EA and developer Motive announced a new untitled single-player third-person Iron Man game which is currently in pre-production. It is reportedly the first among many upcoming Marvel games currently being developed by EA. The team is led by Olivier Proulx, who also worked on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It will also feature an original narrative that “taps into the rich history of Iron Man, channeling the complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark, and enabling players to feel what it’s like to truly play as Iron Man.”
Marvel Games vice president and creative director Bill Rosemann commented on the announcement in a press release, saying:
“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. 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.”
