Microsoft announced the Xbox Series X, along with Senua's Saga: Hellblade II at The Game Awards 2019 in December 2019. Since it was announced we haven't heard much on the game.

VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb in October said he believes the plan is to showcase Senua's Saga: Hellblade II at The Game Awards 2021.

Grubb in a new a recent GamesBeat Decides live stream reiterated that he is "leaning towards Hellblade II [to] still be there because I just haven't heard anything to the contrary."

The original entry in the series Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is available for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

The Game Awards 2021 will premiere on December 9 at 5:00 pm PT / 8:00 pm ET. 40 to 50 games will be featured throughout the event.

It was announced there so it would make sense.

This game is going to be gorgeous. I'm just bummed I don't have a Series X to enjoy it on. Hopefully when the game is set to launch, I would have procured a Series X.

Looking forward to seeing this game in action. When we got the in-engine teaser trailer in 2019, Ninja Theory was still working with Unreal Engine 4, they have since transferred the game over to Unreal Engine 5. Ninja Theory is one of Xbox's two best studios on a technical/graphical level, and Hellblade 2 is Xbox Series/PC exclusive, so what they show is going to be our first look at what a capable 1st party studio can do when not limited by last gen systems. This should be a real graphical treat that sets the bar for graphics on this new generation for awhile at least.

No doubt this will be an amazing visual and technical showcase for the Series X. The animation in the first game is among the very few that comes close or matches the mastery of Naughty Dog. Which is no small praise. That being said, while the journey in the first game was intriguing and narratively very well done (gotta play this with headphones to maximize the effect), the gameplay left a bit to be desired with how repetitive and limited in scope it was. So I’m hoping they improve that aspect with more control options and diversify the overall game design more.

Still, this one is among my current top 10 most anticipated games. Hopefully it delivers.
