"While most seem to agree that Disney has very little violent content in their video-games, they do own a few video-game intellectual properties that could, in theory, be toned-down when it comes to violence."
i dont care, i just want good enjoyable experiences.
No. Disney has stated that they realize the Universe Star wars is in and the need for battles and action and they aren't going to "G-rate" it. Disney stuff can stay more for kids, but now they can market star wars even better along with making more games and cartoons based on the Star Wars universe. Be prepared to be bombarded with Star wars stuff in the next 2-3 years. At least 1 animated show.
Have Marvel comics and movies been less violent? Nope. There's your answer.
Violence tends to take a back seat to them messing with the lore / stories for the different IPs. Iron Man 3 was already messed with since they didn't want the same villain in 2 movies that are coming out close to each other (IM3 and next Spiderman movie). And the new Star Wars movies are said to not be following the books at all and will be an "original story" ...
Yup. Agreed. That's the part we need to (or for some, don't need to) worry about. Continuity.
Does this author not know that Disney owns a lot of movie companies that put out extremely violent and disturbing movies? Why would it be any different for games?
I think you should read the article. He does talk about that.
I dont think it will matter, They kept the violence in the Avengers movie, So why not the games?
I feel the industry could use less effort on violence and more to good game design overall. I personally would much prefer a good game than one with limbs flying or polygons &$@"ing.
Disney are clever enough to leave well enough alone. Besides they own all sorts. Just because something is owned by disney the conglomerate doesnt mean it then comes under the disney brand.
Answer: Deadpool game is still coming.
Yes it coming but they are not making it, the developer is High Moon Studios Subsidiary of Activision who is also the publisher. Yes Disney own Deadpool but I don't think their restriction will be that demanding to just take the fun out of making a Deadpool game.
Disney has done nothing but improve Marvel since it's acquisition and Disney will do the same for SW. BTW, the comics are as violent as they've always been with Hulk melting some old dude, Spidey almost killing a guy,Punisher being the Punisher, and a young Cyclops blasting Wolvy in the face. All is well in Marvel...
