Ninja Theory, the guys behind Disney: Infinity 3.0 and the divisive 2013 Devil May Cry reboot, are working on four different projects right now.
We’re looking forward to Hellblade. Find out what else this year promises in these upcoming PC games.
Presumably one of those is Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, a Norse-inspired psychological action game that looks deliciously dark, but no others have been officially announced. Ninja Theory were reportedly in charge of making new content for Disney: Infinity based on Rogue One, so perhaps they had extra staff on hand after Disney abruptly cancelled the series, and opted to start a new project rather than move them on to Hellblade.
Besides Disney: Infinity and DmC, the indie studio from Cambridge (UK, not US) have such hits in their back catalogue as Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and the PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword. Might the unannounced project be based on one of these? Feel free to speculate in the comments.
Anyway, the news came in thisrapid-fire interview, in which Game Informer spoke with Ninja Theory creative director Tameem Antoniades. It’s pretty funny and reveals a few other interesting tidbits, such as the fact that Ninja theory are “not really” considering DLC for Hellblade and that it won’t have any “Michael-transactions”, whatever they are.
Oh, and does Antoniades have a message for anyone still pissed at their take on Dante? “Genuinely, no.”
That’s probably sensible.
