A joint venture between Marvel and Electronic Arts has led to the announcement of their second collaborative project – a standalone Black Panther game. The game is being developed by Cliffhanger Games, a new Seattle-based studio under Electronic Arts.
The game promises to be an action-adventure extravaganza, offering a third-person perspective much like the popular Spider-Man games by Insomniac. Cliffhanger, in collaboration with Marvel, is striving to create a vast, interactive universe that enables players to step into the shoes of Wakanda’s guardian, the Black Panther.
Both Cliffhanger and Marvel Games are keen to construct every element of Wakanda, its technological advancements, its heroes, and an original storyline with an unparalleled level of detail and fidelity that honours the Black Panther universe. Nevertheless, Marvel and EA are keeping the rest of the specifics under wraps for the moment.
Leading the helm at Cliffhanger is Kevin Stephens, who previously held a comparable position at Monolith Productions, the company behind Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The team comprises veterans from Halo Infinite, God of War, and Call of Duty.
“We’re committed to offering fans an authentic and ultimate Black Panther journey, providing them greater narrative control than they’ve ever had in a story-centric video game,” says Stephens. “Wakanda presents a rich superhero playground, and our goal is to craft a phenomenal world for those who are passionate about Black Panther and desire to delve deep into Wakanda’s world just as we do.”
Speculation about a Black Panther game from EA has been circulating for a while. Last September, it was revealed that EA Motive, the studio responsible for the recent Dead Space remake, is working on an Iron Man game, which will also be a solo, third-person, action-adventure game. However, more specifics about these projects remain scarce, with no confirmed release dates for either game yet.
