are still not buying into it, especially with what happened in the latest X comicNot only all of that but the landscape in the comic book world has completely changed as well.
- Kamala Khan is a popular character now.
- Cyclops is dead
- EVERYONE is riding someone elses coat tails now...Falcon is Cap. America, Thor's girlfriend is Thor, ten billion Spidey characters, Kitty Pryde is Star Lord, etc.
- New Iron Man is a tweenage girl. I think Tony might be dead. Didn't keep up.
- Old school x-men are now in the present disgusted with what they became
- Wolverine is dead.
- Gwen Stacy is everyone. Deadpool, Spiderman...etc.
- Squirrel girl is some insanely manic comedy comic with bad art and it sells.
Its a whole new world out there. Comics are different, heroes are different, many characters are dead, and the cinemaverse has evolved. Hell Black Panther and The Inhumans are even fast rising stars now.
Made it to SRK! \o/So, there's this local event happening next month, thought I'd drop it here for those interested.
Gonna try and join this year, even though I expect to be double eliminated two times in a row. I'm such a fraud ;-;
I think we're getting one too, eventually, but this really doesn't look like an MvC4 teaser.If we can get The Last Guardian and FFXV, I don't think Marvel 4 is impossible.
Assuming they want a fighting game, who are they gonna call? Aksys?
They'd have Netherrealm make an official Marvel vs DC fighting game. Which, regardless of how good it is, it would be the best selling fighting game of all time.
They'd also slap a sticker on the box that says: "featuring Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat series".
I gave up on MvC3 because of its horrible netcode and character imbalances that were never addressed via patch.
How much does Marvel hates Capcom damn?
