Ninja Theory May Be Targeting Next-Gen Consoles With Next Game

Ninja Theory

Ninja Theory, the Cambridge-based game designers best known for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and DmC: Devil May Cry, has several new job listings on its website.

Positions include Senior Combat Designer, Mid/Senior Sound Designer, and Senior Engine Programmer (C++), which all imply the company has a new project in the pipeline, and is possibly aiming to release it on next-generation consoles. Ninja Theory recently confirmed that a Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Xbox One port, complete with Xbox One X enhancements, is in the works, but these job listings are for candidates with expertise beyond porting.

The Combat Designer posting, in particular, is revelatory for what Ninja Theory is working on.  The advertisement reads that “[Ninja Theory] are aiming to set the bar for next-generation melee action,” requesting that the potential candidate should “demonstrable talent for creating intricate game mechanics.”

Overall, all the postings imply heavily that the developer’s next game will be melee-heavy and attempt to push the bar mechanics-wise. Each posting also emphasises the need for creativity, so the genre-bending style of Hellblade will likely be continued in the company’s future IPs.

Hellblade‘s Xbox One release is due on April 11. Hellblade impressed OnlySP’s Adam Speight when it released on PC and PlayStation 4 in 2017.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
