However, that hasn’t deterred a number of fans from boldly claiming that the Xbox exclusive is already on its way to rival consoles. Several leakers and streamers have started making bold claims about streaming the game on their PlayStation consoles.

The Xbox exclusive, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, has no official news of being ported to other platforms. However, some streamers adamantly believe that the PS port of the game is already underway and will be released shortly after, if not with, the Xbox release.

This streamer makes two bold claims. Firstly, they promised to play the game on their PS5 Pro, even though a PS release for the game has not yet been announced. Secondly, they claim to do so at 60 fps, even after Ninja Theory decided to lock the game at 30 fps for a more cinematic experience.

I travel. I game. I write. In no strict order.
