There’s a new Marvel video game coming that will center on the classic fan-favorite character Iron Man! The game was officially announced by Electronic Arts, and it’s being developed by Motive Studio.
There’s not much information to share at this time, but we do know that it will be a single-player, third-person, action-adventure game and is currently early in development. It will feature an original story that channels “complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark,” and the game is being designed to make players truly feel like Iron Man.
Motive Studio is behind games such as Star Wars: Battlefront II, Star Wars: Squadronsand the upcoming Dead Space remake. So, we know the game is going to look good!
Olivier Proulx is heading up the team and has also worked on projects such as Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. He said in a statement:
“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. 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.”
Marvel Games Vice President and Creative Director Bill Rosemann said:
“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.”
The team also includes industry veterans Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineauand JF Poirier who have all worked on several big game projects. I’m excited to see how this game turns out!
