Ninja Theory has confirmed that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will be released next year.
A general 2024 release window was announced on Sunday during the Xbox Games Showcase.
New footage of the game running on Xbox Series X, which showed Senua exploring a cave and is viewable below, also premiered during the presentation.
“Hellblade was very special for us and we didn’t want to do a straight sequel, we wanted to do something extra special, and so we’re making our lives as difficult as possible in that pursuit,” Ninja Theory co-founder Tameem Antoniades said in a behind the scenes video released in June 2021.
“The game is set in ninth century Iceland, so we’ve been sending our art and audio teams out there doing photography, photogrammetry and combining it with satellite data to recreate large swathes of the landscape.
“On the character front, we’re building real costumes, scanning them in. We’re collaborating with Epic Games to bring you next generation digital characters.
“On the combat front, we wanted to be extra real and brutal and so Melina, our main actress, has been training for two years, and all of our animators have undergone combat training.”
