While it’s not a specific release date, it does finally narrow in on some kind of release window for the title. The reason a release window is such a big step is because Hellblade has been in development since January of 2015, and in September of 2015, Ninja Theory sent out a confusing Tweet that led people to believe they were “starting over” with the title. According to DualShockers, it read,
A vertical slice is a testbed of ideas, not part of the final game. It has been retired and we have started#Hellblade production afresh.
Ninja Theory later deleted that Tweet and clarified.
@PS4Germany We are not starting the game development again. Production is a phase of dev that we are just moving into. Now we build the game— NinjaTheory (@NinjaTheory) September 10, 2015
Despite the messy, confusing Tweet, users still seemed to be excited about the announcement that they were moving forward.
@NinjaTheory you guy's are awesome, so looking forward to this game!!— Kyle Wilson (@theflashisboss) September 10, 2015
If the gameplay and story in Hellbound is anything like DmC: Devil May Cry, then it will be another favorite among fans. The combat system in DmC: Devil May Cry was a very simple process that included a lot of quick-time events and combo attacks and the story was something like you’d see in a comic book. Check out the most recent trailer below.
Hellblade follows the story of Celtic warrior, Senua, and her journey into a Hell of her own making due to mental illness. The title will be releasing onto PC and PS4 sometime this year.
