Ninja Theory explains why it joined Microsoft Studios

June 11, 2018 1 min read

Microsoft dropped a huge bombshell during its E3 conference yesterday. Not content to just sit around and let the Xbox One flounder, MS took initiative and bought a couple of notable game developers along with creating a brand new company. While a few of those devs were basically Microsoft companies (their past projects had only been on Xbox consoles), Ninja Theory's acquisition seemed completely out of left field.

Just last year, they released Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice in an effort to prove that big publishers weren't necessary for creating "AAA" games. How would signing up with Microsoft be different from Ninja Theory's past? In an effort to address fan concern, Ninja Theory has uploaded a short video explaining why they believe the decision was in the best interest for the company.
