Marvel and Gazillion Sign 10-year MMO Deal

Marvel is taking another stab at online multiplayer games, as the company has signed an exclusive 10-year deal with Lego Universe publisher Gazillion Entertainment to develop its comic book properties into MMOGs.

This report by Wall Street Journal says that the companies will share revenue of the games. They are expected to announce details on the partnership tomorrow.

The comic book publisher had a MMO in development dubbed Marvel Universe Online. It was being developed by Cryptic Studios for PC and Xbox 360 until its cancelation by publisher Microsoft over Blizzard’s dominance in the MMO market.
