EA has announced Cliffhanger Games, a new studio that is developing a single-player action-adventure game with an original story based on Marvel’s Black Panther character, who is celebrating his 57th anniversary this month. The staff of Cliffhanger Games includes veterans from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Halo Infinite, God of War, Call of Duty, and other top franchises.

“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 Super Hero 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,” said lead Kevin Stephens.

“It’s an incredibly rare opportunity to build a new team around the values of diversity, collaboration, and empowerment,” he added.

“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.”

Led by Kevin Stephens (Monolith Productions), Cliffhanger 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.

As we begin this remarkable journey, we are excited to be working with Marvel Games to ensure that we craft every aspect of Wakanda, its technology, its heroes, and our own original story with the attention to detail and authenticity that the world of Black Panther deserves.
