Electronic Arts and Marvel Team Up for New Games

Electronic Arts announced today that it is collaborating with Marvel on a long-term deal to develop at least three new action-adventure games that will be available for consoles and PCs.

Each of these games will have its own original story set in the Marvel universe. Motive Studios’ first title in development is a single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man game.

“We have been long-time fans of Marvel and their impressive leadership, so this is a remarkable moment for our developers, players, and fans,” said Laura Miele, COO at EA.

“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 superhero 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. 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 near future.”

Developed in collaboration with Marvel, the Iron Man game will feature an original narrative that taps into the character’s rich history, channeling Tony Stark’s complexity, charisma, and creative genius. It will enable players to experience what it’s like to truly play as Iron Man.

The team is being led by Olivier Proulx, who brings experience working on past Marvel titles like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and is joined by a dedicated team of passionate industry veterans, including Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier at the studio.

Electronic Arts develops and delivers games, content, and online services for Internet-connected consoles, mobile devices, and personal computers.

EA is recognized for its portfolio of brands, such as EA SPORTS FIFA, Battlefield, Apex Legends, The Sims, Madden NFL, Need for Speed, Titanfall, Plants vs. Zombies, and F1.

Marvel Entertainment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, is one of the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment companies. It is built on a proven library of more than 8,000 characters featured in a variety of media for over eighty years.

Marvel utilizes its character franchises in entertainment, licensing, publishing, games, and digital media.
