EA Black Box (formerly known as Black Box Games) is a video game developer founded in 1998 by former employees of Radical Entertainment. The developers were primarily known for the Need for Speed and Skate series.

Black Box has previously developed for game publishers such as Sega, Midway Games, and Electronic Arts. After being acquired in June 2002, it became an entirely owned subsidiary of EA Canada.

EA Black Box announced on 19 December 2008 that it would be shutting down its Vancouver studio location and relocating operations of the Black Box studio to EA Canada's Burnaby facilities, as part of Electronic Arts' worldwide consolidation plans. Black Box remains a part of EA's Games Label, and is independent of the EA Sports studio also located within the Burnaby facility. The Need for Speed series is now being led by Criterion Games, makers of the Burnout series, while EA Canada and Black Box are restructuring and refocusing towards online and free-to-play games.
