Xbox Game Marketing Rep Aaron Greenberg took to Twitter to confirm that the Hellblade’s sequel will be exclusive to Xbox and PC.
The reveal trailer for the sequel of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice generated a lot of excitement among fans, and for good reason. The first game was outstanding in every aspect, and no doubt the sequel will deliver on that same quality. Senua’s Sacrifice never shied away from touching on strong themes, especially that of mental illness, but always did so with care.
However, Ninja Theory’s announcement of Hellblade II had many fans confused as to whether or not the sequel will see a release onto the PS5. Unfortunately, for those who plan on getting the PlayStation 5, you won’t be able to continue the journey with Senua.
There’s a sense of irony in the fact that Hellblade II won’t be releasing on PS5. After all, the original game first came to PS4 in 2017, and due to its popularity, it was ported over to Xbox in 2018 and onto the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Being that it’s an exclusive now, it’s more than likely that a port over to the Nintendo Switch will not be happening.
Hellblade II was announced during the Game Awards 2019 and fans were given a short cinematic teaser. For now, all we know is it’s coming to Xbox Series X, and that it takes place after the events of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
