Marvel just released the first look at the highly anticipated upcoming film Black Panther. Wakanda Forever, but it looks like that’s not all that’s new with the IP. EA is currently making a Black Panther game, according to Jeff Grub, a well-known source of early news about upcoming projects.
The game is said to be in the early stages of development and is being made at a new studio in Seattle. Which was started by Kevin Stephens, who used to be VP of Monolith Productions. After the death of Wakanda’s last hero, the player-controlled character will become the new Black Panther.
At this point, not much is known about the game, and EA hasn’t said whether or not it is being made at any of their studios.
A new EA studio might be working on a single-player Black Panther game.
Even though EA has worked on big IPs like Star Wars, it hasn’t made a mark in the superhero genre yet. As a character, Black Panther hasn’t been used much in video games. Except for the rare appearance in a Marvel fighting game or Marvel’s Avengers.
The Ryan Coogler-directed MCU movie was thought to be one of the best in the series, and it was even nominated for several Oscars. The sequel is set to come out in November 2022, and it’s already one of the most-anticipated MCU movies.
Grubb says that the studio is looking at a single-player mode similar to Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man games. But since the game is still in its early stages of development, things may change as the game is made.
