Big end of the year for Marvel fans! After the release of Marvel Snap, the highly acclaimed in-universe card game, it's EA's (Electronic Arts) turn to announce a partnership with the superhero franchise. The project is simple: develop at least 3 action-adventure games on consoles and PC , each with its own story and its own protagonists, in the Marvel universe.
The first is already in early development at Motive Studios (Star Wars: Battlefront II, Dead Space), a studio with which EA has already collaborated. It's based on Iron Man , and the studio is finishing up its fine team to do justice to Tony Stark.
In search of excellence
The two bands had admired each other for a while and want to produce something big out of this partnership:
Great things desired by the two giants of the industry and it promises very heavy for the future!
The 1st game already in preparation!
Iron Man will therefore be the first character to have his EA/Marvel game. It will feature an original story that "draws on the rich and complex universe of genius Tony Stark that will allow us to feel what it is really like to be Iron Man". Motive Studios will take care of it, and their team will be led by Olivier Proulx, who has already collaborated with Marvel for the adaptation of Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside industry veterans like Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau and JF Poirier.
A new challenge for EA?
This is not the first time that Electronic Arts has embarked on collaborations with film and fiction giants. The latest is obviously with Star Wars , with which they notably produced Star Wars: The Old Republic, Squadrons, but above all the very good Battlefront II and Jedi: Fallen Order.
In view of the motivations and resources invested, we can therefore expect very big projects, with an Iron Man who would come and destroy everything in the next 3-4 years, and we are in any case eager to see what they have in store for us. reserve for the future!
