Ninja Theory’s Bleeding Edge Will No Longer Receive Updates
As announced via the game’s official Twitter account, Bleeding Edge will no longer receive updates from developer Ninja Theory. Bleeding Edge is a competitive online multiplayer game published by Microsoft that launched in 2020. Though the game will no longer be updated, it will still be playable across Xbox and PC for the time being. Ninja Theory will now focus on its current projects like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II and Project: Mara.
With the studio now focusing on our new projects (Senua’s Saga, Project Mara & The Insight Project) we have decided that there will be no further content updates for Bleeding Edge. The game is still playable on Xbox and PC. Thank you to the fans & keep teaming up & causing chaos!
