Yesterday, Team Ninja officially announced the relaunch of two of its classic franchises, including the Ninja Gaiden hardcore slasher series.
After that, some players began to wonder how the studio was going to pull the production of several more projects, when Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and Rise of the Ronin were already hanging on its account, preparing for release in 2023 and 2024, respectively.
The way out of this situation may be the transfer of part of the planned games to third-party developers.
According to insider Nick Baker, Ninja Gaiden will be rebooted by PlatinumGames studio, best known for such titles as Bayonetta, Vanquish, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and NieR: Automata.
"Damn it, I was told that the studio that signed up to create Ninja Gaiden is PlatinumGames."
Earlier this year, Team Ninja stated in an interview with VGC that it was ready to outsource the new part of Ninja Gaiden to a third-party team.
If Baker's source is really right, then PlatinumGames may be the right choice, given the studio's long history in creating action games.
