Ninja Theory announced that future content updates for its over-the-top multiplayer game Bleeding Edge will stop. The developer claims that while the game will remain playable on both Xbox and PC, the studio will no longer focus on any new content for it as they shift gear towards the upcoming Hellblade II and Project Mara.
Bleeding Edge has not done as well as Ninja Theory hoped. The game was originally announced during the Xbox E3 press conference back in 2019 and released in March 2020 to an unfortunately low player base.
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!

As much as they tried, players just never picked it up and it slowly dropped in users. While there are still gamers playing the game, it seems that the time it took to develop content for it won’t be worthwhile for the studio.
There is good news. This means that Ninja Theory can now focus on its upcoming projects including Saga: Hellblade II, Project Mara, and The Insight Project. All three of the games have received some rather positive feedback since they were announced. Ninja Theory showed off some in-engine footage of 1 last week and it looked rather spectacular.
None of these current titles has a release date.
