Ninja Theory: 'We would've done Heavenly Sword 2'

I remember Heavenly Sword being one of the better responses to the question 'Why did you spend $600 on a PS3?' back in the day. It wasn't $600 good, but it was nice, and I'd certainly play a sequel game.

If there ever is a sequel game, it isn't coming from the original devs, Ninja Theory. They're actually working on the equally lovely Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, which we previewed not too long ago. And as much as I'm looking forward to that game, I'd also happily get down on some Heavenly Sword 2. Ninja Theory kills my dream, though.

Studio boss Tameem Antoniades told CVG that they actually made no money from the first game. That would kill anyone's motivation. But worse than that is that Sony owns the license and the game's tech. Antoniades tells CVG that they "probably" would have made a sequel if they could.

"I don't know if Sony made any money on Heavenly Sword but we didn't," he said. "But we couldn't do Heavenly Sword 2 as a multi-platform because it's owned by Sony, the tech we developed for that game is also owned by Sony."

Fudge. Oh well. Just call it something else and change the art a bit, eh?
