Ninja Theory responds to Heavenly Sword 2 rumour

Posting over at NeoGaf, a Ninja Theory staffer has responded to the earlier Kotaku rumour concerning the canning of Heavenly Sword 2.

“We (Ninja Theory) never started work on HS2 as we wanted to focus on new multiplatform IP. Sony owns the IP for HS and we have never been privy to what they would do with it,

As for moving, we have been planning to move to larger premises for future expansion for the best part of a year. There is nothing bitter about the move.

And the rumour that the team has been disbanded is ridiculous. We have had an unbelievably loyal team especially as we went through some difficult times securing a new publishing deal. We have a new publisher and are busy on our new project which is going very well so far.

HS is far from our thoughts at the moment.


So that’s that.

Thanks, Psychotext.
