Enslaved: Oddysey to the West and DmC: Devil May Cry developer Ninja Theory has teased a game announcement for tomorrow, May 24.

No Caption Provided

"Tomorrow. Something new to show," the United Kingdom developer tweeted today.

Ninja Theory's last game was DmC: Devil May Cry, which launched earlier this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game has sold over 1.15 million units to date.

The developer's website states that it has moved on from DmC: Devil May Cry and is now working on "exciting new projects." The studio has no available jobs posted to its careers page.

The studio was also behind Heavenly Sword and Kung Fu Chaos, when Ninja Theory was known as Just Add Monsters.

@bd_devil Lets pretend, just for a minute, that DmC ACTUALLY WAS bad and that it's not just a shit load of butthurt DMC fanboys that are pissed off because their white-haired fratboy emo got shelved for a different artistic approach. Okay. Now, lets see. They've released the quirky and amusing Kung Fu Chaos, the gorgeous Heavenly Sword, and the superb Ensalved: Odyssey to the West.

Where in the **** do you get that they're bad for the industry? They've got 4 games under their belt, 3 original IPs and 1 re-imagining of an already overrated and uninnovative franchise. With the exception of KFC, their games have all scored highly and had decent sales at worst. They're track record is better than a lot of companies in their position. Look at companies like Double Fine, who produce outstanding work, but can never reach the level of sales or attention that companies like Ninja Theory do.

so that will be sometime today then, oh i wonder what it will be because it's not DmC 2 unless they are doing a Devil May Cry 5 (with DmC not being part of the Devil May Cry series but a spin off/reboot) or a Heavenly Sword 2? as long as it's not an Enslaved 2 because Enslaved was a bad game

(it's the 24th at time of posting)

I'm sure it'll be good, but I think everyone needs to step away from DmC. It was a decent game, but didn't feel like a DmC game, it might as well just have been a new title.

@OJ_the_LION Yeah, I just don't get the need for all of this childish hatred. Regardless of what anyone says, it was a really good game. It was a lot of fun and it looked really unique.

It is a shame that it was tied to the DmC series and not something new as it would have done really well. They've proven that they can create an atmospheric game with exciting combat, so hopefully their next game will receive a warm reception.

Well, congratulations, you've managed to reply to every last on one of my posts by basically resorting to insults and convenient ignorance. You haven't even attempted to tackle a SINGLE ONE of the points or questions that I pose :-)

I'll leave you to it now dude, there's little point in me trying to convince everyone that you're a prat when your incoherent, immature ramblings do such a stand-up job as it is

Thank you for the entertainment value at least :-)

@Strider8009 @Mamamf Lolol I'm not defending the game, I'm defending the ppl that are entitled to have their own opinions and you are always calling them trolls and bashing them. That aint cool. Unless, you're trolling, if so you got me.

Just finished DmC last night. I actually really like the game. I have played all the Devil May Cry games and I liked it better than 4 and 2. Probably my favorite after 3. I have no problem with the new Dante, i wasn't attached to the character really, never really thought he had depth. But then again Im not the hardcore fan, so I guess thats why. But as a game (putting character aside and all) its really good and fun. Can't wait to see what Ninja Theory does next.

Thank goodness we're not getting a DmC 2 then by the looks of it. Not that its a bad game by any means, I had a heck of a lot of fun with it but it just wasn't a good Devil May Cry game at all.

@koospetoors It was a good DMC game better than 2 and 4.

@mindfreak4563 Please inform yourself on why people complained so much about this game before posting. It makes you look smarter.

@mindfreak4563 and for everything being red, bosses being generic, silly street culture tryharding and Dante being a nonsensical pseudo-sensitive badass wannabe...wait he doesn't even make any sense.

@Strider8009 That's the point, nobody cares about the "paid reviews", the "everybody who doesn't aggree with me is a troll", the " I played the game so i know better". Stop being such a pain! How did your parents missed when they were aborting you is beyond me. Go play a game and leave the internet

Sorry, you've lost me... What question about DmC am I asking? When did I claim to be knowledgeable about DmC?

Are we having a completely different conversation? :-S

P.S: Still waiting for that example of somebody here saying that DmC was a good game because of the good reviews. I'm sure you'll be owning me with that example any second now... ;-)

@justinka777 @natalieyan Me too.

All this whining and moaning about the main character's hair, and other creative decisions Ninja Theory made.

I had never planned to buy or play this game before, but right now I'm seriously thinking about buying this game next week just to spite these people. I've got enough spare cash, I probably would have blown on Magic cards I don't need anyway.

Or maybe I'll do it the week after, when I pick up my pre-ordered copy of Remember Me. I don't mind giving Capcom money for quality games.

@Lhomity @justinka777 @natalieyan Its the first devil may cry game that i've played and I rated it an 8 out of 10. I'd never have bought it if it hadn't have been remodeled. I wouldn't have jumped into the series at DMC5.

Its a great game, not the best characters but I kinda liked having an ass as the main character. The combat was just plain fun and I spent lots of time perfecting my combos.

Perhaps it should have been labelled something else and they should have just let the devil may cry series die at 4. It would have been a great standalone. RIP devil may cry, lol. I guess they tried.
