Bleeding Edge, the new game from British game developer Ninja Theory, will be released March 24 next year, as was temporarily shown on the game’s store page. A closed beta will start in mid-February.
Microsoft has since updated the Bleeding Edge store page, but Eurogamer has a screenshot with proof of the March 24 launch date. Xbox Game Pass owners who pre-order the game will be able to participate in two closed beta testing rounds.
The first of these takes place February 14, the second starts March 13. Furthermore, the page made it clear that players with a pre-order or gamers who play the game before March 31 are eligible for a Punk Pack with three skins, extra taunts, a sticker pack and a virtual hoverboard.
Ninja Theory announced the game in June. It is a 4-versus-4 multiplayer game with an emphasis on melee weapon combat and is coming for PC and Xbox One. Ninja Theory is a British Microsoft studio that made games like Heavenly Sword, Devil May Cry and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice in the past.
