New Marvel Video Game in Development from Ex-Hearthstone Leads

Though the press release doesn't mention what kind of game we can expect, the team is very enthusiastic about their time play testing and the feedback they've been receiving. "Coincidentally, people should check out the new jobs we just posted". "And that's money in hand with no need to sing and dance for milestone payments or desperately try to find new investors along the way". They both left Blizzard Entertainment eight months ago and have been working on a new game.

Second Dinner also announced that it has drummed up a $30 million minority investment from NetEase, which will facilitate a move to Irvine, CA to open a new office and swell its ranks beyond the studio's current five founders.

As revealed via a new video and blog post on Second Dinner's website, Brode and the rest of the team announced that they're now creating a project associated with Marvel. "I've worked with Hamilton and Ben for years and they are exactly who we want making Marvel games", Ong said.

"In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made", said Second Dinner CEO Hamilton Chu.

Second Dinner is now looking for a client engineer and technical artist, and it's "really excited" to get some new perspectives on its game, Brode said. "Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!"

It's unclear what the unannounced game could be, although judging by their pedigree on Hearthstone it could be a mobile or PC-orientated title. Details about it are yet unclear, but the crew promises that applicants who get hired into Second Dinner will naturally get to see it. Also, given the team's expertise, it wouldn't be surprising if this is some sort of a collectible card game.

"The Second Dinner team has a strong track record of delivering quality games".
