Marvel Games has announced (via ComicBookMovie.com) that they're teaming up with Motive Studio to collaborate on an all-new single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man video game.

The title is currently in early development (meaning it's likely a long way off from arriving in stores), and it's said that it will feature an original narrative that taps into Iron Man's rich comic book history to "[channel] the complexity, charisma, and creative genius of Tony Stark," all while "enabling players to feel what it’s like to truly play as Iron Man."

Olivier Proulx is leading the Motive Studio team and previously worked on Guardians of the Galaxy. Joining him are industry veterans like Ian Frazier, Maëlenn Lumineau, and JF Poirier. 

"We are thrilled to collaborate with the talented team at Motive Studio to bring their original vision of one of Marvel’s most important, powerful and beloved characters," Bill Rosemann, Vice President and Creative Director at Marvel Games said today.

"Their experience delivering both established entertainment worlds and thrilling gameplay - combined with their authentic passion for the armored icon - will fuel our quest to deliver a love letter to a legendary hero in the form of the ultimate Iron Man video game."

Proulx adds, "It’s an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to make a video game based on one of the most iconic Super Heroes in entertainment today. We have a great opportunity to create a new and unique story that we can call our own. Marvel is encouraging us to create something fresh. We have a lot of freedom, which is so engaging for the team."

Iron Man is only in pre-production, meaning we're probably at least half a decade from getting hands-on with it. This is all part of Marvel Games' new collaboration with Electronic Arts, with this set to be the first of several new titles. Recently, we learned that a Captain America/Black Panther team up is on the way, along with the previously announced Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine games.

Hopefully, this will be a lot better than those SEGA-produced movie tie-ins. With the current generation of consoles, though, we've got no doubt the game will do Tony Stark justice. Marvel's Avengers offered a glimpse at what that might look like, though we'd like Iron Man to surpass that.
