NOW WHERE ARE THE WHINNING FANBOYS ?

HS IP IS OWNED BY SONY

OFCOURSE YOU WILL BE SEEING HS2 IN THE FUTURE .

NOW WHETHER THAT IS ON PS3/PS4--THAT IS A QUESTION?

“We (Ninja Theory) never started work on HS2 as we wanted to focus on new multiplatform IP. Sony owns the IP for HS and we have never been privy to what they would do with it"

So work hasn't been cancelled on heavenly sword, it was never started!

TANOD3746d ago

WORK WAS NEVER STARTED

I MEAN WHY WOULD THEY CAN HS2

HS SOLD OVER A MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE AT LAUNCH

HS2 WOULD SELL ATLEAST 2 M SINCE PS3 NOW HAS A MUCH BIGGER FANBASE

THEY CAN FURTHER POLISH HS2 IN THE FUTURE AND MAKE IT A TRUE AAA

too many capital letters!! ;)

Qbanboi3746d ago

I was going to ask the same. "When did they said the started doing the HS2"

juuken3746d ago

Count on kotaku to start a ridiculous rumor like that. -.-

TheHater3746d ago

it the only way the can get hits on their website.

Lifendz3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

and there is potential for that series. Just, as someone said before, focus on making a game and not a movie. Cut scenes are ancillary to the game itself imo. MGS4 is a prime example. The cutscenes compliment the gameplay. When the cutscenes are the star and the gameplay takes a backseat then something is wrong, i.e. Heavenly Sword.

I think this series is just ripe for an RPG like overhaul. In fact, I think the first one should have been an RPG. Would have probably done better as PS3 owners are RPG starved.

that means that we probably wont see another HS for a while....

More Kotaku anti Ps3 Propaganda. At least they quashed this rebellion before it got started.

Mr_Bun3746d ago

Way to go Kotaku...why do they hate on the PS3 so much?

Much like a 10 year old that has been denied an Oreo Cookie,they're still bitter about it.

Mr_Bun3746d ago

I had no idea...it makes sense now...bubbles 4 u!

heyheyhey3746d ago

cool

i hope Sony offloads the IP onto someone because HS was a good game

Wildarmsjecht3746d ago

I think they should give it to Ready at Dawn. They said they wanted to work on big platforms, and they've done an excellent job with Chains of Olympus. I think they might be a perfect fit for it.

heyheyhey3745d ago

yeah they actually seem like a perfect fit

As are 3 dozen programmer who used to work for Team Ninja. Sony should get them to make the next Heavenly Sword. They obviously know how to make that type of game. Just think about it. (Ninja Gaiden Sigma gameplay mechanics) + (Heavenly Sword Story) = (3 million sold and 9.5 on metacritic.)
