EA is making a Black Panther game, and they’re setting up a new studio to make it.
The new studio, Cliffhanger Games, is based in Seattle and has a chunk of veterans from Monolith Productions, the studio behind the Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War titles, both are solid third-person action games that work with an established license.
The studio will be led by Kevin Stephens, who worked on both shadow titles in addition to Batman Arkham Origins. Speaking on a blog on EA’s site, Stephens said:
“We’re dedicated to giving fans a definitive and authentic Black Panther experience, giving them more agency and control over their narratives than they’ve experienced in a story driven video game. The Wakanda is a rich superhero sandbox, and our mission is to create an epic world for players who love Black Panther and want to explore the world of Wakanda as we do.
The press mailer revealed that the Black Panther The game aims to “build an expansive and reactive world that empowers players to experience what it’s like to take on the mantle of Wakanda’s protector, the Black Panther. We’ve created every aspect of Wakanda, the technology it, its heroes, and our own original story with the attention to detail and authenticity befitting the world of Black Panther.”
It doesn’t give anything away, but at least we know where the game is set.
It was a golden age for Marvel games. Guardians of the Galaxy found an audience, Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the best PS5 games out there, and Marvel Snap still eating my whole life. With this, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and even the final release of wondersof Wolverine, I’m almost a good note away from wearing a cape and running around the neighborhood.
