A Smaller Experience
Ninja Theory has explained that Hellblade will be a smaller experience than their previous titles. They claim to be delivering a game of AAA quality but at "half the length" of other games. They did not give specifics regarding the estimated length of the game. They also said that they wanted to bring back the "mid-sized game" which would help fuel additional future projects.
On June 6, 2017 Ninja Theory announced that the game would be released on August 8, 2017 for the Playstation 4 and on PC through Steam and GOG.
