EA's Upcoming BLACK PANTHER Game Will Be Open World According To A New Job Listing EA's Upcoming BLACK PANTHER Game Will Be Open World According To A New Job Listing

Unrelated to the forthcoming Black Panther and Captain America WWII video game from Skydance New Media, EA is also working on a third-person Black Panther game.

An EA job posting has been discovered, which strongly suggests that the developer's upcoming Black Panther game will be open-world.

First announced in July 2023, EA's Cliffhanger Studios is spearheading development on an original, third-person, single-player Black Panther game in collaboration with Marvel Games

Now, there's a new job listing on the EA website for a Principal Sandbox Designer, and the description states that the new hire would be working on the Black Panther game.

This makes sense considering that Cliffhanger was created last year by EA to specifically work on the Black Panther video game.

Additionally, the job listing states the position will be, "Reporting to the Design Manager, the Sr. Technical Designer Sandbox will be instrumental in designing and populating encounters, systems, and gameplay within a dynamic and evolving open world."

"Drawing upon a deep understanding of technical design principles and a passion for creating immersive sandbox experiences, this role demands close collaboration with design teams, AI engineering, and technical art departments to bring our game world to life."

The gaming community has responded to the news in mixed fashion. While there is undoubtedly curiosity in exploring the fictional city of Wakanda, most players have become disenchanted with open world games after so many of them have been released in the past ten years.

In a press release released back in 2023, Cliffhanger studio head Kevin Stephens stated, "We’re dedicated to delivering fans a definitive and authentic Black Panther experience, giving them more agency and control over their narrative than they have ever experienced in a story-driven video game."

"Wakanda is a rich superhero sandbox, and our mission is to develop an epic world for players who love Black Panther and want to explore the world of Wakanda as much as we do."

Of course, this isn't the only AAA Black Panther game that Marvel currently has in development.

The curtain was recently pulled back on Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra, which will see Steve Rogers and Azzuri, fighting Hydra Nazi's in the streets of Paris.

Black Panther will also be one of the playable characters in the upcoming Overwatch-like Marvel Rivals 6v6 shooter.

Are you looking forward to the new Black Panther game from EA or are you on the fence now that it seems it will be open world? Let us know in the comment section below.

@TheFinestSmack - I don't want to accept there's another useless list, especially one not written by a DC fan

Is this the "no white employees allowed" game?

@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - Something may okay, but really... iT wAs A mIcRO AgGrEsSiON!!!
marvel72 - 4/15/2024, 2:26 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (two white guys) create Black Panther but no white people are allowed to help create the game.

Scary stuff to think what's around the corner say a decade from now...

@FireandBlood - she’s an associate NARRATIVE designer of the game.

The video is wrong saying she's the lead developer but if EA are hiring people like her to help on the NARRATIVE of this game, ain't optimistic.

This reeks of "Lady Gaga is the creative director at polaroid, I like the Gaga songs, but what the [frick] does she know about cameras?!"

Until I hear more it's a miss.

@FireandBlood - that's probably the best argument you've ever given. No sarcasm. You're owning it.
DarthOmega - 4/15/2024, 1:54 PM
That damn trailer they showed with Cap and Black Panther was so dope. I just hope the game itself looks as good. It was a pretty decent graphical leap
grif - 4/15/2024, 1:57 PM
you woke as [frick] and like making games? no whities!!!!
HashTagSwagg - 4/15/2024, 2:00 PM
This is the one from that racist developer, right?
harryba11zack - 4/15/2024, 2:04 PM
The developers sound like lovely people, since they are aiming for open world, hopefully they will also let you create your own Black panther User Comment Image

A game by black racists folks aimed for just black folks, i reckon, huh?

At least ONE cmb.user quickly comes to my mind who'll buy it Day ONE! :D
UncleHarm1 - 4/15/2024, 3:21 PM
@Doomsday8888 - Oh no, one game out of the million to come out in the next few years is aimed at a different demographic than me! Better get online and pretend I cared about the character before this!
mountainman - 4/15/2024, 3:33 PM
@UncleHarm1 - If only Black gamers buy this, it’s not going to perform as well as if it appealed to everyone. It’s ironic, because a lot of non-Black people like the character Black Panther. Seems odd to shut out a portion of your potential market because you’re racist.
Doomsday8888 - 4/15/2024, 3:42 PM
The problem is not the target audience, dummy.
It's the principle behind the making of this videogame.

