Marvel’s Midnight Suns, the rumored XCOM game, is real

A new GamesBeat event is just around the corner! Learn more about what’s next.

As rumored, Firaxis is giving Marvel the XCOM treatment. Take-Two announced Marvel’s Midnight Suns during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live program today. It will be released in March 2022.

The first trailer for the game featured familiar Marvel heroes like Wolverine and Ghost Rider in a CG trailer. You will fight alongside these heroes against supernatural forces such as vampires.

Marvel is no stranger to games. Its heroes have appeared in fighting games, beat-’em-ups, and triple-A action-adventure titles. This XCOM-style turn-based strategy treatment is new to the brand.

Firaxis plans to reveal Marvel’s Midnight Suns game in September.
