Today, Electronic Arts confirmed that a single-player Iron Man game is currently in development at Montreal-based Motive Studio. The team at Motive consists of industry veterans who have experience working on other Marvel titles including last year’s Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
The upcoming “single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man video game,” is being developed in collaboration with Marvel Games, according to EA’s official announcement. The game will feature an original story that aims to channel “the complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark,” as players don the Iron Man suit. The upcoming Iron Man title will be the first of several new games coming from the collaboration between Marvel and EA.
“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.”
Motive’s Iron Man game is still in the pre-production phase, so it is unlikely we will get release information any time soon. We will be sure to update you here with new details as they emerge, so stay tuned to Guide Stash for updates.
