There have been a lot of different games based on Marvel heroes in the shadow of the popularity that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Games like Insomniac’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales were big hits for PlayStation, while others like Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel’s Avengers had varying results. But it looks like another Marvel hero will be getting his own game from the developers of the Shadow of Mordor development team. Get ready for a trip to Wakanda in a new Black Panther game.
Electronic Arts has confirmed that they are making a single-player original action-adventure game based on Marvel’s Black Panther with their studio Cliffhanger Games, in collaboration with Marvel Games. The studio includes industry veterans that have worked on games like Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, as well as other major game releases like Halo Infinite, Call of Duty, and God of War. The announcement came from a quick teaser shared over social media by EA on its various accounts, announcing the game and showing the iconic Black Panther symbol and necklace. The game currently has no specific details confirmed nor does it have any gameplay or cinematic trailer that shows anything about it.

Via a press release, former head of Monolith Studio Kevin Stephens talked about his excitement about being involved with the new Black Panther game. “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… 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.”
The Black Panther game was originally reported to be in development back in 2022 when rumors were passed around about it at various outlets following news about multiple games. It was only recently that the publisher had acknowledged the game’s existence, with many speculating about it beforehand. Kevin went on “It’s an incredibly rare opportunity to build a new team around the values of diversity, collaboration, and empowerment. We want our game to enable players to feel 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 collaborate to bring this amazing world to life.”
