Developer Ninja Theory, known for games like Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Odyssey To The West , are developing a new game called HellBlade. Even though both games have similar titles, it will not be a sequel to Ninja Theory’s previous game. The game was announced at Sony’s press conference on GamesCom and is going to be on the PS4.
Ninja Theory decided to self-publish this game, according to Dom Matthews from Ninja Theory is was that “Certain types of game are very difficult to make for AAA retail without being watered down or otherwise compromised for a mass audience. This is especially true of sword-based combat games or games of a distinctive style or unusual subject matter. We want to make a smaller, more focused game experience that is uncompromising in its combat, art and story, and deliver this digitally at a lower price.”
Matthews also added “I want to say that it is incredibly exciting for me and the team at Ninja Theory to be creating Hellblade. Hellblade is being made for our fans. Fans of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved and DmC: Devil May Cry. If any of our games have found a special place in your heart, then our aim is that Hellblade will too.” No release date for HellBlade was announced, it seemed that the game will be out late 2015 or 2016.
