Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 is still slated to launch at some point in 2024, arriving exclusively on Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC, as well as being available day one through Xbox Game Pass.

Analysis: It looks amazing, so let's get a release date

This game continues to look absolutely amazing, and I love the overall tone the developers are opting for. That said, it is just a bit weird that we don't have a firm release date yet. Hopefully that changes early on next year, and I can definitely imagine that Microsoft might hold another Developer_Direct presentation that could include Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 and other titles.
