Well that's a bummer, somewhat.

mephman3026d ago

They wouldn't be the first developer to lie in order to shoot down a rumour. *cough* Jaffe *cough*

tweex3026d ago

Hehehe. True story :).

trainsinrdr3026d ago

yh and also the makers of uncharted says they were working on single player dlc when they were just covering up the rumour of uncharted 3 being in development because the girl that voices elena says shes been called back by naughty dog to voice elena again.

Wouldn't Santa Monica have taken it on?

NukaCola3026d ago

After Ninja Theory hated on PS3 and Sony about HS, and then totally turned on the fans over the Enslaved games, calling it better than Uncharted, etc etc...I hightly see Sony letting NT back into the family. Let Santa Monica or someone who isn't a team of crying douches handle the next game.

Iamback3026d ago

Who said that they are the ones working on HS2? I think it was clear that some other dev was on it.

limewax3026d ago

NT dont even have the rights to this game anymore so of course they wont be working on it, After the fiasco of the first one I think they would really have to suck up to Sony to even get a chance at working on the sequel

no this was exspected since sony owns the IP and NT better be balls in deep working on DmC

sinncross3026d ago

I highly doubt NT are working on Heavenly Sword 2. When did their studio become big enough to handle two high profile games simultaneously, DMC and HS2?

Sales were not impressive on HS... they are even worse on Enslaved (with 2 platforms to boot): NT are the last developers right now if HS2 is really in development.

It is either Santa Monica or Ready at Dawn imho

Quagmire3026d ago

Considering Santa Monica hasnt officially announced anything as of yet, I'm guessing Sony wouldve asked them to take on HS2 after their work was for GOW3 was completed.

Selyah3026d ago

I really enjoyed the first, i wouldn't have minded more but the story did tie up nicely.

theunleashed643026d ago (Edited 3026d ago )

the source from the rumor stated that ninja theory won't be working on it.

edit: i'm not lying the source claimed that ninja theory wasn't working on it. i'm not saying i believe the rumor but that's what they said.

Emilio_Estevez3026d ago

Who owns, Sony or NT? They might not be making it, doesn't mean it's not being made.

interrergator3026d ago

it was published by sony soooo maybe

Fishy Fingers3026d ago (Edited 3026d ago )

Sony owned IP.

Edit: lol disagree.

oldjadedgamer3026d ago

Sony owns the IP. There was a rumor that Santa Monica were the ones working on it. But with GoW4 likely coming out in 2012, I dont know who would be working on it.

AngelicIceDiamond3026d ago

Though I never I played it personally(cuzz only own a Xbox) the sheer beauty and gruesome but yet elegent flow of gameplay was absolutely Inspiring in everyway possible PlayStation Fans are Lucky.....very lucky

Tyre3026d ago
