EA’s New Iron Man Game Starts Production

Announced back in September 2022, EA Motive has officially announced they have started production on their brand-new Iron Man game. The single-player-focused action game is aiming to ape the care and attention for the source material that was seen in Rocksteady’s Arkham games, so it may be a long while before any gameplay is shown off.

EA’s New Iron Man Game Starts ProductionOn a recent Reddit AMA dedicated mainly to fan questions regarding the highly praised Dead Space Remake, developers EA Motive confirmed that their single-player Iron Man game had started production. Originally announced via a Tweet in September 2022, EA Motive were “thrilled” to announce their collaboration with Marvel Studios and had started early development on an “all-new single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man video game”. Well, it seems that the early-development period is over and the studio has dived straight into the production phase.

In response to a now deleted comment, developers at EA Motive said: “We have an amazing team at Motive that has started working on Iron Man and you can rest assured that it’s in great hands!” Unfortunately, this was the only mention of the upcoming superhero game, and details remain thin as to what fans can expect to see when the game finally launches, but it is good news that development seems to be running smoothly.


As confirmed in their reply, the new IP will be developed by a separate EA Motive team and not the ones who recently rebuilt Dead Space from the ground up. In the same response, the team was keen to relay that they would “be interested in continuing our work on the Dead Space franchise. Our Core group is passionate about the brand and we need to discuss what’s the right next step for us”. However, they also added the caveat that “There’s numerous factors that need to be taken into account at a studio and company level but first, the team will take a well deserved vacation before determining what’s next”.

So, while gamers and developers alike are eager to see more current-gen Dead Space content, it may be some time before anything new materialises. That being said, the AMA is a great look at the behind-the-scenes development that went into the fantastic Dead Space Remake – giving plenty of insights into the thought processes behind what to keep and what to change, as well as hopes of remaking the sequels in the future.


Marvel fans should expect a long wait before hearing anything new about the Iron Man game, as EA Motive is hoping to replicate Rocksteady’s success with Batman by allowing players to truly feel like they are embodying the Iron Man. And such dedication takes time.
