Black Panther Game Reportedly in Development
In recent years, Marvel games have been somewhat mixed. High points like Marvel’s Spider-Man were counterbalanced with relative flops like Marvel’s Avengers.
However, it looks like we might be in line for a game adaptation from a popular series that hasn’t yet moved from the big screen to a smaller screen.
VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb claims that a game based upon the Black Panther movies is in development.

Grubb stated this on his Game Mess Mornings show For Giant Bomb. “It is a one-player game. It is still in very early development. The game begins with Black Panther being dead. The player will then take on the challenge of becoming the new Black Panther.”
Grubb said, “It is probably being produced by the Seattle studio established by Monolith Productions vice-president and studio head Kevin Stephens. So yes, this game is published by EA.”
He suggested that Project Rainier, the current codename, would aim to duplicate the success of the Black Panther films, which earned around $1.3 billion worldwide.
Grubb went on to say more about the studio that is responsible for achieving this level of success. “They’re a brand new studio but have a lineage that goes back into those Middle Earth games (2017 Shadow of War and 2014 Shadow of Mordor) that people loved.”
Grubb suggested that the game would likely have an enormous scope and an open world. Grubb also discussed how it’s surprising that a Sony-affiliated company isn’t producing the game. Grubb had been involved with several Marvel releases, including Marvel’s Spider-Man. It announced the game’s arrival on PC at last month’s State of Play presentation.
