While Disney has been increasing their in-house video game development, the company doesn't feel a need to take over all Marvel game development in the future, company spokesmen told investors this morning.
"On the video game front, (Marvel) have some smart licensing agreements with some of the best video game manufacturers in the business," said Bob Iger, Disney's CEO. "While we have been steadily moving in the direction of video game integration, we don't rule out the blend of licensing and self-produced and distributed video games.
"As these licensing deals expire we have the luxury of considering what's best for the company and the products."
Earlier today, Disney announced that they were buying Marvel for $4 billion in cash and stock. The deal would give Disney ownership of Marvel's 5,000 characters. Currently both Activision and Sega publish games based on Marvel properties.
