Iron Man Game

Electronic Arts has struck a deal that allows it to develop three games based on Marvel superhero properties. The first has already been announced: an Iron Man game from Dead Space remake team Motive Studio. It's going to be a single player, third-person experience that "taps into the rich history of Iron Man". The other two projects are unconfirmed at the time of writing.

However, rumours circulated earlier this year suggest one of the other two games will be based on Black Panther. This is separate from the unnamed Black Panther, Captain America crossover title from Amy Hennig that was revealed last month. EA's project based on the Wakanda leader will supposedly be a single player, open world, AAA experience. Back in July, Giant Bomb member Jeff Grubb said: "The game starts with Black Panther being dead and the player is going to take on the challenges of becoming the new Black Panther."

Publicly, the Marvel Games Twitter account has posted: "We’re thrilled to announce a multi-title collaboration between Marvel and EA to develop action-adventure games for consoles and PC! Each game will also be its own original story set in the Marvel Universe." EA has shown a renewed interest in single player games in more recent years, with the upcoming Dragon Age: Dreadwolf and a new Mass Effect title skipping any multiplayer implementation.

All three of these projects appear to be early in development, so don't expect to hear anything from them for a number of years. In the meantime, though, we have Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Marvel's Wolverine from Insomniac Games to look forward to. The former is still slated to release next year.
