A Black Panther Open-World Game Is On The Way From EA

Still in “very early development”

New reports suggest that popular video game developers and publishers Electronic Arts are working on a new single-player open-world game based on Marvel’s Black Panther. 

According to Jeff Grubb, a journalist at Giant Bomb, EA’s Black Panther project will be a single-player-only title as the video game company aims to build on the success of other single-player titles such as Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. 

Juicy details regarding the game are being kept under wraps at this time except for the fact that the game is in “very early development.” Grubb went on to say that the game’s basic premise will see players completing various challenges in a bid to become the new Black Panther, after the death of an earlier incarnation at the start of the game. 

Presently, EA is referring to the game as Project Rainier, a name which it likely took from Mount Rainier in Washington. It’s meaningful considering the team handling the game’s development is said to be EA’s new Seattle studio where former Monolith Productions boss Kevin Stephens, is head. 

Stephens is no newcomer to acclaimed titles after overseeing the likes of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War during his time at Monolith. 

Although EA is yet to make any official announcement regarding the Black Panther game we expect it to break cover at one of the many upcoming game shows.
