Footage of the recently canceled Marvel MMO has surfaced online.

The screenshots – which show what early menu players would likely achieve in the game – were posted by Ramiro Galan, who works as a lead designer at Pixelkings, a company that worked on the canceled project.

According to a post showing the art on Galan’s Linkedin page: “The focus was on rich, vibrant colors with stylistic tones that pay homage to Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.”

It is unknown what stage of development the canceled MMO had reached.

The images show a created player character, who is then asked to choose which faction they want to join. These factions are X-Men, Avengers, SHIELD and the Fantastic Four.

Players are then prompted to customize their character by choosing an outfit, which impacts certain stats. At the end of the customization process, players receive their own comic book cover showing off their character.

The MMO’s cancellation was announced last week by parent company EG7.

“EG7 announced today that it will be discontinuing development of the Marvel Project at Daybreak Games,” he explained.

“Based on the reassessment of the development risk profile, the size of the investment and the long-term product portfolio strategy for the group, the board of directors has decided to modify the development priorities and to reallocate resources within the group to focus on alternative long-term projects.

It’s unclear what the game’s expected release date was, but concept art for an earlier version of the game leaked some time ago.

EG7 previously confirmed during a presentation in November 2021 that it was working on the Marvel MMO.

A slide from the presentation stated that the “unannounced MMORPG” was to be a “Marvel IP-based massively multiplayer online game” led by Jack Emmert, who was officially the head of City of Heroes and leads the DC Universe Online team.
