Today, Electronic Arts announced that they have penned a long-term deal with Marvel to develop no less than three new action-adventure games. Each game will feature an original story set in the Marvel universe. The first of these three titles is the single-player, third-person Iron Man game currently in development at Motive Studios that was announced in September.
“We have been long-time fans of Marvel and their impressive leadership, so this is a remarkable moment for our developers as well as our players and fans,” said Laura Miele, COO at EA. “We look forward to welcoming Marvel into the EA family of creators and know this collaboration will produce exceptional experiences for our players. We can’t wait to see players’ reactions when they suit up as Iron Man and do the extraordinary things this Super Hero is known for.”
“We pride ourselves on being enthusiastic, creative collaborators with developers so they have the freedom to create something deeply unique and truly remarkable,” said Jay Ong, Executive Vice President at Marvel Games. “The team at Motive is getting started on that with their Iron Man video game and we can’t wait for players to learn more in the far future.”
EA didn’t allude to what the other two pending action-adventure titles might be, though we will be sure to keep you up to date as new details emerge. For now, you can learn more about Motive’s upcoming Iron Man game on the EA website.
