The studio that brought us DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory, made an announcement at Gamescom stating that they would be bringing a new game to the PlayStation 4 this year, but it seems like that was just the start for the game.
It turns out the game, Hellblade, will be coming to the PC and it will hopefully be "future-proof." The developers are looking to support 4K resolution and mods — as well as listen to the game community and implement suggestions and add ones.
PC Gamer made the official reveal during an interview with Ninja Theory's creative chief Tameem Antoniades:
“I think PC offers us a level of freedom that we haven’t had before…We’re looking at everything we do on this project and figuring out better ways of doing things compared to how the traditional AAA console model works. And consoles are following suit with PC, but I think they’re years behind what things like Steam are doing. If we want to do an open beta right now, it’s a little bit trickier to do that than on PC. Playtesting is a huge thing for us. Usability testing, getting people hands-on to try things out, get feedback, then roll that back in and improve the game… it’s always been essential for us to do that. Not every publisher has let us, because of the secrecy that goes into consoles and publisher-based businesses. As an independent we have the freedom to do that.”
The release date for Hellblade on the PC and PS4 has not been announced.
