“We’re thrilled to be working with the talented Motive team on their initial vision for one of Marvel’s most important, powerful and popular characters,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President and Creative Director of Marvel Games.
With an original story in the background, players will be able to impersonate Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, a press release from EA Motive, a Montreal-based studio, promises. The game will be single-player, with a third-person view.
“We have a great opportunity to create a new and unprecedented history, our own history. Marvel encourages us to create innovative game. We have a lot of freedom, which is especially stimulating for the team,” says Olivier Proux, Executive Producer.
As of now, the press release does not contain any other information regarding the game or its release date. And for good reason: it is only at the pre-production stage, and the studio is still looking for various talents to join the team to participate in its development.
