Bumping the topic to let people know that it got patched to get rid of the anti-piracy software. Now this could mean a lot of things...people can mod to their hearts content now (already done), Capcom might have thrown in the towel with this game,  we have to worry about this franchise now more than ever. Either way, there is that sliver of hope that the game might continue but with all the horror stories I doubt it.

All the Marvel games got an Infinity War update but not this game that was named after the movie to advertise it. It's dead, Jim.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I think the best course of action for this game in general is to rebrand it as a sequal/update in a similair vein to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. MvCI dealt, understandably, with an awful lot of bad press in its opening weeks. I feel if they update the game with better visuals and also adding the important omissions (X-men, Dr. Doom) that already might put it back in people's good favor. Bringing back Venom already had a positive effect, however small.

I love the MvC franchise and I desperately want to see it continue and succeed, but for that to happen to know there has to be some competent choices at its helm and Marvel also has to let Capcom do their job without forcing them to only pick MCU characters etc.

IDK about an Arcade Edition.  From the stories that have been floating around post-launch, it sounds like Marvel/Disney was an absolute nightmare for Capcom to work with.  Disney's ultra micromanagement and insistence on treating the game like an advertisement for the MCU made development a living hell.

Their best bet would be to just abandon MvCI entirely, take the engine and the gameplay which is honestly still really good, and use it to make a new Capcom Fighting All Stars or something.  Or at least do a different crossover with a company that'll allow them to make an actual game and not a glorified movie trailer.

This is what I'm thinking yeah. As much as I want the franchise to continue, I think it will be impossible given that Disney will not allow the freedom that I think made MvC3 ('s roster) so much fun.

Even then Marvel meddled pretty badly with what Capcom could/couldn't add. It took massive amounts of convincing just to get Shuma-Gorath as dlc, and Marvel had some rather silly reasons why they couldn't use certain characters (they wanted Venom but Marvel said no because Venom was currently a different guy in the comics and not being able to use Gambit because he was dead at the time).

Well that’s what happens when a talking mouse is holding the strings nowadays. Plus the fact that the game was released before the Fox-Disney merger, so I wouldn’t expect an arcade edition for that matter, plus other reasons (Including the file size for the game)

Talking point question: do you think Capcom should have waited to release MvC:I until all Marvel properties were absorbed by Disney? Yeah, it's a huge risk, but you get all your titles back, and you don't have to be dealing with Fox. Would you say Marvel made a mistake in letting Fox get a piece of that pie?

They couldn't have possibly known that the merger was going to happen. Hell, with Comcast still out there looking to outbid WE still don't know the merger is gonna happen even though I imagine at this juncture Marvel's still probably going to get the characters back. The point is that Capcom and Marvel were looking to have something out there to capitalize on Infinity War and it crashed and burned through various circumstances, seen and unforeseen.

I mean, there certainly were a ton of those rumors going around, but none of them were every confirmed, and quite a few don't actually line up with the actual game. Obviously, there's no doubt that Marvel was the reason behind the lack of any X-Men/FF characters, but the more outlandish stuff like, "Marvel forced Capcom to make all the Capcom characters ugly", or similar, are all exceedingly unlikely to have any basis in reality.

I would also note that Disney didn't have anything to do with this game; the only Marvel subsidiary they're involved in is Marvel Studios (and the only reason that happened was that Marvel Studio wanted to escape from being under Marvel due to their overbearing meddling, so Disney essentially made it an independent entity from Marvel proper); this is all being overseen by Marvel Entertainment.

The executive meddling honestly is what makes the most sense. Things like the graphics and presentation wete obviously Capcom's fault but the Marvel side of the roster being like it definitely had hints of meddling. I'm pretty sure Capcom fully intended to add X-Men characters into the game. They knew people wanted these characters and more but couldn't. The meddling might have also contributed to the overall poor performance with the Capcom guys overall feeling too constrained and leading to them just not caring about their game.

Arc Sys showing them up with DBFZ and BBTAG didn't do them any favors.
I've heard people suggesting they should just take this system and turn it into a Capcom only crossover and I have to agree.
