Many months ago, Microsoft acquired developer Ninja Theory that's known for making games like DmC: Devil May Cry and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
While part of the team is working on a project called Bleeding Edge, the rest of the team seems to be making a AAA game in Unreal Engine 4. It's unclear how long it'll take to make these games because the studio is still looking for developers.
