Marvel games feel as if they are being rumored and revealed at a more than steady pace at the moment, and EA has kept that momentum up today. Marvel and EA's Motive have confirmed the Iron Man game they were rumored to be collaborating on is indeed the real deal, revealing the very first official details about the new project.
Confirmation that Motive and Marvel are working together on an all-new Iron Man game comes courtesy of a press release issued by EA. The first details revealed about the title include that it will be a single-player, third-person, action-adventure game. Further evidence that Square Enix's attempt to create a live service Marvel game in the form of Avengers is not something anyone is keen on having a second crack at.
Another indicator that this is a Marvel project worth getting excited about comes in the form of news on who exactly has been tasked with bringing it to life. Heading up the project is Olivier Proulx who previously worked on Eidos Montreal's Guardians of the Galaxy. In the running for Game of the Year in 2021 and the sort of title Marvel needed to get things back on track after Avengers.
As for what corners of the ever-expanding Marvel universe EA's Iron Man game will pull from, the release explains that it will have an original story but also dive into the hero's rich history. “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,” Proulx said, also being credited as the game's executive producer.
There has never been a better time to be a fan of Marvel games. Not only is the previously indefinitely delayed Midnight Suns launching before the end of the year, but Insomniac is working on Spider-Man 2 and also a Wolverine game. Not to mention Amy Hennig's Captain America/Black Panther team-up game, and a rumored Black Panther single-player game also in the works at EA.
