We had a chance to look at some job posts regarding the upcoming Avengers game and by the looks of it, the title will be online oriented, 3rd person and will use a cover based system.
Let’s take a look at the job posts

Another thing worth noting
All of this info leads us to a conclusion that the game will be an online, cover based shooter or something similar but that does sound a bit odd knowing that we are dealing with heroes here. Let’s not forget that 3rd person cover based games have a lot of flexibility, Infamous is one example. It can be cover based if you want it to but it’s not mandatory.
