EA begins production on singleplayer Iron Man game

A single-player Iron Man game is finally being developed by EA after it was first announced last September

The action-adventure game will be developed by EA Motive in a collaboration with Marvel. This studio also worked on the recent remake of Dead Space as well as Star Wars Squadrons and Battlefront 2. 

The news of development comes from a Reddit thread by the EA Motive team in which they responded to questions about the Dead Space remake. However, one reply revealed that development had started – “We have an amazing team at Motive that has started working on Iron Man and you can rest assured that it’s in great hands!”

EA has described the game as being an “all-new single-player, third-person, action-adventure.” The blog post also spoke more about what players can expect: “Developed in collaboration with Marvel Games, the game will feature an original narrative that taps 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,”

Furthermore, a look into the Motive career page shows that they’re looking for a development director, senior gameplay programmer, AI programmer and audio programmer to join the team. Judging by these roles, the game is still in early development.

The team is being led by Olivier Proulx who is known for being the game director for Eidos Montreal’s Guardians of the Galaxy. About the Iron Man game, he says:

“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.”

Finally, EA also hinted that the project will be “the first of several new games” in collaboration with Marvel. It’s safe to say it’s an exciting future for Marvel fans.
