Hellblade II: Senua’s Saga coming to Xbox Series X at launch.
Senua’s Saga is the sequel to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, an impressive AA effort from Ninja Theory, that was released to critical acclaim in 2017.
Last year, Microsoft acquired Ninja Theory. And, at E3 this year, the companies unveiled Bleeding Edge, a multiplayer-only action game. Nervous single-player fans can rest at ease: if the intense trailer for Hellblade II: Senua’s Saga is any indication, it looks like Ninja Theory is still going to keep making powerful single-player games.
Senua’s Sacrifice was already an impressive looking game, even with a modest budget and team size. With the increased resources that Microsoft can provide, Senua’s Saga may be a serious God of War-style exclusive for the next Xbox.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
