      That would have more impact on PS4, it’s probably a new IP

    • Cry_Zero

      that would be great

      I’m pretty sure they would need Sony to okay that. Since Sony owns the property. Which isn’t that big of a deal except it would likely have to still be exclusive to Sony hardware.

      Considering how many developers refuse to go exclusive these days, it’s kinda doubtful. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Heavenly Sword, and I was really sad with how things ended somewhat poorly between Sony and NT.

      I’d also really like to have that sequel, considering NT had started working on a sequel years ago, and how the first game ends. I also loved Kai, and she was rumored to play and even bigger role in the sequel.

      “On May 21, 2008, IT Manager “Peonic” announced that a follow-up to Heavenly Sword would be extremely unlikely due to Ninja Theory’s decision to pursue opportunities within multi-platform development:
      “We’re not abandoning HS just on a whim because we want to go off and do something different – there’s a great huge raft of reasons behind us taking the direction we are – and it’s also the nature of the business that I’m not allowed to share any of those reasons with you. As for the ‘you’re just not doing HS2 NOW’ comments – well one thing you learn in this industry is that you never say ‘Never’. So I’m not going to say we’ll “never” go back and make HS2 – but it’s something I personally see as extremely unlikely.”

        Man that’s unfortunate. I really thought they would do a sequel for PS4. Oh well I guess it’s just business.

          Let’s try to be positive. Perhaps it will happen. =)

        I think Ninja Theory got what they deserved out of the Heavely Sword ordeal. They trashed exclusives after it and acted like selling over a million is terrible for a new IP… one which was expensive to make because of how they made it.

        Then they make a multiplatform game that tanks hard. It’s a half shame too, Enslaved was a wonderful game in my opinion. But, it’s karma and REALITY slapping them in the face. More platforms =/= more sales.

  • adhesive

    Can’t wait for their next promising but sadly underwhelming game.

  • Fango

    rumors on jp sites is that capcom is giving them development of a MH game on psvita and ps4

    • Prodigy-X

      Where did you see that?

    • LynxAmali

      DON’T.

      THAT’S BAAAAAAAAAAAAAD.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I hope they get Alex Garland back for whatever it is. NT’s own writers are… bad.

  • GODDUKEMONEXA

    DANTE RETURNS: DmC

    • https://www.facebook.com/miyabigaming 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

      Lol wouldn’t be surprised

    • PrinceHeir

      lol that would be funny XD

    • MosquitoLemon

      LOL! I’d probably get it like a sucker

  • Ritsujun

    Capcom never learnt their lessons, so it could be DmC2.

  • Bloodios

    DmC for Wii U…

  • http://xcite79.1up.com Keegs79

    They proven themselves with DMC. I would like to see them resurrect Dino Crisis or Onimusha Warlords.

    • Solomon_Kano

      HELL NO to Onimusha. No, no, no, no, no.

    • Ni

      Dino Crisis and Onimusha rebooted by NT? Don’t even joke.

  • http://twitter.com/Krldraav Krldraav

    A Megaman reboot

    • Raiyu

      don’t toy with me

    • Bloodios

      *LOL* I can imagine Megaman dropping an F-bomb every five seconds.

    DMC DLC

  • PrinceHeir

    lol DmC 2.

    capcom will never learn :P

  • gamelayer

    Hopefully it’s a bankruptcy statement.
    I hate what these clowns did with DMC.

  • Kurisu Makise

    Heavenly Sword 2 for PS4 =(

  • gamelayer

    Capcom and Konami need to stop pimping their licenses out to
    Western devs!

    • MosquitoLemon

      But this is a new IP….?

    • Len

      Bionic Commando Rearmed and Dead Rising 2.5: Frank West Edition were made by western devs, they just need to not hire shitty ones like Ninja Theory

  • Zuhri69

    Regardless of what people think about DmC, I have strong faith that whatever new projects they come up with will be amazing. Shame about the whole DmC scene, this company really has a good vision.

  • AHox

    Enslaved 2 Please!

  • Karl Josef

    DMC for psv?

  • Jared Carter

    Heavenly Sword was good. Enslaved was great. DmC was awesome. I loved each game they’ve made. They can do no wrong. Looking forward to what they’re working on.

  • Kanok Timkhlai

    it’s possible is Strider Hiryu.

  • Derpazu

    Would be hilarious if it’s DmC 2. That would confirm that Capcom hates money after all.

  • Oat_Of_Matador_Quatro

    We’ll probably have another reboot in which Dante chooses to become a chef and opposes the capitalism by Gordon Ramsay.
