Not too long ago we learned that the studio behind Just Cause, Avalance Studios, was working on an open-world Iron Man game. Yet, that project was swept under the rug some time ago. As it turns out, that wasn’t the end of that gaming franchise as Motive and Electronic Arts have just announced they are working on a new single-player, third-person action-adventure game exploring the character of Iron Man.
It seems that the game is only in early development. As such, we shouldn’t expect any news anytime soon. It will see a Marvel gaming veteran return with Olivier Proulx spearheading the project after his previous experience on the Guardians of the Galaxy game. He’s also joined by some industry veterans like Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier. Marvel Games’ Vice President and Creative Director, Bill Rossman, shared the following statement:
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.Bill Rossman
It’s certainly exciting to see the many iconic characters of Marvel’s history getting their time in the spotlight in gaming. There are still rumors of a Black Panther game on the horizon and while the reception has been mixed, Marvel’s Avengers is still going strong with Winter Soldier set to arrive at some point later this year. Spider-Man‘s getting a sequel while Insomniac’s also working on a Wolverine game. So, the future looks bright for Marvel.
