'Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice' Is Getting a Sequel for Next-Gen Xbox

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, a game that walked a tightrope (it worked for some, and didn't work for others) when it came to telling a story about mental health, is getting a follow-up. Its sequel is coming to Microsoft’s new console, the Xbox Series X. Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division, used the game to promote the new console, saying that footage from the trailer was captured entirely in-game.

Y’all, I’m starting to get excited. We’re nearly in a new console year. The dramatic reveals! The petty sniping! The unfulfilled expectations! It’s gonna be wild.

Imagine if they had just made a very good action game about metal as fuck pagan looking shit instead of the game where having severe mental health issues makes you The Special.
