We may only just finished recovering from E3 2012, but in a matter of days comes another huge event located in Southern California. And even though its focus is meant to be on comic books and genre films, video games continue to grow as part of the beautiful rainbow of geekery. Of the most recent panels announced so far (which include panels for Halo 4, Last of Us and Mass Effect) the newest Marvel panel hints to an exciting and previously unannounced title from the developers of the Transformers games.

Here’s how SDCC’s site describes (opens in new tab) the panel (emphasis ours):
Marvel Video Games— Learn all about Gazillion’s Marvel Heroes MMO, Ubisoft’s Avengers: Battle for Earth and more future Marvel games-including an announcement from Activision and High Moon Studios that is sure to be a hit! Q&A will follow.
In this Marvel games specific panel that brings together multiple developers, Activision and High Moon Studios will have an announcement of some sort which, unless it’s related to High Moon’s upcoming Transformers game, implies a brand new game will be announced. Activision has published numerous Marvel game in the past, perhaps more than any other publisher. Currently they don’t have any upcoming Marvel games they’ve revealed publicly, so could this be the next one in the pipeline? And if so, what is it?
Based on recent history it could be another X-Men adventure or perhaps something as safe as a game based on next year’s Iron Man 3 film. Or maybe they’ll really shock us with the return of Marvel Ultimate Alliance, a multiplayer series that would fit High Moon’s skill set. We’ll let you know as details come in. In the meantime, here’s a trailer for High Moon’s upcoming Transformers game, Fall of Cybertron (opens in new tab).
