The developers of the Dead Space remake have announced that the Iron Man game is now in production.
Last year, Electronic Arts announced plans to develop a game about Iron Man, one of Marvel’s most popular superheroes. At the time, the project was reported to be in pre-production. Now, the developers, i.e. the folks at EA Motive, have revealed that the actual production of the game has already started in full swing.
- The information was revealed during a Reddit AMA session, where the developers answered questions from fans. The event was primarily dedicated to the Dead Space remake, but players also asked about Iron Man.
- Sending the game off for full production makes sense, because once Dead Space is done, EA Motive can finally focus on another project.
- The studio’s website has several job openings, including three (Sound Programmer, AI Programmer, and Senior Game Programmer) for the team working on Iron Man.
- There are plenty of indications that there will also be a remake of Dead Space 2, so it’s possible that EA Motive will spend the next few years working on two projects in parallel. However, before that, the developers intend to go on a “well-deserved vacation”.
As of now, we don’t know much about the Iron Man game, but we’re optimistic about the project. EA Motive has a very good reputation (with the exception of Dead Space Remake, the team also developed Star Wars: Squadrons, which was warmly received), and the project is supervised by Olivier Proulx, the senior producer of the excellent Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Developers should seek advice from BioWare, whose Anthem proved disappointing to say the least, but that game’s flight system would be perfect for Iron Man.
In addition to Marvel’s Spider-Man series, big-budget Marvel-licensed Insomniac Games productions have failed in recent years. Flops include Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Marvel’s Avengers, and the aforementioned Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. As you can see, however, that didn’t deter Electronic Arts. In addition to Iron Man, EA is also working on a Black Panther game.
