‘Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3’ Update: Will It Be Released On Smartphone and Tablet?

"Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3" is an action role-playing game developed for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox and Xbox 360 by Raven Software and published by Activision. It is expected to be released sometime in 2017. The gamers are waiting for some updates from the makers.

It is speculated by inverse that the delay might be caused due to the popularity of smartphone and tablet games. ''In the time since Ultimate Alliance 2, a solid six years ago, Marvel's profile has only swollen to obscene proportions, turning obscure characters like Ant-Man, Black Widow, and Falcon into household names. New superheroes have risen to popularity, like Miles Morales and the current Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan. A Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 that takes full advantage of current-gen console tech and an even bigger Marvel Universe sounds like a no brainer'' the writer of the article on Inverse clarified.

''Except there is a reason: mobile games.'' The writer continued with the probable reasons which might have caused the delay. ''Tablet and smartphone games have reached near ubiquity, becoming a much more flexible and far-reaching platform than the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and even PC. There's no shortage of Marvel games on the smartphone market, either. Just take your pick: Marvel: Contest of Champions, Marvel: Future Fight, Marvel: Avengers Alliance, even Marvel: Puzzle Quest, all of which take Marvel's wide universe and adapt it for smaller smart devices. They're free, and somehow make way more money than any console game realistically can in 2016.''

Now going by the delay, the fans surely can expect more from the makers Raven Software. Gamesided too feels that the time is just right for releasing '''Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.'' ''Now admittedly, Ultimate Alliance 2 felt a tad on the stale end, but that's because between X-Men Legends, which started the series and Ultimate Aliiance 2, which was the last game in the series (and especially if you want to throw in Justice League Heroes, which was basically the same game with a roster of DC heroes), we had gotten 4 extremely similar games in the course of 5 years. Ultimate Alliance 2 came out in 2009'' clarified the writer.

So when will the wait end?
