Hellblade 2 Built on Unreal Engine 5

Today on Xbox Wire Microsoft gave us an article about everything we need to know about the Xbox Series X. Although the article’s primary focus was the all-powerful console they did drop an interesting nugget on the highly anticipated Hellblade 2.

Hellblade 2 was announced at the Video Game Awards in 2019 along with the Xbox Series X. Since then we have not heard much about that title. Most assume we will be blessed with tons of info during the Xbox 1st party games event in July. However, today we did receive a bit of news as Xbox announced that Hellblade 2 will be running on Unreal Engine 5.

The power of Xbox Series X was first demonstrated with the unveiling of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.  The team will be building the game on Unreal 5 and leveraging the power of Xbox Series X to bring the Hellblade franchise to levels never before seen. The footage shown was captured in-engine and reflects the power of Xbox Series X available to developers to deliver new universes, experiences, and games in ways you have never imagined.

It is great to hear that when gamers get their hands on this title that it will be powered by Unreal Engine 5. From the looks of the demo Epic revealed running on Ps5 a few weeks back, Xbox fans are in for a treat. Come on July!
