UbiSoft disappointed fans of the Marvel Blade game when it confirmed that the rumors are not true

For now, it’s just a movie. It will be great when they are finished filming.

Marvel’s Blade isn’t on the list of licensed games that Ubisoft is working on, despite the fact that it is making games like Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. There was a speculation that Ubisoft would be developing a video game based on the next Blade movie, but Ubisoft has denied that.

On Twitter, the corporation was very explicit. It reads, “Sorry to split up the rumors.” We’re not producing a Blade game, but we’re excited to see what our friends at Marvel Studios have in store for the film that will be released in 2019! There is no room for ambiguity. The story started when Ben Collins in Detroit: Become Human actor Edwin Gaffney shared pictures from the motion capture shoot on Instagram. Because Gaffney tagged Ubisoft on the tweet and one image featured a scene slate with the word “marvel,” people began to make assumptions. It wasn’t Blade, whatever Gaffney was working on.

It’s not difficult to see a Blade video game being created; it literally presents itself as a title in the vein of Ghost of Tsushima or Dynasty Warriors that is drenched with sword action. Of course, there are already a ton of Marvel-related video game projects in development. It makes me think of Insomniac’s PlayStation-only Spider-Man 2, especially in light of Spider-Man Remastered’s recent PC release. A Wolverine video game is also being developed by Insomniac for the PlayStation 5.

The film Blade is scheduled to come out the following year. As of the time of this writing, it will arrive in theaters on November 3, 2023, which is just over a year away. It wouldn’t be shocking if the movie had a video game counterpart, but at least we know it won’t be from Ubisoft.

However, there is still a lot going on at the studio. It will present a number of future games at Gamescom, which starts off soon. Opening Night Live is actually broadcast on Tuesday, August 23 at 7 PM BST, 2 PM ET, and 11 AM ET. It’s fortunate that Ubisoft anticipated the Blade rumor.
