Eagle-Eyed Gamers Have Spotted A Clue That Indicates MARVEL RIVALS Could Be Coming To Console

After days of rumors, it turned out that Marvel was indeed developing a game similar to Overwatch, although Marvel Rivals lacks a crucial component—console play. Both Overwatch and its sequel allow cross-play and are accessible on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch.

As of the reveal of the game’s official announcement trailer, Marvel Rivals is exclusive to PC play.

But there’s hope for those who game exclusively on Xbox or PlayStation.

On the game’s discord in the FAQ section, the developers wrote,  “The game’s first stop will be on Steam, however we’re actively exploring potential released on other platforms.


However, since this intel was discovered and spread across social media like wildfire, the FAQ section has been revised to state, “The upcoming test will be available for PC. Keep an eye out for further updates on Discord!

It seems like a console port is unquestionably in development at the moment, but the creators probably would like to make a big statement about a console port rather than simply confirming it with a FAQ section.

The launch roster for the game seemingly includes:

  • Magneto
  • Bruce Banner/Hulk
  • Storm
  • The Punisher
  • Loki
  • Doctor Strange
  • Mantis
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Black Panther
  • Groot
  • Magik
  • Luna Snow
  • Spider-Man
  • Iron Man
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Peni Parker & Sp//dr
  • Star Lord
  • Namor

Additionally, Galacta and Doctor Doom are also confirmed to appear in the game.

A closed Alpha begins in May and given that it’s Marvel, we recommend signing up ASAP as there could be a limited number of spots. Stay tuned for future updates.
