Today, Electronic Arts (EA) and Marvel studios just announced a collaboration on a long-term deal to develop at least three new action adventure games taken from Marvel Comics that will be available for consoles and PC.
First Title In-Development is an ‘Iron Man’ Game out of Motive Studios
According to EA, Each of these games will be their own original stories set in the Marvel universe with the first title in development being a single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man game coming out of Motive Studios.
The deal announcement doesn’t reveal what the next games will be, nor does it hint at which Marvel heroes they might feature. It was also unclear whether the “Marvel universe” for these three games will be shared, or if each takes place in an isolated reality. It’s worth noting that, according to EA’s exact words, the agreement is for “at least three games”, which opens the door to even more.

“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.”
“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.
