A new Marvel Iron Man video game is in early development from Motive Studio, a division of Electronic Arts.
The details include the Iron Man game will be an all-new single-player, third-person, action-adventure game.
The team is being led by Olivier Proulx, who brings experience working on past Marvel titles like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and is joined by a dedicated team of passionate industry veterans including Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier at the studio.
Motive Studio is also behind the Deadspace remake, Star Wars Squadrons, and Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Developed in collaboration with Marvel Games, the game will 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.
Iron Man video game will feature a new and unique story
“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.”
“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.”
“Now we have the honor and privilege to unleash our creativity with the new Iron Man game we’re developing in collaboration with Marvel Games,” said Patrick Klaus, said General Manager, Motive Studio in a post.
Klaus continued, “It’s really important to me as the General Manager for Motive to make games that my team will be passionate about; that fire in the belly can translate into something amazing. Now we have the unique opportunity to bring that passion to a fan-favorite Marvel Super Hero, Iron Man. It’s exciting! And it’s a little daunting. Our team loves Marvel, and we know expectations are high. But we’re going all-in to do the best work of our careers and make a great single-player, action-adventure Iron Man game.”
Klaus added, “What’s especially exciting is that with this project, we have the opportunity to create a new and unique story. We are very much in the early stages and expect a big game like this to take years to create. Our goal in announcing the game early is to invite developers who are just as passionate about Marvel as we are to consider joining Motive. It’s also because we will want to engage with the community of players in due course. Stay tuned.”
The Iron Man game is currently in the pre-production phase and Electronic Art and Motive Studio will have more updates as the game is further along in development.
