EA Opens Cliffhanger Games, Will Work On Black Panther
Electronic Arts is opening a new studio out of Seattle, Washington, to work on Marvel’s Black Panther. Reports of Cliffhanger Games circulated the web last year.
Monolith Productions VP and studio head Kevin Stephens found the studio after previously working on Shadow of Mordor. Stephens has recruited talent working on Halo Infinite, God of War, Call of Duty, and others. Cliffhanger Games’ built a team with the value of “diversity, collaboration, and empowerment.”
“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,” Stephens said.
“We’re still early in development with a long road ahead, but we know the foundation to any great story is to build an experienced team with diverse voices and perspectives, and that’s what we want to build, especially with a superhero as important as Black Panther.”
