Ninja Theory reveals their ‘brutal’ new PS4 title Hellblade
Ninja Theory has announced Hellblade, their “brutal” new title based on Celtic mythology currently in development for the PlayStation 4. The developers announced the game at this years Gamescom conference, and it came as a bit of a surprise when they didn’t announce a DMC sequel. Described by the developer as an “independent AAA” title, Ninja Theory intends for Hellblade to deliver blockbuster production values in an indie game.
“We are embracing the creative spirit that comes with independence without letting go of the stunning production values that we are known for,” wrote the developer. “It’s not indie, it’s not AAA. This is a third way. It’s independent AAA.”
“It’s about making a more focused game experience that isn’t trying to be all things to all people but satisfies a particular gaming itch. It’s about being in command of our creativity so that we can give you what you want from us at a lower price.”
Ninja Theory adds that Hellblade is still very early in production, and a release date was not provided yet.
