Electronic Arts would be working on a game around Marvel hero Black Panther

Geoff Grubb states that during a Giant Bomb podcast. According to him, the game is just under development and it is a single player game that takes place in an open game world. According to Grubb, the game starts when Black Panther dies, and players must prove themselves to become the next Black Panther.

The game would be known internally as ‘Project Rainier’, based on Mount Rainier in Seattle, which is home to a new EA studio working on the game. The studio is already known to be headed by Kevin Stephens, the former boss of Monolith Productions, known for the Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor games. At that announcement, it was already said that the studio would focus on open world games.
