The other Ninja Theory project
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is not the only project Ninja Theory has underway, and we are not talking about Bleeding Edge. The developer, now part of Xbox Game Studios, works on Project: Mara, a video game in which they will continue to delve into the topic of mental illness. For some time now, at Ninja Theory they have been working in productions with smaller proportions. Thanks to this system they were able to develop Hellblade on a tighter budget.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 does not have a release date, but it will go on sale on Xbox Series X and PC. As it could not be otherwise, being a product of Xbox Game Studios, the title will be available on the Microsoft subscription service from the first day. This gives Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members the opportunity to access content at any time. As if that were not enough, starting in September, Project xCloud, Microsoft’s cloud technology, will be integrated into Ultimate.
