A follow-up to Ninja Theory's Hellblade is on the way

A follow-up to Ninja Theory's Hellblade is on the way

Microsoft-owned developer Ninja Theory has revealed a sequel to its critically-acclaimed 2017 title Hellblade.

The project, dubbed Senua's Saga: Hallblade 2, was revealed at last night's Game Awards and is coming to the Big M's new hardware, the Xbox Series X, the console previous called Project Scarlett.

The title is set to release at the end of 2020 along with the new machine. Given Microsoft's dual focus now on both its console and PC businesses, it's likely that the new Hellblade release will come to Windows 10 at the same time.

Hellblade is perhaps the best example of mid-tier games development, with triple-A talent making something with limited resources. The title has sold over one million copies since its release at the end of 2017. This preceded developer Ninja Theory being snapped up by Microsoft in the summer of 2018.

This is the second game that the studio has announced since its purchase by the Xbox firm. At E3 this year, it revealed shooter Bleeding Edge.
