EA/Marvel game deal dead in the water

The game deal struck between EA and Marvel back in 2004, which to date has seen only the release of Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects, is dead.

Confirmed by the publisher, EA has stated, "EA and Marvel have jointly agreed to discontinue development of the Marvel titles under the EA Games Label. This was a business decision based on EA's portfolio strategy".

Marvel added that the two "have jointly agreed to discontinue development of Marvel fighting games under the Electronic Arts brand."

This follows the closure of EA Chicago, which was working on a new Marvel fighting game.

Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects was hardly a knock out game, despite having potential.
