New Ironman Game in the Works
EA and Motive revealed that a new Iron Man game is currently in development.
Electronic Arts confirmed an all-new single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man video game is now in early development at Montreal-based Motive Studio. The team is being headed by Olivier Proulx, who has experience working on previous Marvel titles such as Guardians of the Galaxy. Industry veterans including Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier are also part of the team.
So far, little information has been revealed, although we do know that the game will have an original narrative that explores Iron Man's history and features Tony Stark's creative genius. Players will be able to feel what it's like to be Iron Man as they go through a series of missions based on the character's comic book stories.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with the talented team at Motive Studio to bring their original vision of one of Marvel’s most important, powerful and beloved characters,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President and Creative Director at Marvel Games. “Their experience delivering both established entertainment worlds and thrilling gameplay — combined with their authentic passion for the armored icon — will fuel our quest to deliver a love letter to a legendary hero in the form of the ultimate Iron Man video game.”
Motive Studio is no stranger to developing games associated with iconic characters and settings. They have experience developing titles like Star Wars: Squadrons and the upcoming Dead Space remake scheduled for January 27, 2023.
“It’s an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to make a video game based on one of the most iconic Super Heroes in entertainment today,” said Olivier Proulx, Executive Producer. “We have a great opportunity to create a new and unique story that we can call our own. Marvel is encouraging us to create something fresh. We have a lot of freedom, which is so engaging for the team.”
EA shared that the game is currently in the pre-production phase and will have more updates to share as development continues. Also of note, this new collaboration between Marvel and Electronic Arts, is also the first of several new games. Stay tuned for more information as EA and Marvel continue to assemble their own Marvel Universe on a gaming platform near you.
