Ninja Theory, the studio behind Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has been acquired by the tech giant Microsoft. This literally means for story-oriented games for Xbox.

Along with the acquisition of Ninja Theory, they announced the acquisition of four other studios as well that includes Compulsion Games.

Ninja Theory which was formed in March 2000 is the company behind games like DmC, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and Enslaved: Odyssey to The West has undoubtedly made quite a name for for itself over the recent years. No wonder, Microsoft spared no effort to acquire the best of the best in the market.

  1. Brainless Microsoft executives have bought out the makers of games not deserving of a second playthrough. Good move. You’ll kill each other off, thankfully.

  2. This was the ONE AND ONLY BIG announcement from that conference… I genuinely gasped… the rest of the conference was just ‘Good’, it wasn’t very good – excellent – great or amazing.. it was JUST good…. but honestly it just shows that the Xbox really is just the multiplat box tbh…

  3. lol Owners of Ninja Theory are either really stupid or just wanted a quick buyout. Nothing good will come out of this. If you looked at the history of studios acquired by Microsoft most have either been closed or had their projects cancelled because the suits didn’t think their game would be a system seller. The ones that are remaining are now pumping out mindless sequel after sequel.

    Only game developers who are dead inside work for a Microsoft owned studio. The smart ones like Bungie get the hell out while they still can.
