A Black Panther game codenamed Project Rainier is currently in development by a new EA studio helmed by ex-Monolith VP Kevin Stephens.
EA are working on a Black Panther video game according to reliable industry insider and journalist Jeff Grubb . The game, codenamed Project Rainier is currently early in development at a brand new, unnamed EA studio, that was founded last year by former Monolith Productions VP Kevin Stephens.
Stephens worked at Monolith where he oversaw Lord of the Rings games Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
Black Panther video game will reportedly be a single-play, open-world, action-adventure where the player becomes the new Black Panther.
Black Panther character is no stranger to video games. We got to play as this hero in Fortnite, Marvel's Avengers and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 but Black Panther never got his own game, meaning EA's title will be the first Black Panther game ever made.
Given that the project is in very early development, it's going to be a while before we get to see this one and even longer before we get to play it. Big, AAA games take a long time to develop so it's probably safe to expect Black Panther sometime in 2024 or even later.
Of course, first and foremost we want a great Black Panther game so the development team should take all the time they need to deliver a proper masterpiece.
Marvel recently revealed a new trailer for their upcoming film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the long-awaited sequel to their hit Black Panther. Though, it's worth mentioning that the game probably won't have much connection to the film's plot.
Black Panther game is yet to be officially announced by EA so we don't know much about the release platforms but expect it on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
