MvCI will be remembered as falling into that brief time period where Disney were assholes and put a ban on certain characters being used in Marvel games
Hyyyyppeeee. Please be good. Assuming this is coming next year alreadyGet closer to the action by shifting the view to an over-the-shoulder “Heroic Camera” perspective—a series first that offers a more immersive way to play single-player or multiplayer on up to four systems. Play online*, offline via local wireless, or simply pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend, so they can join your team. With another pair of Joy-Con™ controllers (sold separately), four players can team up on one system! The drop-in/drop-out co-op possibilities let players create their own “Ultimate Alliance” at will.
Omega Force is still owned by them, so yeah. KT/TK is still involved regardless of who publishes the title.
Seriously. Ultimate Alliance felt like a big deal back then, and its super good to see it around in 2019. Bit miffed that this is yet another Infinity Stones and Thanos affair though, there are so many other stuff they can do.
TBH MvCI's problems were more than just on Marvel. Yeah the ban hurt bad, but Capcom was still in a weird "budget minded" phase. Don't forget they said we wouldn't have gotten a Street Fighter game - STREET FIGHTER - if Sony hadn't ponied up to pay some of the dev cost to ensure it was PS exclusive. After that, MvCI was worse than a red-headed stepchild.
the X-Men licensing embargo lifted (or was significantly relaxed, at least) much too late in MvCI's development to add them, presumably
Not really actually not at all.
That's a common misconception. SFV would have happened no matter what, Sony just sped up the process by 2 years.TBH MvCI's problems were more than just on Marvel.

Pretty crazy to look at the current presentations of Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake and see the difference that a proper budget and real dev support will deliver. Really, they should have held of development for a couple of years, it'd have been better for everyone.
LOL is that supposed to be a guarantee of quality?
Could be a timed exclusive though. Remember that Lego game when Nintendo published it as an exclusive on the wiiu and then WB published it to other platforms
