EA and Marvel to create AAA Iron Man game: "It’s about giving developers freedom"

From "Back when Square Enix’s The Avengers was unveiled at E3, a few of us were wondering: could this be the start of the Marvel Interactive Universe?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has dominated cinema (and now TV) for nearly 15 years, with its huge comic book universe of interconnecting stories, characters and franchises.

I like that this would be totally original in design, like what Insomniac did with Spider-man. Not based on an existing movie or show concept. that already makes it better than the 7th gen release that Sega did.

EA already made an Iron Man game. It was called Anthem lol.

Lol, oh how I remember that game…

Kind of feels they chose Iron Man because they didn't want to waste the Anthem flying assets

That's exactly why they're making this. The groundwork is already there and done. They only need to choose/create a story, create a city map, and ensure the mechanics are there.

The flying and combat in Anthem were never the issue with that game so I expect Iron Man to be adequate there, and I also want a PSVR2 mode since Sony's not making their sequel to Iron Mna.

But I had multiplayer :p so that’s why it sucked

Well, the flying was the best part in that game.

ClayRules2012252d ago

Yeah, the flying was really good/solid.

If this were just about any publisher besides EA, I would be excited.
