British developer Ninja Theory may be unveiling their next project to the public as early as next year, according to Xbox's Phil Spencer.
Excited by this
Super excited as well, love this dev.
Oh yes! Can't wait wait!
Makes sense they would already have something in the works since the Sacrifice game. Interested to see what they have in store. Will probably be saved for the next E3.
Mat Booty said a lot of the new studios were already working on new games when they got acquired by Microsoft.
But will the games be good that's the biggest question 🤔 the only one I see that has potential is Ninja Theory new IP
How is that when we have not seen what the studios are working on including Ninja Theorys new project? /SMH
I'm going by NT reputation and past games. Can't say the same for the other developers.
Whats the NT reputation and past games?
So playground games isn’t very good? A brand new studio with devs from Sony Santa monica (a producer on the most recent god of war) a lead writer from RDR, director of Rise of the tomb raider amongst many other industry vets has no potential? https://www.kitguru.net/gam... And then there is obsidian. Makers of one of the best Fallout games ever, as well as south park stick of truth, But there’s no potential there either....... coming from a MS hater this is very typical
Will the games be good? I've read that each new studio MS aquired is making new games with the intention of purposely making them as bad as humanly possible. It's just a rumor though so take that with a grain of salt.
@Clark88 So you're saying if a new studio started today, they would have no potential?.
Playground Games and Obsidian (and to a lesser extent, IneXile) are also great devs you know.
So is good determined by your own opinion or metacritic, because I would say Quantem Break was good but most won't agree. I can't tell whether it's geniune or because it's MS.
This comment thread reminds of a - insert any zombie flick scene- were a character finds themselves into a room/area surrounded by 1000 blind zombies and they know that if they made the slightest sound they would get torn apart in that instant. Clark, dude, that was loud.
Can't wait to see what they have come up with!
I just hope its for Xbox One and not for next gen xbox.
Probably next gen. They’re most likely working up to the announcement of the next xbox when they will reveal what their new studios are working on.
Well didn't Phil say they aren't doing traditional gens anymore? I'd expect that at least the One X will be supported as well.
I think they will be for this gen. Phil has said that he wants Microsoft to look at bringing games out all year round and its kind of started now with SoT coming out earlier in year and we now know CD3 will also be earlier to. I see microsoft starting a cycle next year where each quarter has a new game not just in the last few months of the year as both Nintendo and Sony have shown games sell well all year round plus the big names like fifa cod AC always come out last few months of the year. I also don't see a new xbox coming until 2020 if microsoft are to be taken on there word of upgrades ther than a new gen then next xbox would be 3 years after the x like the x was after the Xbox. I also don't see them making a smaller version of the consoles any more to I think the s will be the last of that for Microsoft. I could be way off though and microsoft do something different.
Hopefully cross-gen games.
Microsoft is not know for showing games for next gen, and since they already have Gears 5 next year, confirmed, others will follow.
It's a shame. I bought Hellblade on my PS4 and got the platinum for it. , and I probably won't be buying an Xbox for the next Ninja Theory game.
Time will tell if Microsoft lives up to what they said and let them have freedom. I bought an xbox only for scalebound being a platinum games fan but that didn't end well. Since they got more studios now, possible chance you might like something from their new studios
I guess you are right. However, with my current backlog of games, and games that I will be playing in the future, it’s not conducive for me to be investing in another system. I do wish the studio luck on their journey with Xbox, but I won’t be there to play their games. It’s a shame because I did like Hellblade.
You bought an Xbox One for a Game that was releasing also on PC, hahahahaha, the shit people come up with.
My sentiments as well. This is the down side to studio acquisition. But if they create something undeniably amazing, I may consider it.
Well if they start building a decent library with all these new acquisitions, I'm sure you'll be able to pick up a cheap Xbox in a couple years. Phil did say that they're done with traditional console cycles so I'd assume NT's next game will still support the X as well as the NextBox
You don’t have to be loyal to just one console and limiting yourself to just one console you know. The world is big out there, you should expand your horizon.
Not if that console for the past 5 years hasn't landed any original compelling interesting exclusives,buying a console just to collect dust is a waste of money.
I know most you guys on N4G are all about the metacritic and other people's opinions for you to enjoy a game. MS has been releasing games this year they released just as many platform exclusives as Sony, but of course nobody likes MP or GAAS. You can shit on SOD and SOT all day but these games are still being updated through 2019 and beyond no need to mention Forza because that's the definitive racing game of this gen.
Good for them, MS desperately really needs help regarding games.
That is why they are acquiring 7 more studios to do just that.
i hope it's not a game like hellblade, that was a snorefest. but if they do a game like enslaved o DmC, well, kudos to microsoft
Agree, Hellblade just didn't connect with me despite some nice graphics, Enslaved and DMC were both solid games though especially Enslaved and would love to see something else from that universe.
Xbox should have teased the Ninja Theory Project and shown some Gears 5, Gears Tactics and Battletoads content yesterday. XO18, like the other Inside Xbox Episodes came of as a giant ad for GamePass.
I'm excited for this one! Xbox making a strong comeback
Good luck to Ninja Theory. Releasing on the smallest user base is not gonna help launch their game to the masses. Hope the Xbox community really support their game.
didn’t know the Windows PC as well as xbox would be considered the smallest user base.
Yeah its not like PC gamers have an abundance of triple AAA. This is not a sarcastic reply.
Switch overtook Xbox One already? Wow I must have missed that. Also I thought everybody here owned a super capable PC on which to play Xbox One exclusives anyway so they should be fine right?
Smallest user base? The switch is still down 19 million form Xbox One's numbers. And if we are going to be fair the Switch is a gen 9 not a gen 8 for Nintendo. Nintendos' gen 8 was the WiiU. Sorry, no do-overs if your gen 8 sucks as bad as WiiU did. But I guess that makes Switch the current winner, with no one else playing yet, in gen 9. So, Nintendo has that going for it. Wait... what is that I hear... Oh yes, it is the another Mario game coming... What is that 8 Mario related games so far? Oh, exciting times... "Mario and his super-duper bicycle adventure and shuffle board simulator"
I imagine its hellblade 2
Their games suck. I want too see whether they come up with a character uglier than Senua or not.
Lmao good luck going up against Horizon 2, Gow 2, Spiderman 2, Persona 6 & more next gen.
Don't worry. They will be fine, kid.
Im looking forward to new tactics of exploitation from Microsoft. I respect them for that.
Horizon, Spiderman, and GoW I’ll give you that. But we are not even sure if the next Persona game will be exclusive. Plus, with games from devs like Ninja Theory, Obsidian, Playground Games, The Coalitions (and a dark horse in The Initiatives), I’m sure they will do just fine.
While I would love the next Persona game to come to Xbox, I can't see it happening to be honest, maybe PC.
I'm curious to see what NT will be bringing to the MS console but it won't be enough for me to adopt an XBO console.
Don't worry it's not on XB1 but it's going to Next XB.
A sequel to Kung Fu Chaos perhaps Most likely not but it'd be a pleasant surprise
