As revealed on its Twitter page, Ninja Theory is hiring for an unannounced game.
Interersting... Maybe I should hit them up for a job?
Devil May Cry reboot.
Heavenly Sword 2!
Nah, Sony owns the rights to that one and NT is not making exclusives any more.
Well after these initial Enslaved sales and the DMC remake outcry, I wonder if they won't change their tune to prevent from closing down shop.
I don't think they will, they've moved on from Heavenly Sword. I'd actually be interested in seeing Heavenly Sword 2 developed by Sony Santa Monica. Could turn out quite good.
How about they finish ruining DMC before they ruin something non-existant.
well.. 80.000 copies sold in the first month... thats not much for enslaved.
At least they can't blame PS3 for this one and just their lack of talent.
It's even worse because it's on two consoles and underperformed to it's exclusive counterpart.
but but it sells more if it multiplatform
next up NT will be crying about enslaved this is worse than HS at least HS was exclusive with a smaller user base Enslaved is multiplatform where both consoles doubled their previous user base
So of the 80K, which console did it sell more for? The PS3 or 360, cause by how NT shat on Sony and blamed them for HS only selling 1.7 million, plus all the 360 ass kissing, I figured it would be a 500K Day one on 360 alone.
It's a sad period for Ninja Theory. They just suck(I don't mean hard working people there but a-holes who did this negative publicity about HS sales, criticizing Uncharted 2 development methods etc)...
I swear if Enslaved was exclusive to PS3 it could have performed better.
not really the concept of enslaved isnt one that alot of people are interested in
poor ninja theory it seems all their games sell low to bad heavenly sword was fucking awesome
What is the excuse now that people seen a three year old game that was better than it's newer counterpart?
They should think about making their announced games run at 60fps (at least DMC) before even thinking about new ones.
Early success of enslaved? Game flopped sales wise, I doubt that sequel would be a wise and profitable idea. IMO, the game itself sucked. Was planning to buy it until I tried the demo.
exclusives = poor sales T_T multiplatform = ??? o.O
Some of you guys are fucked in the head. How does NT have no talent? Because last I checked both Heavenly Sword and Enslaved were excellent titles. How are they ruining DmC? Because they changed the look of your boyfriend Dante? Boohoo. Grow up.
LMFAO, the amount of hypocrites on N4G. You people are saying Enslaved failed because only 80,000 copies were sold, yet I'm sure you have constantly argued how sales =/= quality many times before... Ive said it before, and Ill say it again; regardless of sales, Enslaved is a better game than 80% of the trash that is being sold in stores.
Didn't play Enslaved but Heavenly Sword was great. The graphics, animations, story, game play, replay value, voice acting...I mean damn the list went on. That was the first PS3 game that showcased its power. Why Ninja Theory abandoned it to make Enslaved I don't understand.
Ninja Theory will conduct themselves better in the PR department instead of alienating the majority of their fanbase by passing the blame onto their previous game, and the hardware it was released on. it's funny, Heavenly Sword sold 1 million units on the PS3. that's 1 million fans that were eager to play Ninja Theory's next game, regardless of the platform it was released on (although they were certainly hoping for another PS3 exclusive). so what does Ninja Theory do? shit all over Heavenly Sword and the PS3 in order to appease their POTENTIAL fanbase of Xbox Fanboys (i stress fanboys, not fans), who, if i recall, claimed that Heavenly Sword was "crap," and Ninja Theory "sucked." yeah, good job, Ninja Theory. the Xbox fanboys didn't support your new game because they were still claiming that HS was crap, and you suck as developers. the PS3 fanboys didn't support your game because, as faithful Heavenly Sword fans, they were disappointed that you not only dropped the series, but TRASHED it every chance you got, as well as blame the PS3 for what you consider to be poor sales for Heavenly Sword. for the record, 1 million units sold at $60 is $60 million. most games barring uber exclusives like Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 go over $40 million in budget. so, WHAT, exactly, were you spending your money on? Andy Serkis? i doubt that, as talented of a guy as he is. the tech behind Heavenly Sword? that could be leveraged across other PS3 titles, as the motion capture and facial capture in Heavenly Sword is STILL the best in the industry, and it's a 3 year old game. i hope Ninja Theory learned a valuable lesson with Enslaved: don't piss off the fanbase that fervently supported your first next gen effort, and don't release your next title the same day as a legacy franchise like Castlevania. and no, i didn't buy Enslaved. not because i thought it was crap (i rather enjoyed the demo; the story and setting is really intriguing), but because my budget is limited, and as a diehard Heavenly Sword fan, i felt slighted and insulted for rallying behind Heavenly Sword, a fantastic year one PS3 title that really showed off the potential of the PS3 on a technical level.
