At The Game Awards, it was confirmed that Arkane is working on a brand new Blade game. Unfortunately, it was given no release date, no platforms, and virtually no other details beyond it being an original story and a third-person action game. Given the lack of details, fans were left to assume this game is very far away. It was also confirmed that the development just started, with it being believed to have started production in 2022. With that said, insider Jeff Grubb stated that internally, Arkane is targeting 2027 for Marvel's Blade. That's about four years from now and it was speculated that this could mean it may release alongside the next Xbox.
(Rumor) According to Jeff Grubb, Arkane Lyon's Blade is currently targeting 2027— Idle Sloth💙💛 (@IdleSloth84_) December 24, 2023
Disney/Marvel have put it on their calendar for 2027, which is about 3 years out.
It could be a launch title for new hardware as well as a cross-gen title.
Given Arkane is owned by Microsoft, many are wondering if it will be an Xbox exclusive, but no one has gotten a concrete answer. Other insiders claim Marvel's Blade will be an Xbox exclusive and while there's no reason to really not believe that, it's strange Microsoft is dodging the subject. Is it possible that it's because it's not coming until next generation so they can't say what platforms it will even be on? Possibly! However, Microsoft is making an exclusive Indiana Jones game, PlayStation has the exclusive rights to Spider-Man and Wolverine, and it wouldn't be surprising if there are other big properties coming as exclusives to these platforms in the future.
