A 'Guardians of the Galaxy' video game is reportedly in the works
A talking raccoon, a nearly-unkillable tree, and a devilishly handsome '80s kid are unwitting heroes in the "Guardians of the Galaxy," a killer Marvel movie from 2014.
If you haven't seen it: go see it . It's funny and stylish and doesn't take itself too seriously and it's got a killer soundtrack. Did I mention the talking raccoon? He's actually a mess-talking raccoon.
Better yet, the game is reportedly in the works from the team that created the last two (excellent) games in the "Deus Ex" series : "Deus Ex: Human Revolution" and "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided." Not ringing a bell? They're complex and delightful and very, very pretty first-person action games. You sneak around - or dash in, guns blazing - while continuing the story of cyborg-human Adam Jensen.

As Eurogamer's Tom Philips reports , the team at Eidos Montreal that was previously responsible for the "Deus Ex" franchise is being put to work on a new "Guardians of the Galaxy" game. It sounds like the game is still far from complete - Eidos Montreal is reportedly helping out on a new game based on "The Avengers" before getting to work on the "Guardians" game.
Few details are known about either game at this point, but Square Enix - the Japanese publisher that owns Eidos Montreal, and also announced a collaboration with Marvel last week - says more details are coming in 2018. And that makes sense given that a new "Avengers" film is expect to launch in 2018.What makes less sense is the timing of this new "Guardians of the Galaxy" game - the second film in that franchise is planned for a May 5, 2017 launch (as in, a few months from now). Perhaps the game is timed for launch alongside a third film in the series? We'll have to wait and see; this remains a report, and hasn't been confirmed by Square Enix or Marvel/Disney.
