Ninja Theory, the developer behind PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword, has denied that they're working on a sequel or anything related to the IP.
Well that's a bummer, somewhat.
They wouldn't be the first developer to lie in order to shoot down a rumour. *cough* Jaffe *cough*
Hehehe. True story :).
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?
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.
Who said that they are the ones working on HS2? I think it was clear that some other dev was on it.
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
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
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.
I really enjoyed the first, i wouldn't have minded more but the story did tie up nicely.
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.
Who owns, Sony or NT? They might not be making it, doesn't mean it's not being made.
it was published by sony soooo maybe
Sony owned IP. Edit: lol disagree.
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.
sony owns the IP now
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
Best description of what sets it apart from any other game and why so many PS3 exclusives are totally different from most 3rd party games....thx ICYSUBZEEERO. Ninja Theory is class!
I love that game even though I haven't played it. I agree Ninja theory has major class They new exactly what they were doin with Heavenly Sword.
Instead they're destroying Devil May Cry at this very moment
why the disagree here , what he says is true
HHG fails again...
well,they are working with capcom,on dmc.
lol they are too busy killing the devil may cry series first ...
aww what a shame
Sony Santa Monica better be working on it.
Shame. The only way they could redeem from the upcoming DMC fiasco...
that just means that creators of god of war are making it IN THE END THERE WILL HEAVENLY SWORD 2 .
Ready At Dawn Studios or Sony Santa Monica should work on Heavenly Sword 2 in my opinion not NT
As long as HS is being developed im happy We dont need Ninja Theory whining this time around lol
Honestly I think Heavenly Sword 2 would be a complete waste of time for Sony, it's like trying to create another Lair or Haze, what's the point. The game just wasn't very good. There's so many franchises in need of a proper sequel or reboot. Syphon Filter, Jak and Daxter, just to name a few. It just doesn't make sense to me that they would waste resources on Heavenly Sword 2. Awaiting someone's hate filled statement ;)
cool, i dont care who makes it as long as they still get andy serkis to direct all the mocap
Bring back Nariko. Still remember the last boss fight in HS with all the bodies flying about and using them cannons to kill all those enemy soldiers. HS had some cool gameplay elements to it.
Of course not. Since they screwed and bad mouthed sony i don't think they will be able to make another heavenly sword. However Sony Santamonica could make it with the GOW engine which would be incredible. They deserved the poor sales of enslaved.
Nariko in Mortal Kombat 10? Seriously though, one of Sony's 20 devs needs to make a new HS. I'm guessing it won't be Santa Monica. Why would they work on that when they have GoW.
