Ninja Theory’s upcoming title, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, might turn into a franchise if it sells well and the developer chooses to do so.
Ninja Theory Co-Founder and Creative Director Tameem Antoniades was recently featured in an interview with WCCFTech, where he replied to a number of interesting questions. One of the questions was regarding the chances of seeing future entries and turning Hellblade into its own franchise. Luckily, Antoniades didn’t rule out the possibility and replied with “never say never.”
Although the Hellblade team is small, Ninja Theory is around 100 people and we are doing a mix of games including working with publishers. A healthy mix of established IP and new IP is where we want to be. Could Hellblade turn into a franchise? Never say never. I hope it’s a success so that we can at least have that choice to make.
A couple of months ago, the studio revealed the minimum PC requirements to run the title. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice releases on August 8 for PS4 and PC.
