EA/Marvel Game Plans

Electronic Arts and Marvel Entertainment announce a deal for "at least three" action/adventure games based on various Marvel properties. The first of these is the Iron Man game in the works at EA Motive. This was officially announced last month after a run as the second worst-kept Iron Man secret behind Tony Stark's secret identity. Now we learn another two or more such games will follow:
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) today announced it is collaborating with Marvel on a long term deal to develop at least three new action adventure games that will be available for consoles and PC. Each of these games will be their own original story set in the Marvel universe with the first title in-development being a single player, third person, action-adventure Iron Man game coming out of Motive Studios.

“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,” said Laura Miele, COO at EA. “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 Super Hero is known for.”

El Pit, Fallen Order is not an rpg. It’s Uncharted with a Star Wars setting and a surprising amount of backtracking.

Okay, I have never played it, looked too much like a typical console game to me. The reviews I read said something about it being an ARPG. So it is more like a Tomb Raider themed "press button at the right time" interactive movie? Never played Uncharted either but the videos I watched were pretty much like action scene "press X now to grab the next flying crate" after action scene "press A now to grab the next vine."

It's a Souls-like ARPG, yes, with elements of TR/Uncharted such as puzzles and action-climbing.

This makes it sound fun. And, when I googled it, the link to Steam said "80% off." But, that's outdated, it's back to full price. When it's $8 again, I'll grab it. Metroidvania style action adventure with some RPG elements? I haven't played a SW game since X-Wing vs TIE Fighter. This sounds like fun

They can re-use the engine/flight mechanic of Anthem for the IronMan game for sure.

Noooo! Hasn’t Disney learned what EA does to their IPs?
^^This!

First, EA went "single player is dead" and offered only Battlefront with many, many microtransactions. Then, after getting a lot of heat from Disney, they made the console RPG game Fallen Order which seems to have been good. And when they were about to lose the rights, they finally did a very good game called Squadrons and gave it no love at all despite this being something that could have lived and thrived with more missions, ships, and so on. With other words: EA dropping the ball and then insisting on never having dropped the ball. And Disney going like "Yeah, great, here, have another great franchise to misuse."

*also I know a guy currently testing a new SW game for EA. Can't say anything, but it's LARGE.
Is that the one where you manage a criminal enterprise as Jabba the Hutt? Because he's large.

It's an introspective point-and-click 2D journey through the underwater city on Naboo, where the player will explore the rich and complex tapestry of Gungan history. The player will be confronted with questions like: "What is racism?" and "Why do land creatures' poopy smell so badsa?"

I'd like a Punisher game that is true to the actual ethos of the Punisher.

That was my first thought too, but upon further reflection, Fallen Order was good, and SWBF2 is still an amazing game, even though some greedy people at the top tried to make it P2W (Although, for posterity, this system WAS disabled 1 day before launch).
