Marvel and Electronic Arts have announced that a brand new experience based on Iron Man is in early development. It’s being developed by Montreal-based Motive Studio, who handled Star Wars Battlefront II, as well as Star Wars: Squadrons. Motive is also responsible for the upcoming Dead Space remake.
“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.”
This new high-flying adventure is still in the pre-production phase. Meaning it’ll be a while before we see more from it. But, despite that being the case, this isn’t the sole announcement. It would seem that this new Iron Man game is only the first of several collaborations. So, we’ll likely see more announcements just like this in the coming years.
Olivier Proulx, Executive Producer at Motive, will be leading the team for this technological romp, joined by Ian Frazier, Creative Director; Maëlenn Lumineau, Franchise Development Director; and JF Poirier, Senior Producer. Proulx has experience working with the famed brand; they were on the team responsible for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
“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 Proulx. “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.”
