EA teams up with Marvel for three new games

EA and Marvel have announced a deal to work together on new action adventure games for consoles and PC.

“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.”

The first title under this deal is a single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man game being developed by Motive Studio, which was announced back in September.

The upcoming Iron Man game will feature an original story that delves into “the rich history of the character, channeling the complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark, and enabling players to feel what it’s like to truly play as Iron Man.”

The team at Motive Studio working on the Iron Man title is being led by Olivier Proulx, who previously worked on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy by Square-Enix. Also joining the team is Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier.

“At Marvel, we strive to find best-in-class teams who can take our characters on heroic journeys in ways they haven’t before, and collaborating with Electronic Arts will help us achieve that,” said Jay Ong, Executive Vice President at Marvel Games. “We pride ourselves on being enthusiastic, creative collaborators with developers so they have the freedom to create something deeply unique and truly remarkable. 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.”

As for the other titles, EA and Marvel remain tight lipped but rumours suggest a Black Panther game from a newly formed EA studio in Seattle.
