New Black Panther Game Coming From Former Shadow Of Mordor Devs

Turns out the rumors were true and Electronic Arts is in fact working on a new single player Black Panther game. It’s coming from the publisher’s new Cliffhanger Games studio formed by industry veterans, including developers from Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor studio, Monolith Productions.

The announcement includes almost no real information about the game—no release window, gameplay details, or even concept art. Like a lot of big budget projects that get announced way ahead of time these days as companies compete to attract talent, Black Panther is “still early in development with a long road ahead.”

“We’re dedicated to delivering fans a definitive and authentic Black Panther experience, giving them more agency and control over their narrative than they have ever experienced in a story-driven video game,” Kevin Stephens, former Monolith studio head, said in a press release. “Wakanda is a rich superhero sandbox, and our mission is to develop an epic world for players who love Black Panther and want to explore the world of Wakanda as much as we do.”

News of the Black Panther game was first reported last year by journalist and industry insider Jeff Grubb during a Giant Bomb’s Game Mess Mornings stream. Grub claimed EA was working on a game with the goal of building on the success Respawn garnered from its 2019 single-player open-world Star War game, Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s not yet clear if that will just apply to the ambitions of the Black Panther game’s story or open-world-style gameplay as well.
