Bleeding Edge’s Twitter announced the news while also reassuring its fans that even though the game won’t get any new content, it will continue to be playable on Xbox and PC.“With the studio now focusing on our new projects (Senua’s Saga, Project Mara & The Insight Project) we have decided that there will be no further content updates for Bleeding Edge,” Ninja Theory wrote. “The game is still playable on Xbox and PC. Thank you to the fans & keep teaming up & causing chaos!”
Bleeding Edge, a 4v4 third-person melee combat game, was announced at E3 2019 and was released on March 24, 2020.
In our Bleeding Edge review, we said “While tinkering with character builds and clashing swords amidst exciting team fights is fun, Bleeding Edge left me wanting more as the hours piled up. Matches frequently devolve into unbalanced, frustrating messes thanks to no role queue, and ranged combat is devoid of all the bits that make team fights enjoyable.”
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was also announced in 2019 and Microsoft revealed that it is being built on Unreal Engine 5 for Xbox Series X/S.
Project Mara is an experimental title that is allowing Ninja Thoery to explore new ways to tell stories. It was recently revealed that Project Mara will take place in a single, incredibly realistic apartment.
The Insight Project was also announced in 2019 and looks to be an “experimentally guided project that aims to deliver a mainstream solution to help treat mental suffering and encourage mental well being.”
