Ninja Theory Working On Xbox 360

Speaking to this afternoon, Ninja Theory, the devs behind PS3 classic Heavenly Sword, have confirmed that they’re working on a brand new multiformat title that will hit both the PS3 and the 360, and are already signed to a publisher. If there is going to be a Heavenly Sword 2 (the IP for which is owned by Sony, not Ninja Theory) it will likely come from a different developer.

According to GI, Nina Kristensen, co-founder and chief developer at Ninja Theory has even revealed that the team is seriously considering working on a CGI movie to accompany the new game. “We’re certainly targeting a triple-A blockbuster, with two and a half years in production – a big game that builds on our core strengths of story-telling, cinematics and combat. But we’re actually looking at something in addition to that – we’re considering opportunities in creating a CGI movie using the game engine alongside the game itself,” she offered.

“The game’s certainly the most important thing, and we haven’t decided for sure to do this, but it’s something we’re looking at. It’s an interesting idea,” she added.
