With Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 dropping this past weekend, everyone seems to have caught a case of superhero fever, including EA, which dropped an update on Motive’s new Iron Man game, which has been rather silent since the game’s announcement last year. This marks the third full game developed by EA Motive, which previously worked on Star Wars: Squadrons and this year’s Dead Space remake, which was lauded with plenty of critical acclaim on its release.
The latest update on Iron Man came from a blog post by EA Motive, General Manager, Patrick Klaus, confirming that the game will be developed using the Unreal Engine 5. This marks the first time EA Motive will have worked with external tech, given that both Star Wars: Squadrons and Dead Space were developed using EA’s in-house Frostbite Engine.
It’ll come as no surprise that Iron Man is still confirmed to be in early pre-production, especially given that it’s been less than a year since Dead Space launched.
Considering Unreal Engine 5 is one of the most impressive-looking game engines out there, it’ll be interesting to see what Motive put out for Marvel’s high-flying tech genius. Though we’d wager, their past work on Star Wars: Squadrons and Dead Space’s zero gravity sequences can only prove favorable.
