EA's Chicago team will be producing a new game based on Marvel's comicbook characters.
The new super hero fighting game will be developed for PS3 and Xbox 360 and released next year.
EA Chicago is best known for its Fight Night games and recent title Def Jam: Icon - the team specifically prides itself on work driven by cutting-edge technology.
"We looked at past comic-based games to find out what was missing and what was needed to successfully translate the intensity, excitement and fiction from comics into fighting games," said Kudo Tsunoda, general manager and VP at EA Chicago. "We're challenging ourselves to make a game that delivers on the Super Hero promises of past top-tier fighting games."
