Perry "stunned" by Marvel MMO canning


According to this, Dave Perry - long-standing developer of dozens of games, including the Matrix titles - was more than a little shocked that Microsoft recently decided to bin Cryptic's Marvel MMO.

"That is stunning to me, absolutely stunning to me," he said. "Marvel, as a property, is more mass-market than World of Warcraft."

He continued: "World of Warcraft sells because Blizzard made it, and Blizzard is a fantastic company, right? The talent at Blizzard is just phenomenal. If you can get a team that's got the same quality and you have that licence, I'll take the Marvel licence every time over Warcraft."

Perry is currently working on free-to-play MMOs at Acclaim, among other projects.
