Electronic Arts' Motive Studio is helming a brand new game based on the Iron Man IP.
The title is currently in pre-production and is going to be led by Oliver Proulx, who has previously worked on other Marvel titles including Eidos Montreal's Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel's Avengers.
“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,” Proulx said.
“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.”
Marvel Games VP and creative director Bill Rosemann added: “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. 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.”
This is the latest partnership that EA has struck with Disney for its entertainment properties. In 2013, the company landed the license for console and PC games for its Star Wars IP. While the publisher is still working on the Star Wars IP, such as the upcoming Jedi Survivor from Respawn, other companies are developing Star Wars projects, including Ubisoft and Quantic Dream.
