EA (Electronic Arts) announced on Monday that its new studio, Cliffhanger Games, is collaborating with Marvel Games to create a third-person, single-player Black Panther game.
The forthcoming action-adventure game, according to Cliffhanger Games, will allow fans of the superhero franchise to explore the vast world of Wakanda.
Former Monolith Productions studio director Kevin Stephens is in charge of the development studio. Stephens stated in today’s announcement that the game will provide players with “more agency and control over their narrative than they have ever experienced in a story-driven video game.”
Stephens continued, “We want our game to allow players to experience what it’s like to be worthy of the Black Panther mantle in unique, story-driven ways, and we want Cliffhanger Games to empower everyone on our team as we work together to bring this incredible world to life.”
Cliffhanger Games refused to reveal specific information about the upcoming game, including its title, plot elements, and release date.
The announcement of the game coincides with Marvel’s 57th anniversary of Black Panther’s first comic book appearance. In 2018, Marvel Studios released the first “Black Panther” film, which grossed billions of dollars worldwide.
The sequel, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” premiered on Disney+ in November 2022 and was the most-watched Marvel premiere by streaming hours.
Marvel has recently partnered with major studios and publishers to create character-based video games, including Sony’s Wolverine and Spider-Man 2 games. Motive Studio is also developing an Iron Man video game.
