Recently, Microsoft set up new studios and acquired a lot of teams like Playground Games, Obsidian Entertainment, and Ninja Theory. The Initiative is Microsoft’s new studio based in Santa Monica, California. The team is tasked with creating “AAAA” games that represent the highest quality. The Initiative has been hiring a lot of incredible developers from Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica, but it looks like Ninja Theory also managed to attract incredible talent.
It’s great to see that Ninja Theory is attracting high-quality talent after joining Xbox Game Studios. The Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II reveal blew everyone away at The Game Awards 2019, and we can’t wait to see what Watkins does at the studio. Hopefully, the game will be a larger adventure this time around. We’re hoping for a semi-open-world stucture because linear games aren’t really that popular nowadays in my opinion.
What do you hope to see in Hellblade II? Let us know. The in-engine trailer was quite spectacular and, hopefully, the gameplay will be of similar visual quality. As always, the title will be part of Xbox Game Pass so you can access it as part of your subscription.
