The pre-E3 rumor mill has begun to churn, and with it comes a sequel to Heavenly Sword, one of the most underrated games for the PlayStation 3 which many feel lost out as it was released during the troubled launch of the PlayStation 3. According to the latest issue of the UK PlayStation Magazine, PlayGamer, the sequel is in development and takes place 10 years after the events of the first game.
According to the magazine it will be an open-world sandbox title featuring re-playable missions and interactive environments. The magazine goes on to say that the Heavenly Sword weapon will not be available from the start of the game and you will have to work your way to obtaining it by mastering different martial arts.
Seeing as how Ninja Theory, the developer behind the original game went on to multiplatform titles, a sequel would have to be worked on by another team. Now again this is just a rumor so take it for what it’s worth but we do have to hope this is one of those rumors that come true.
