Ninja Theory's Next Game, Bleeding Edge, Hitting Technical Alpha Later This Month

Ninja Theory's Next Game, Bleeding Edge, Hitting Technical Alpha Later This Month

Bleeding Edge was officially revealed at the Xbox E3 press conference.

Today during Microsoft's big E3 2019 press conference, it revealed the first game from Ninja Theory since it acquired the studio last year. The action game focused studio is known for its work on DmC: Devil May Cry, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and more. Its new game is Bleeding Edge, a 4v4 melee focused multiplayer game.

Bleeding Edge has a more colorful art style than its most recent game, Hellblade, but it looks to be heading back to a playful tone. Bleeding Edge was leaked a couple days ago

Soon, you can try out Bleeding Edge for yourself when it hits technical alpha on June 27. When it officially launches too, it will be available on Xbox Game Pass.
