New rumors have come up as of recent that suggest that Marvel and Square Enix’s The Avengers Project is going to be a reboot of Marvel’s Ultimate Alliance.
The Project was announced in 2017 with a trailer alongside the announcement. Other than a few slim details, not much is known abut the game. According to recent rumor however, the “full reboot” is comparable to the scale of God of War‘s latest game that pivoted the hack n’ slash style of gameplay from previous installments.
According to a user on 4Chan, they had this to say about the game:
“It’s not just Ultimate Alliance 3, but a full reboot with the name on it. Something like the new God of War, minus the story continuity, similar name, new gameplay and story structure. The game takes place of the perspective of multiple Avengers after a cataclysmic incident breaks the team apart, possibly even more than Civil War.”

The user also mentioned the core characters are Captain America, Iron Man and Scarlet Witch; although they are NOT the only playable characters. It is also mentioned that the game will have some form of “connections” to Playstation’s Spider-Man game with both existing in the same world. The post also references a Guardians of the Galaxy game in the works as well.
Just as many rumors associated with Movies, Games and Television; they must all be taken with a grain of salt. But of course, there is nothing wrong with a little hope. We do know for a fact that the game IS being worked on and will be a multi-year and multi-game licensed project.
As of right now, NO release date has been announced for the project.
