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

From GI.biz: "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. Following the success of the PlayStation Spider-Man games, and now with big partnerships with major AAA studios, were we about to see the company try and repeat the trick in video games?

The answer was no. And according to Bill Rosemann, the VP and creative director of Marvel Games, such a move would be detrimental to the company’s overall ambition."

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.

Insomniac just basically copied the formula from PS2 version of Spider-man 2. Everything was jacked up to 11 but yeah the basic formula was already there.

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

ClayRules2012663d ago

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

ABizzel1663d ago

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

Lionsguard663d ago

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

ClayRules2012663d ago

Yeah, the flying was really good/solid.

THPS 3 & 4 canceled for Diablo II Remake, and now Crash 5 canceled, too? Ah yes, we need to focus only on Call of Duty, that's the Activision way.
