This week’s Game Awards show at the Microsoft Theater truly opened the door to next year’s console generation as the company themselves presented the upcoming system for Xbox to kick off the show. Showcasing the look of the forthcoming Xbox Series X console, it wouldn’t be much to really flaunt without some evidence of what the machine can actually do, right?
So alongside Microsoft, developer Ninja Theory following the console’s debut took the stage to announce Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. Doing so, the English studio presented a full-length trailer of what the game is with full in-game rendering of the project’s engine. You can see for yourself in the trailer below:
Ninja Theory’s predecessor for the series initially launched for PlayStation 4 exclusively, but follow suit the project then reached Xbox One as well as a surprising well held up Nintendo Switch port as well. As for the platform this game will be releasing on, it is unsure as of yet whether the title will a exclusive to the Xbox platform (console and PC), or arrive as a multiplatform release later on.
To dress the matter further regarding an Xbox brand exclusive, head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty shared to have interests in creating exclusive IPs based on the sequel of the acquired studio’s projects. Specifically referencing to Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds, he distresses that the series that can spawn from the first installment the studio “could build” from leading forward. So possibly the same can be said for Hellblade II as time goes on into 2020.
In other Ninja Theory-related news, the developer’s upcoming online-only, melee-focused braler Bleeding Edge has been announced to arrive to Xbox One and PC on March 24th. The project will include cross-play between all supported platforms alike the previously held playtests for the game.
