Looks like the latest title by Ninja Theory has leaked ahead of its official reveal planned for E3 2019. The studio was purchased by Microsoft a year ago, and today we have a rather credible rumour in regards to what it has been working on.
The mysterious game in question appears to be called Bleeding Edge – it’s a 4v4 multiplayer melee action with a remarkable cast of characters. The game resembles Overwatch a lot – mainly due to the chosen design approach and visual style. However, the current rumoured gameplay format and the emphasis on melee fights make a huge difference. This is a rather bold move by Microsoft – to ask the studio, best known for its singleplayer games, to develop a multiplayer action. However, given the expertise Ninja Theory has, the gameplay part will likely turn out exceptionally well, although there’s a fair question how well exactly it is going to work for a competitive genre. Honestly, we’d better see another singleplayer title from the makers of Hellblade.
Apparently, the game will be an Xbox One exclusive; however, there’s a chance it will also release on Windows 10 PC. We’ll know for sure during Microsoft’s press conference at E3 2019. For now, you can enjoy the leaked trailer:
