Rumor Water: Heavenly Sword 2 Under Development, More Details At E3

by Ernice Gilbert on May 7th, 2011, under E3 2011, Hot, Rumor, Sony

Heavenly Sword is one of those games that came out in the early days of PS3, and managed to display the console’s magnificent power. It also sold a decent amount of copies in its time, and has garnered a faithful fanbase. Ninja Theory developed the first game, but ever since the studio parted ways with Sony, a sequel of the hack-n-slash title has been in doubt.

Not no longer, apparently, as PlayGamer magazine has teased that a sequel will be present at E3.

According to the mag, the game will be set 10 years after the first, and will be an open-world sandbox title.

PlayGamer went on to say that in Heavenly Sword 2, players will start out with basic abilities like hand combat, moving to more physical battles as the game proceeds, and then when deemed worthy, the Heavenly Sword will be unleashed.

Sounds rather hot. E3 it is, then.

Thanks, Silent Chief.

    crytek are hard at work on project kingdoms which will be fully unveiled at E3 and will have kinect support.
    crytek UK will hopefully go back to the timesplitter series, i remember a few weeks before release cervat was asked if he would let the UK team work on that and he said wed love to work on a new timesplitters game.
