Ninja Theory took to twitter today to celebrate a huge milestone for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, with their indie AAA title selling a million copies.
Hellblade has won numerous awards and acclaim, as a game for change and for its mature depiction of mental illness, something rarely seen in the industry. Ninja Theory made Hellblade as a budget game with AAA production and set the title at a lower price point, hoping to show that there was space for a different tier of games. The bet definitely paid off for the team and they have even recently been picked up by Microsoft to become an exclusive studio.
Hopefully they will continue to make forward thinking and creative games while under the Xbox banner, while also not having to worry about funding and budgetary issues. The game is available for 40% off as part of the Steam Summer Sale and you can also purchase it on PS4 and Xbox One.
