EA Black Box has or had an unannounced game in its pipelines at some point in the recent future or past. Go figure. Here’s how we know:
An EA technical animation director has cited work on a Black Box studio “original 3rd-person action” game in his LinkedIn profile — where all these cool bits of info come from. According to the blurb, the game features “one-on-many” battles, fatalities, and even some mild world navigation elements — “vaulting, climbing, jumping and ledge-navigation.”
Sounds like Def Jam. But it could also be a Jurassic Park game for all we know. One on “many” velociraptor action does sound quite tasty right now. Screw cover mechanics.
