EA Motive has announced that it is developing a new game centered around one of Marvel Entertainment’s most popular characters, Iron Man. Created in collaboration with Marvel Games, the project is being described as a single-player, third-person, action-adventure title that features “an original narrative that taps into the rich history of Iron Man, channeling the complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark.” EA Motive noted that this is just the first of “several” new games that will emerge as part of the new partnership between Marvel and Electronic Arts.
“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.”
