Ninja Theory’s upcoming Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 will could be shown at The Game Awards this year, according to credible industry insider Jeff Grubb. Grubb revealed this information in the latest episode of the DefiningDuke podcast, and has provided concrete reasoning for his beliefs.
Grubb says that Xbox might already be ready to show Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 in all of its Unreal Engine 5 glory. However, given the density of announcements by the company at gaming events this year, Grubb believes that Microsoft will instead reveal the game at this year’s TGA, airing on December 9.
“I think Hellblade 2 was kind of the plan as well, but we’ll see if that actually happens. They were thinking about doing the thing that they had after E3 with Parris. They were thinking about putting that in the show but were like ‘no, that’s too much for you stuff so we’ll just save that and then we’ll do something later in the year’, probably The Game Awards, that’s going to be the plan. We’ll see, those plans could change,” Grubb said (as transcribed by Pure Xbox)
Grubb also mentioned that Obsidian Entertainment’s Avowed could grace the stage as well, although it’s best to take the story with a grain of salt. However, given the fact that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was originally revealed at The Game Awards, it isn’t too far-fetched to imagine the game re-appearing on the same stage.
