Ninja Theory: We’ve Been Lucky That We’ve Been Able to Survive

UK-based independent video game developer, Ninja Theory, considers itself lucky enough to have survived in the industry following some commercial failures. Despite a decent reception, neither Heavenly Sword nor Enslaved: Odyssey to the West sold as well as the developer would have liked. Despite this, it secured a deal to develop DmC: Devil May Cry for Capcom, which may just have come at the right time for the studio

These guys are cool devs. Too bad their games get obscure by other games, and the DMC controversy didn't help either. Here's hoping their next vames succeeds and someday they make Heavenly Sword 2

Yeah so cool to insult gamers and other devs just because they point out a bug or make a better game then them....

They're right, they are very lucky they have survived with their unprofessional attitude. I still refuse to support them long before DmC happened but that certainly cemented it.

I would love HS2. Enslaved was better than I thought too. They are pretty good.

Heavenly Sword is way underrated. Definitely a fun game. The DmC controversy didn't help even though it was a solid game if you're not being a fanboy.

I can't talk about DmC since I haven't played it, but I loved Heavenly sword. Gameplay was solid (though slightly floaty at times), the story was interesting, and characters wer freakin brilliant imo.

I'm excited and want to see more of Hell Blade.

MS or Sony should snap these guys up if they are at risk of closing. They are AAA devs and could churn out some great exclusives.

They are not bad devs, but their games are sorta a hit or miss. DmC didn't really help with that and neither did Enslaved. Hellblade looks amazing, but I question if it might suffer from some of the same issues their previous titles have had.

I can't really had the AAA title to them, they are like AA and a half or something lol. Production is always great with them, the quality of game play is always something up to question.

It would really be a good deal for the company that acquires them.
I hope these guys end up doing games for a long time.

Enslaved was one of my favorite games last generation.
