Iron Man fans received a surprise treat this morning in the form of an exciting announcement from EA Motive. In the announcement, it was revealed that Motive is partnering with Marvel Games to develop a brand new third-person single-player Iron Man game.

The game is currently in early development and is described as an action-adventure title according to a post about the project on the Electronic Arts website.

As noted in the announcement, the project is being headed by Olivier Proulx who previously worked on titles like Marvel’s Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It also boasts a crew of industry veterans like Ian Frazier who previously worked at BioWare and served as the Creative Director at Motive for games like Star Wars: Squadrons.

Additionally, the team features Maëlenn Lumineau who previously worked at Ubisoft Quebec as a Production Director on games like Immortals Fenyx Rising and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and another former member of Ubisoft, JF Poirier, who worked on Child of Light at Ubisoft, and on games like Star Wars: Squadrons at Motive.

With this information, it seems like the project is in good hands, and we’re eager to learn more about it. That said, it’ll likely be a while before more is shown as the game is currently in its pre-production phase. Updates will be shared by Motive in the future as it gets farther along in development, though.

The new Iron Man game isn’t the only thing Motive has cooking either, as the studio is currently handling the development of the upcoming Dead Space remake that’s set to release in January 2023. After hearing about Motive’s new Iron Man project, we’re curious what your thoughts are. Is there anything you’re hoping to see from the game in particular? Let us know in Chatty!

        Conceptually I can see an Iron Man video game working really well. You've got a wide variety of potential weapons and combat abilities, you've got high-tech scanners and tools for puzzle solving, the suit itself permits lots of customization.

          There is definitely a natural-feeling route of suit upgrades that would keep you invested in game. Always been a problem with a Superman-like game where you have all your powers to start and they want to artificially weaken you. The Barman games proved a tech-based superhero is far better

            Yup, and in the case or Iron Man specifically it's well established that he has a variety of suits and he's constantly tweaking configurations and loadouts. Letting the player choose a base suit and then do a Mechwarrior-esque equipment loadout for each mission would be badass.

            I played the demo of one of them. The first I think. There was a sense that it had potential, but was hampered by being a low-budget, short-dev-cycle movie tie in.

            only after they made a lot of changes to the game and you set your controls up correctly. As bad as some aspects of the last Avengers game was the one thing it did well was the feel of flying around w Thor and Ironman.
