EA announces long-term partnership with Marvel

Electronic Arts has announced a long-term partnership with Marvel to develop at least three new action-adventure games for consoles and PC. These games are all set in the Marvel Universe, and each has its own original story. The first game currently in development is in charge of Motive Studios, which is based on Iron Man and belongs to the single-player, third-person, action-adventure game.
“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.

“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.”

It is understood that the Iron Man story of this collaboration will feature original narratives, leveraging the rich history behind the characters, and guide everyone to understand Tony Stark, a complex, creative, and charismatic genius, so that players can feel what it is like to play Iron Man.

The game development team is led by Olivier Proulx and has participated in the development of games such as “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy”. Most of the other members are veterans in the industry and have very rich experience.
