A new Marvel video game is now in development at Second Dinner, a studio comprised of former Blizzard talent. Again, like Hearthstone. Oh, also, Second Dinner has a ton of cash, thanks to a $30 million minority investment from Chinese tech and gaming giant NetEase. Though the press release doesn't mention what kind of game we can expect, the team is very enthusiastic about their time play testing and the feedback they've been receiving.

There are no concrete details (or even satisfactory hints) about the parts of the Marvel universe Second Dinner's game features.

It's unclear what the unannounced game could be, although judging by their pedigree on Hearthstone it could be a mobile or PC-orientated title.

The new game has been in early development - meaning prototypes and playtests - for about six months.

Two women have entered a Hindu temple for the first time since a ban was lifted on female visitors between the ages of 10 and 50. Nine people accused of involvement in the attack have been identified and two CPI (M) workers have been arrested, police said .

Second Dinner, as the studio are named, don't say anything about what the game is but it's probably a card game, no? "With the resources and creative freedom they now have, we look forward to what they will come up with next".

He added: "They and the team they've assembled at Second Dinner have made some of the greatest games in history. Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!" "I made a spreadsheet so I'm pretty sure".

"I've worked with Hamilton and Ben for years, and they are exactly who we want making Marvel games", said Jay Ong, EVP and head of Marvel Games at Marvel Entertainment, in a canned statement. Together, they formed a new studio called "Second Dinner", things have been quiet on that front for a while but this week, we started hearing some new things. Second Dinner is now looking to hire a client engineer and a technical artist, and if you apply and get hired then they'll show you what's going on.
