EA to make at least three more games with Marvel and Disney

Video game publisher Electronic Arts has just announced that it will collaborate with Marvel for three games. With Iron Man currently in the pipeline, the publisher has confirmed that two more titles are in the works. Canadian studio Motive will oversee the development of the unnamed Iron Man title. Meanwhile, the new entries will reportedly follow brand-new stories of characters from the Marvel universe. As to which characters the other games will follow, Black Panther is a strong contender.

Executive vice president at Marvel Games, Jay Ong had the following to say about the deal:

“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. 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 superhero is known for.”

EA has a long-standing partnership with Marvel’s parent company Disney. After developing a bunch of Star Wars games for the media giant, Disney recently opened the series to other developers. In other marvel game news, Spider-Man Miles Morales will release on PC in a few weeks. Developer Insomniac Games will also share news about the in-development Wolverine game soon.
