    Midnight Sons director reacts to James Gunn’s DCU Games plan: “It would have been a dream”

    James Gunn and Peter Safran have big plans to connect the DC Universe (DCU), including video games. But at least one developer doubts this approach.

    In response to the news that Gunn and Safran plan to make the games part of the overall TCU project, Fraxis Games designer Jake Solomon tweeted: “It would have been a dream come true for us at Midnight Sons. I understand that desire (I think) but movies and games are very different. And it’s in the gaming space. The amazing voice actors in? different universes. How they should/could be.

    Solomon was co-director of Marvel’s Midnight Sons, which incorporated many stylistic elements from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but ultimately distanced himself from it.

    This approach had several advantages for the Marvel’s Midnight Sons development team, including access to characters like Venom and greater creative freedom over the story. In various conversations over the years, some developers have expressed their frustration with the strict restrictions imposed by Star Wars counting the games in their official canon.

    One way or another though, the new DCU will try to connect the games, whatever that ultimately is. Meanwhile, Midnight Sons was well received, receiving positive feedback and good reviews.

    “With Marvel’s Midnight Sons, Fraxis has placed itself in the league of RPG developers like BioWare, Obsidian, Bethesda, and Larian,” we wrote in our review. “Its innovative turn-based hero battle system takes a while to get going, but it makes great use of card game mechanics to keep battles fresh, evolving, and unpredictable over the course of an epic-length campaign. Enemies are endlessly entertaining in terms of increased Damage.”

    Marvel’s Midnight Suns is out now for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. As for the DCU, which was formally introduced earlier this week, here’s a look at everything that was announced.
