Ninja Theory to 'reveal new IP soon'

Studio expected to show off its latest project by mid-August

Ninja Theory has confirmed plans to reveal a new game "soon".

The Cambridge-based UK studio said this week. "Cannot wait to show off some new Ninja work. It's been too long." It later added: "We'll be announcing a new project soon, which is a new IP."


Studio co-founder Tameem Antoniades is expected to reveal a new-gen title during a presentation at Game Developers Conference Europe, an industry-only event that runs in conjunction with Gamescom in mid-August.

He will give a talk titled 'The AAA Design Postmortem', in which he will discuss some of the company's failed projects alongside upcoming ones.

According GDC Europe event organiser UBM Tech Game Network, the session will cover "the unrealised sequel to Kung Fu Chaos, footage of an as-yet-undisclosed next generation game, and various other pitches that we had to put on ice or walk away from".

The session description adds: "With the next generation consoles arriving at the top end, just as mobile and indie games have taken hold at the bottom, perhaps there is room for a third way, to turn the 'squeezed middle,' where many a good studio has disappeared, into an opportunity to redefine gaming: the AAA indie game."

Ninja Theory released its first iOS title, action game Fightback, in July 2013. Its last console game, DmC Devil May Cry for publisher Capcom, launched in January 2013 to widespread critical acclaim.

During the last console generation, Ninja Theory also developed Heavenly Sword for PS3, and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

In November 2013, Ninja Theory denied a report which claimed the studio was set to quit making console games.
