Chu and Brode left Blizzard a year ago and began putting all their efforts into creating their own independent studio, Second Dinner. The indie studio was founded by former game director, Ben Brode, and executive producer, Hamilton Chu, joined by long-time Blizzard employees, Mike Schweitzer, Yong Woo, and Jomaro Kindred. The company announced today that it has received a $30 million investment from a Chinese company, NetEase, to fund a new project set in the Marvel universe. "They'll help us support separate teams inside Bungie to bring our newest ambitions to life".
In other words, you can safely assume this will be a mobile-first game, but there are still plenty of questions to answer, the most important being which Marvel IP it centres around. "They and the team they've assembled at Second Dinner have made some of the greatest games in history".
Normally this would be the part where I say we'll likely have to wait a while to learn much more about the game, but Second Dinner's trying hard to do the "small and fast" thing even as it links up with corporate titans, so who knows? "With the resources and creative freedom they now have, we look forward to what they will come up with next".

How Will the Government Shutdown Affect Tax Returns in 2019?
Nearly 90 percent of the people who work for the Internal Revenue Service are not at their jobs because of the shutdown. In addition, there is a new 1040 form this year because of the new tax law that was passed just more than a year ago.
Speaking about the project in the video, Brode said: '[We've been] working on, I think, a sick Marvel game for about six months.
Second Dinner aims to "make deep, satisfying games that are optimized for mobile" according to its official site. Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible! Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!' Second Dinner is still expanding, but it already has a prototype and playtesting going on for whatever the game will be.
Second Dinner is also looking to hire a client engineer and a technical artist for their upcoming venture.
