Aaron Greenberg of the Xbox marketing team recently met Ninja Theory. For those that are unfamiliar with Ninja theory, they’re the studio that developed Hellblade: Senua’s sacrifice which was ported to the Xbox One this year.
The publication of this meeting implies perhaps that we can expect an exciting announcement at this year’s X018 in November.
Seeing as how Hellblade hasn’t existed for more than 2 years, it’s unlikely that there will be a major announcement so soon. However, this statement from Greenberg implies everyone is to be informed of something soon.
Great day of meetings with the team here at Ninja Theory Excited to be working with such a talented and creative team who brings so much unique passion to everything they do!
Taking into account Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Ninja Theory, we could expect more revelations on their upcoming projects soon.
X018 is Xbox’s biggest inside view event. Which emphasizes all things Xbox, whether it be news about upcoming games or an announcement for a sequel to an older title.
The event is set to take place on November 10th during the Xbox Fanfest in Mexico. For those not able to physically attend, the event will also be live-streamed worldwide for everyone to tune in to all the updates together. During the Inside Xbox live-stream, several rumors circulate on what to expect news about from the massive event.
The most anticipated announcements are of course games. The line-up for which is enough to hype players around the world. Updates on games are definitely to be expected, such as:
- Crackdown 3
- Ori and the will of the Wisps
- Forza Horizon 4
- Age of Empires IV
- Gears Tactics

Another insight we hope to get from X018 is regarding the Microsoft acquisitions of companies such as Ninja Theory, Compulsion games, Undead Labs and Playground games. What these companies plan to do further ahead and how this acquisition will affect them is something we all anticipate the answer to this November. As the countdown to X018 begins.
