Rumor: EA Developing Open-World Single-Player Black Panther Game

Rumor: EA Developing Open-World Single-Player Black Panther Game - News

There is a new rumor that Electronic Arts is developing an open-world single-player Black Panther game.

The rumor comes from reporter Jeff Grub who says the game is in early development and is "very likely" in production at the new EA studio formed by the previous Monolith Productions boss Kevin Stephens.

"It is a single-player game, it is in very early development, and the game starts with Black Panther being dead," said Grubb on his Game Mess podcast and transcribed by VideoGamesChronicle. "The player is going to take on the challenges of becoming the new Black Panther and that seems to be the set-up for the game."

He added, "They’re looking at making this a big open-world Black Panther game."

The game has a working title of Project Rainier and Grubb believes that is in reference to Mount Rainier in Seattle, Washington . That is where the new EA studio is located.

On one hand, it would be cool to run around protecting Wakanda as Black Panther. On the other hand, EA...

Also Monolith's last game, Shadow of War, had loot boxes in a single player game. So there's also that.

eh that sorta thing is usually the publishers idea. WB probably wanted those in. business decisions like those arent really reflective of the studio or their creatives. usually when EA makes a single player game nowadays they turn out alright its just that so much of their catalogue is live service shit and sports games.

Yeah, one can only hope that this title follows the lead that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order established for EA: single-player, offline playable, no lootboxes, no live service elements, no microtranctions.

EA has been able to bring out several good single player games recently. So I'm not gonna write it off as trash just yet.

Not necessarily. Remember the MCU started the Black Panther off by one dying and a new one replacing him, and T’Challa was the new one.
