The developers of Ninja Theory have announced the end of the content updates for the team shooter Bleeding Edge. The British studio wants to use the resources for other titles.
Like ninja theory on Twitter announced, there will be no more content updates for the team shooter Bleeding Edge. In their post, the developers indicated that they wanted to use the freed up resources for in-house new titles such as Senua’s Saga, Project Mara and The Insight Project.
With the studio now focusing on our new projects (Senua’s Saga, Project Mara & The Insight Project) we have decided that there will be no further content updates for Bleeding Edge. The game is still playable on Xbox and PC. Thank you to the fans & keep teaming up & causing chaos!

Bleeding Edge only came out last year but never really picked up speed. It is now clear that there will be no more turnaround for the game. The developer’s decision comes as no surprise. Bleeding Edge never reached the number of players the project needed to sustain itself. If you take a look at the game’s unofficial Steam statistics, you can see a total of eleven players online at peak times – throughout the entire month of December.
Of course it is a shame to see such a passionate project go under after such a short time. Instead, the focus is now more and more on new games. It will be interesting to see when Ninja Theory will reveal more information about the new titles. Since 2017, the developers have released at least one game every year. So we can rightly hope for an early date for at least one of the new games.
If you still want to indulge in nostalgia a little, you can still play Bleeding Edge on PC and Xbox One. You might find one or two last games before the community says goodbye to the title entirely.
