Ninja Theory Co-Founder, Hellblade Director Tameem Antoniades No Longer At Studio

Polygon noticed during a hands-on preview of Hellblade II at Ninja Theory’s Cambridge, U.K.-based studio that there was no trace of Antoniades. A spokesperson for Xbox confirmed later that Antoniades was no longer working at Ninja Theory.

“On my visit, there was no sign or mention of Ninja Theory’s flamboyant founder and Hellblade writer-director Tameem Antoniades,” Polygon writes in its Hellblade II preview. “An Xbox spokesperson later confirmed to Polygon that he is no longer with the studio. Antoniades was involved in Hellblade 2 in the early stages, but the game now has a trio of creative leads: environment art director Dan Attwell, visual effects director Mark Slater-Tunstill, and audio director David Garcia.” 

Hellblade II hits Xbox Series X/S and PC on May 21.
