Hearthstone director's new studio is working on a Marvel game

A new Marvel video game is now in development at Second Dinner, a studio comprised of former Blizzard talent. They also announced that they've secured a big lump of investment from NetEase, the Chinese developers and publishers of many free-to-play PC and pocket telephone games (including the upcoming Blizzard collaboration Diablo Immortal).

"In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made", said Second Dinner CEO and paragon of modesty Hamilton Chu.

Speaking about the project in the video, Brode said: '[We've been] working on, I think, a sick Marvel game for about six months. No further details are available on the mystery Marvel project, although that's a given considering it's barely got off the ground at this point.

To the Hearthstone fans, Ben Brode was the man responsible for skyrocketing the game into awesomeness.

"The Second Dinner team has a strong track record of delivering quality games". Some sort of Marvel-based card game is a reasonable bet, as everyone on the founding team-Brode, Chu, Mike Schweitzer, Yong Woo, and Jomaro Kindred-were all senior Hearthstone developers prior to teaming up for Second Dinner.

"I've worked with Hamilton and Ben for years and they are exactly who we want making Marvel games", said Jay Ong, the head of Marvel Games. Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!' Second Dinner is still expanding, but it already has a prototype and playtesting going on for whatever the game will be.

More than anything, the team at Second Dinner seems to be loose and looks like they're having fun. Together, they formed a new studio called "Second Dinner", things have been quiet on that front for a while but this week, we started hearing some new things.

The current job listings include full-time positions for a client engineer and technical artist.
