Remember when John Romero tried to make you his bitch?

Marvel MMO creator Gazillion is really, really busy. It’s got up to seven games in the works, in fact.
“We actually have six or seven titles that are in production right now,” marketing boss Paul Baldwin told Joystiq at GDC.
Gazillion, founded in 2005, was announced as being the developer of Marvel MMOs for the next ten years earlier this month.
The first “adult” game to emerge from the partnership won’t hit till 2012. A children’s title, based on cartoon Superhero Squad will hit in 2010.

According to this BigDownload article, Marvel’s “grown up” Gazillion MMO won’t release until 2012.
Apparently the date’s been picked as there’s a bunch of Marvel movie content turning up in the same year.
Given that’s the projected date, and MMOs are the least stable of all development projects, waiting for this is likely to be something akin to “pissing in the wind”.
You haven’t got anything better to do, though. Right?

Marvel and start-up developer Gazillion have signed a ten-year deal to deliver MMOs based on Marvel characters.
The first, a kid-aimed game called Super Hero Squad, will debut in 2010 as a tie-in with a Cartoon Network show.
Beyond that, Gazillion will continue with its own version of a giant Marvel game, dubbed Marvel Universe, for both the PC and consoles.
Gazillion has been operating under the guise of NR2B Research up to this point, and employs 300 staff in the US.
The company is the owner of NetDevil, currently working on Lego Universe.
