The highly anticipated Avengers Project is now a major focus of Crystal Dynamics' newly-established Crystal North studio.

Based in Bellevue, Washington, the company is made up of a number of industry veterans and is headed by Chad Queen and James Loe. As mentioned, Crystal Northwest is not only busy working on The Avengers, but also on 'technology development.'

'We have assembled a team of industry veterans and leaders in order to create gaming experiences that surpass the expectations of our passionate community,' commented Scot Amos, Crystal Dynamics' co-head of studio.

Not much is known about The Avengers right now, and the game was conspicuously absent from Square Enix's E3 press event back in June. It was previously revealed that the game is being directed by Stephan Barry (ex-Visceral Games) and has a creative director on board in the shape of Shaun Escayg. 

The Avengers Project has yet to attract a release date, although that's hardly a surprise at this point.
