Electronic Arts announced a new, internal development studio this morning. Named Cliffhanger Games, the studio is led by Kevin Stephens (Monolith Productions) and has already brought together accomplished talent with leaders from the critically acclaimed and innovative action-adventure game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, along with veterans of top franchises including Halo Infinite, God of War, Call of Duty and others.
The team at Cliffhanger is developing an original, third-person, single-player Black Panther game in collaboration with Marvel Games. Their goal is to build an expansive and reactive world that empowers players to experience what it is like to take on the mantle of Wakanda’s protector, the Black Panther.
Stephens offered the following statement via a press release from EA:
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.
