A Ninja Theory staffer has responded to the earlier Kotaku rumour concerning the canning of Heavenly Sword 2.
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?
stop writing in caps
“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!
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!! ;)
I was going to ask the same. "When did they said the started doing the HS2"
Count on kotaku to start a ridiculous rumor like that. -.-
it the only way the can get hits on their website.
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.
Way to go Kotaku...why do they hate on the PS3 so much?
http://www.joystiq.com/2007... Much like a 10 year old that has been denied an Oreo Cookie,they're still bitter about it.
I had no idea...it makes sense now...bubbles 4 u!
cool i hope Sony offloads the IP onto someone because HS was a good game
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.
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.)
Heavenly Sword ended and that is that. If they never make another one then I am fine with that. What would they do? A prequel? A sequel?
Talk was of a prequel. I liked the game and wished it would of been longer, but i dont know if I would play 2 unless it had the same cinematic feeling.
Doesn't the sword still exists? So they can make a sequel that revolves around the one who or might inherit the Heavenly sword. Actually then can make dozens of HS games with that concept.
who cares? NEXT!
etownone - 0 minutes ago PM Track Ignore2 - who cares? NEXT! Enough for you to post apparently. Isn't life swell?
Obviously you cared because you *gasp* commented! Jackass.
He's a bot. They're not smart.
Kotaku hates PS3 is like saying SDF likes the Xbox.
It would be easy to make several other HS titles. It's a game about a sword, just tweak the gameplay a bit and change to another hot girl in a different period in time and there you have it. Easy. There are a lot of things they could do to improve on the first one, although I like the first one.
In the rumor they do say that the Sony Cambridge team was working on the sequal and not Ninja Theory so there may have been some truth to this rumor.
Since when did people begin thinking work had started on HS2? Sony, nor NT ever said anything of the sort. It was idiots who started speculating. IMO, Heavenly Sword is best left where it ended. Great game for those who were privileged enough to experience it, but a sequel....well, I don't think I would enjoy it as much knowing how the story of Nuriko ends.
Personally i think sony is investing more money into games with online ability. Lets be truthful, most of you wouldn't buy a game with no online mode. It would have to be a game like bioshock to ever get me to consider a purchase.
Even kotaku themselves say in the rumor, that NT is not working on HS2. The rumor is about Hs2 and Sony cambridge not NT. Also NT said on GAF that they indeed have left the building -> that was part of the Kotaku rumor. Go figure.
Well, the game had a definite ending that wasn't a cliffhanger, so there's no rush for a sequel
i loved HS. I thought it was really fun and beautifull. well we will never know what the future brings until it is arrives.
