It seems like it was just yesterday that Deadpool was added to Marvel’s Midnight Suns and now yet another of the proposed 4 DLC characters is headed to the game next week on February 23rd. Venom, who was an adversary in the main campaign, joins the team in a continuation of the story started in “The Good, The Bad and The Undead”. Titled “Redemption”, Venom and the rest of the Suns must help advert a looming vampire uprising. “Redemption” comes as a complementary upgrade for those who bought into the Legendary Edition or the season pass.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a massive game that takes dozens of hours to complete, and with a consistent release for its post-launch content, the price tag for even the Legendary Edition feels like a steal. Despite the critical acclaim it has received – including winning our Game of the Year – sales have been sluggish. Publisher 2K Games does not report sales to the NPD group, think box office but for video games, but reporters like Jason Schreier have unearthed that even the mighty Marvel license didn’t ensure success at retail. This is sadly similar to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in 2021.
Today it was also made public that several big names are leaving Firaxis Games, the studio behind Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Jake Solomon, the game’s creative director is departing, as is the studio head Steve Martin. Without spoiling the conclusion, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, leaves the door open for a sequel, but with these recent developments, the future is hazy as to whether or not those threads will get resolved.
