Ninja Theory: No, Hellblade Development Isn't Starting Over

No, it doesn't mean they're starting over from scratch.

Gamers everywhere were concerned when developer Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West) talked about "starting Hellblade production afresh." If you haven't been following along, Hellblade is the team's promising new project.

You can see the now-deleted post at NeoGAF, where Ninja Theory says they've "retired" a vertical slice of the game that was recently shown off to the media. Then, after talking about starting "afresh," everyone had questions. But thankfully, Ninja Theory clarified - first to GameSpot and then on Twitter - that the game is still on track.

They "absolutely" plan to finish the current build before 2017 and added:

"Retiring our vertical slice and moving on into production is good news. [Development] is not starting again, it is moving forward as expected."

Hellblade will now push through full production, followed up by a polishing and balancing phase. And yes, the promising PlayStation 4 title is still on track for a 2016 launch. If you missed it, check out the extended gameplay cut that raised plenty of eyebrows.

While gamers wait they can sharpen up their combat skills playing an Infinity Blade game on iOS.
