Maybe There will be an Avengers Video Game After All

Thursday, the day before The Avengers was released in U.S. cinemas, an Ubisoft contractor registered the domain "avengersbattleforearth.com," reports the domain registry watchdog Fusible.

There is, of course, no retail adaptation of the superhero film. Those who want to play an Avengers video game must wait until Zen Studios The Avengers table set arrives for Pinball FX2 and Marvel Pinball.

Fusible notes the speculation that an Avengers game adaptation "may have been delayed, cancelled, or simply couldn't work," but a listing attached to a major console publisher could mean something is coming, whether in retail or downloadable form.
