Former Hearthstone developers working on new Marvel game

Former Hearthstone developers working on new Marvel game

Chu and Brode left Blizzard previous year and began putting all their efforts into creating their own independent studio, Second Dinner. If this ends up being a Marvel-themed CCG, then we can probably expect a similar business model to Hearthstone, where players get in for free, can grind for currency or just buy card packs outright.

"In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made", says Second Dinner's Hamilton Chu, an ex-executive producer on Hearthstone.

Details are now scarce, but Chu brazenly insists that "In all likelihood, this will be the best [Marvel] game ever made".

There are no concrete details (or even satisfactory hints) about the parts of the Marvel universe Second Dinner's game features.

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. They both left Blizzard Entertainment eight months ago and have been working on a new game.

They're now working on an unannounced Marvel game which the team describes as "a kernel of a fun idea" that they've been playtesting an early prototype of. Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible!

A new announcement for his own company, Second Dinner, soon followed. "Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!"

"Today, we're excited to announce that we've entered into a new partnership with NetEase to help us explore new directions", reads a Bungie statement on the announcement.

Second Dinner have netted $30 million (£23.7m) from NetEase's minority investment, which should keep the lights on while they work on their mysterious whatever.
