Will there be a connection to the Black Panther game?

Rumours of EA working on an Iron Man game firstly began making the rounds back in August 2022.

The newly announced Iron Man game will be a single player, action-adventure title from a third-person perspective.

EA promised to tap: “into the rich history of Iron Man, channelling the complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark, and enabling players to feel what it’s like to truly play as Iron Man.

The project will be led by Olivier Proulx who was also the producer of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy from Square Enix.

Proulx will also be joined by fellow industry veterans, Ian Frazier (Mass Effect Andromeda), Maëlenn Lumineau (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey), and JF Poirier (Star Wars Squadrons).

It’s an honour and privilege to have the opportunity to make a video game based on one of the most iconic Super Heroes in entertainment today,” said Proulx. 

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.

When will Iron Man be released?

At the time of writing, EA’s Iron Man game does not have a release date or confirmed platforms.

However, it’s safe to assume that its release might be a couple of years away. Additionally, it’s likely to be released on PC as well as new-gen consoles.
