Motive Studio (Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars: Squadrons, Dead Space- 2023),  also known as EA Motive, is the EA subsidiary studio working on the Iron Man game, which was first announced back in September 2022.

There haven't been many updates on the project since that initial announcement and now, news has emerged that Motive is joining the list of EA studios that will develop Battlefield games.

Motive join Criterion, DICE, and Ripple Effect as EA subsidiary studios that all work on Battlefield games as the company tried to compete with Call of Duty.

So what does this mean for the Iron Man game?

Motive studio general manager Patrick Klaus stated, "In parallel, development continues to move forward on our Iron Man project, led by Olivier Proulx (Executive Producer) and Ian Frazier (Creative Director). "

"The team made excellent progress this year, hitting a major internal milestone and laying a robust foundation for the journey ahead. Iron Man remains an important priority for Motive, and I’m very proud of the work we’ve accomplished so far."

At the time of the project's unveiling, it was described as, "an all-new single-player, third-person, action-adventure Iron Man video game."

 "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," said Bill Rosemann, Vice President and Creative Director at Marvel Games.

Last October, Motive confirmed that they were the EA studio working on the game and that it would be using Unreal Engine 5.

At that time, Motive released a positive statement, sharing, "We're still early in pre-production and taking our time to make sure we set the best possible foundation for development. But already, we’re finding so many opportunities to explore story, design and gameplay with Iron Man, and it’s exciting to see the fantasy start coming alive."

Yet earlier this year in February, EA announced plans to lay off over 670 workers and move away from intellectual property games which often carry a pricey licensing fee.

This led many gamers to worry about the status of the company's Iron Man game but it seems that the title is still in development, despite a portion of Motive now being dedicated to the Battlefield franchise.

In addition to the Iron Man game, EA also has a third-person, single-player Black Panther game in development, which is different from the recently revealed Black Panther and Captain America WWII game, Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra.
