Everything We Know About Hellblade 2

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was an out of nowhere home-run. The game received mediocre coverage throughout development, but nobody truly knew what to expect.

With it's success in the rear view mirror, developers Ninja Theory, fresh off their acquisition by Microsoft, turn their attention to the sequel, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2.

Hellblade 2 Release Date

The Hellblade 2 release date is currently unknown. At best it's believed it is set for release in 2023 along side some of the other first part titles due such as Perfect Dark, Elder Scrolls 6 and Fable.

Hellblade 2 did not show up at E3 2021, but is instead planned for a showing of sorts at the Xbox Games Showcase: Extended.

Is Hellblade 2 Exclusive To Xbox?

Yes, as part of Ninja Theory's transition to a first-party Xbox studio, their titles will be Xbox exclusives. There is some irony to this as the first title was a timed exclusive for the PS4 and PC.

If there is one thing we learned from E3 2021, it's that Xbox will utilise their first-party portfolio exactly how they should. All titles from these studios, going forward, will be at the very least timed exclusives if not completely exclusive to the Xbox Series X and S while also releasing on PC.

Is Hellblade 2 Coming To Xbox Game Pass?

Yes, Hellblade 2 will launch Day One on Xbox Game Pass. This is part of the overall initiative to ensure all first-party games are launching on Game Pass for subscribers.

The knowledge that you will never have to pay for a first-party title if you are a Game Pass user has been one of its biggest selling points since it launched.

Who Plays Senua In Hellblade

Senua is played by Melina Juergens. She was, and still is, a video editor at Ninja Theory before stepping in to help out with some motion capture. During this, she became a perfect fit for the character and has portrayed her ever since, winning a BAFTA and Game Award for doing so.
