Electronic Arts could be working on an Iron Man game

This means that EA has at least six upcoming single-player video games, three of which are "unconfirmed".


EA and single-player games are like oil and water, they don't mix. However, in recent years, EA has started to warm up to the idea of single-player games.

We're not quite sure if EA can pull off an Iron Man game, but the company at least deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Case in point, one of EA's biggest upcoming projects is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which is a single-player game. If we believe the leaks, Cal Cestis' return will be out by March. However, it appears that EA is also working with Disney on one of its other more popular properties. Specifically, Marvel.

Last week, we heard through the grapevine that EA is working on a single-player Black Panther title. Now, we just found out that it's not the only one. Serial leaker, Jeff Grubb, let us in on another EA secret, claiming that EA is "making another Marvel game that's single-player." Tom Henderson later corroborated Grubb's claims.

Here's what the industry insider had to say:

I've heard a few rumors that it's Iron Man but I never had anything concrete to fully report on. Put this heavily under the 'rumor' category for now and if I hear/see more information that's concrete I'll report on it properly.

So, there you have it - EA "might" be working on an Iron Man game.

A good Iron Man game could help make the loss of Iron Man in the MCU sting less.

We're still amazed to see EA change its mind about single-player games. Make no mistake, EA is still making more money from its live-service games, as revealed in a recent earnings report. But, it's clear that EA finally sees the value of single-player titles.

At the moment, EA will release Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and the upcoming Dead Space remake by next year. However, the EA subsidiary, Respawn Entertainment, is believed to be working on a single-player Apex Legends game. This is in addition to the Star Wars-themed strategy game with Greg Foerstch's Bit Reactor. If you add Iron Man and Black Panther to that tally, there are at least six upcoming single-player games by EA. Not to mention, fans can look forward to Dragon Age 4 and Mass Effect 5 as well.

As for Marvel, plenty of video games are in the works based on the billion-dollar property. The biggest ones are Insomniac Games' Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Marvel's Wolverine. We are likely still years away from seeing both games come out. Luckily, one will launch later this year in Marvel's Midnight Suns.