But yes, let's make things by black people and only by them and just for black people and thus creating "safe spaces" for them and let's also give whites -sorry- yts or palm-colored folks safe spaces where they can make things for yts only for yts.

Like bathrooms, cinema, bus stations etc...

Did wonders the last time! :)

@UncleHarm1 -
Catering a game to a demographic would be fine, if you didn't go purposefully out of your way to actively be racist towards those who fall into your general audience even if they are not your intended demographic.

It's pure and utter retardation to actively be racist to an entire group of people willing to pay you money for your game or movie. You are only harming yourself through your own stupidity.
UncleHarm1 - 4/15/2024, 6:04 PM
@Doomsday8888 - A game made by black people doesn't appeal to white people?? What are y'all smoking lol
Doomsday8888 - 4/15/2024, 6:13 PM
I'll tell you what's racist @UncleHarm1

The game could be great, fact is...The developers of this game aren't allowing white people to work on it, tell me why?

Also, while you're at it, remind me again who created the character of Black Panther?
UncleHarm1 - 4/15/2024, 7:58 PM
@Doomsday8888 - Hundreds of people "created" the character over the years. The 1966 version is not the character featured in any movies or video games.

If a team of all white people create a character does that mean it's racist? Or that it doesn't appeal to non-white audiences? I noticed your Superman pfp, or you could throw in probably 90% of all comic book characters.

Another Assassins Creed clone, I guess.
IronMan616 - 4/15/2024, 2:26 PM
lmao, no whites allowed to play this game.
marvel72 - 4/15/2024, 2:37 PM
@IronMan616 - No whites allowed to play the game, well that will help with sales.
RitoRevolto - 4/15/2024, 3:06 PM
Aww, the palm-colored folk are crying again. 🥺
FireandBlood - 4/15/2024, 3:09 PM
@RitoRevolto - BLACK Panther consistently has them pissing their draws 🤣
RitoRevolto - 4/15/2024, 3:23 PM
@FireandBlood - It's just so sad and miserable at this point lol.
thedrudo - 4/15/2024, 3:26 PM
@RitoRevolto - I’ll just say if your business is created to make money, I wouldn’t be going about it this way. But it’s not my money to burn so good luck to everyone involved.
Doomsday8888 - 4/15/2024, 3:52 PM
The funny thing is we all know that if this game flops then they are gonna blame it on the "Le palm-colored folks", lel.

Like the pikachu face the 2019 Charlie's Angels cast made when they looked at the box office and they blamed THEIR flop because no man showed up.

Or the Ocean 8 numbers.
Or the female-led Ghostbuster movie.

Each time...0 accountability.

But hey, that's the clown world we live in, so buckle up! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
DeadClunge - 4/15/2024, 4:36 PM
@Doomsday8888 - wait weren't you crying on the last thread about users turning the comments into a race argument yet you're here doing exactly that? 🤨

Look at the meme you posted but the term snow bunnies got you in your feelings?

😅🤣 you can't make this shit up
Doomsday8888 - 4/15/2024, 4:43 PM
Dude if you don't know the backstory of this shit then just shut the f*ck up.

Sit this one out, lil buddy, everyone else here got it, no wonder the people creating division on this site are so chill about it, color me...surprised.
DeadClunge - 4/15/2024, 5:14 PM
@Doomsday8888 - I know the back story u dumb [frick] but one idiot doesn't mean you become the very thing you were crying you fragile POS.

Now it makes sense why I've never seen you talk out against the normal shit heads here. You straight up agree with them but only get a back bone when u feel everyone is on your side.

Stay fragile
Killuminatic - 4/15/2024, 5:21 PM
@Doomsday8888 - Aren’t you Pakistani?
Doomsday8888 - 4/15/2024, 5:28 PM
If you're aware of the backstory THEN WHY DON'T YOU SAY SOMETHING??? Why radio silence on your part?

Why, because it's one of *your people* discriminating this time???

If you get assblasted from my meme then that means we are on the SAME side but only if you get assblasted when the roles are reversed as well, not just when shit touches your race, cause in that case it just means that you only care about your own people, ergo...you're a racist f*ck.

For what it's worth, man...i still have to make-up my mind on you, i can't fully picture you as that other dumbass here but still...prove right or wrong, it's up to you tbh.

You wanna create unity or division?
