EA have announced they are going to work with Marvel to create at least three “action adventure” games for consoles and PC.  The first of these, Iron Man, has already been announced.

Each of these games will be their own original stories set in the Marvel universe,” say EA so it doesn’t look like we’re getting an MCU for video games, just three unconnected titles.  Here’s the full statement:

Today, we announced we will collaborate with Marvel on a long-term deal to develop at least three new action adventure games that will be available for consoles and PC. Each of these games will be their own original stories set in the Marvel universe with the first title in development being a single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man game coming out of Motive Studios.“We have been long-time fans of Marvel and their impressive leadership, so this is a remarkable moment for our developers as well as our 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 Super Hero 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 far future.”

An interview on GI.Biz confirmed that Marvel are not trying to make an MCU in gaming, Iron Man won’t be linked to any other Marvel video game.

“We are here to do everything we can, 360, to help our collaborators bring their vision to life,” explained Bill Rosemann, the VP and creative director of Marvel Games.

“How can we help? Can we be a source of background? There has been six decades of Iron Man comic books, we can start with: ‘read these ten stories’. We are here for advice. We are here for talking about what game they want to make, and how the gameplay matches the wish fulfilment of the character… the set pieces, the music, the characters, what the story is about. People expect a great story from a Marvel and Motive game. It’s the heart of what we do. We will offer everything that we can to help give that Marvel perspective, to create that 100% authentic Marvel experience, so that when people play it they’re saying: ‘this was made by fans’.”
