Fans of the Marvel vs Capcom series have been waiting for quite some time for a new game in the series. There have been rumors on the internet about Marvel vs Capcom 4 and a new rumor has made its way to the internet that will excite the fans or at least give them hope.
The rumor comes from Polygon, who claims that their multiple sources have revealed that Marvel vs. Capcom 4 is currently in development and slated for release sometime in 2017.
According to the report, the Marvel vs Capcom 4 will be revealed this week at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event where Capcom Cup 2016 Street Fighter 5 tournament will be held, which is in line with an earlier rumor that the game will be revealed at the PlayStation Experience.
I wasn’t going to share this, but enough beating around the bush: a few other GAFers and myself were told about a Marvel vs. Capcom 4 announcement at PSX. I didn’t think it would happen for all of the obvious reasons, but there you go. We’ll know for certain in eight days.
Earlier this year Marvel Games noted that they have been receiving requests from fans of the series to make a new game in the series. The latest games in the series are Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 which launched a few years ago.
Marvel vs Capcom is crossover fighting series developed and published by Capcom. The series features Marvel comic book characters along with Capcom’s own characters fighting each other. Fans of the franchise can expect the roster of Marvel vs Capcom to draw strongly from the cinematic universe.
