Greetings, readers! Dom, the Studio Head at Ninja Theory, here to give you an update on the highly anticipated Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. With just a few months left until its release on May 21, we are in the final stages of development, gearing up for a launch that will be available on XBOX Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S, Windows, and Steam.

In our recent Developer Direct, we had the pleasure of diving deeper into Senua’s next adventure, shedding light on our studio and the incredibly talented team behind it. It’s worth noting that since the release of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Ninja Theory has undergone some changes, transitioning from an independent team to becoming part of Xbox Game Studios. This transition has brought about new opportunities and support, allowing us to strive towards our ambitions while maintaining our unwavering passion and commitment to crafting art with technology.

Now, you might be wondering what we mean by “Independent AAA.” Well, it’s a space we created for ourselves during the development of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. We aimed to combine the creative freedom of independent development with the high production values typically associated with AAA games. Additionally, we took advantage of digital-only distribution to deliver a shorter yet impactful experience at a lower price point. This approach allowed us to focus on what truly matters – taking our fans on an unforgettable journey into Senua’s extraordinary world.

With Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, our approach remains the same. Despite no longer being an independent studio, joining Xbox Game Studios has actually emboldened our creative spirit. This new chapter in Senua’s life has provided us with the opportunity to push our production values even further than before.

So, for all you fans of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and those who appreciate narrative-driven experiences with cinematic immersion, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is being crafted specifically for you. It will offer a similar length to its predecessor, with a focused narrative, and will be available exclusively in digital format for $49.99 USD.

Once again, players can expect to delve into Senua’s world through perception puzzles influenced by her experiences of psychosis, engage in brutal and visceral combat, and navigate the stunning but unforgiving landscapes of 10th Century Iceland. These elements will come together to create a unique visual and audio experience that serves Senua’s captivating story.

Before I wrap this up, I want to express our gratitude to all our fans worldwide. Your unwavering support and well wishes are what drive us forward. With Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, we want to make it as accessible as possible for everyone to enjoy Senua’s journey. That’s why we have expanded our localization efforts to include 26 subtitled languages, including Arabic, Ukrainian, and, of course, Icelandic – the language of the land where Senua’s adventure unfolds!

Rest assured, here at Ninja Theory, we are working tirelessly alongside our partners and collaborators in music, mental health, art, and technology to deliver yet another extraordinary experience. We cannot wait for you to embark on Senua’s new journey on May 21. Stay tuned for more updates!
