Of course that was probably due to short development cycles that where even more shortend to meet the movies release date.


I wish marvel all the best with another company, but if they do not change the production strategy for license games, they will get the same result from any other game development studio. So theoretically Marvel could have stayed with SEGA. Maybe the partnership ended because SEGA complained to Marvel about their requirements (Keep the game close to the movie script and the movie release.)
