Ninja Theory didn’t make any money on Heavenly Sword.

So we’ve recently given you all a peak preview at the upcoming Enslaved game in the form of eight screenshots. Most people like them but then there was a big “huh” by many people. Enslaved is coming out on both the PS3 and the Xbox 360?
Why would this happen when Heavenly Sword for the PS3 did so well, well;
"It’s difficult. Heavenly Sword came out pretty early on the PS3, and we sold, I think, a million and a half copies, and that’s still not enough as an independent studio to break even," said co-founder Tameem Antoniades.
"The publisher potentially breaks even at that point, but the developers don’t," he added, and it’s for this reason that the developer chose to go multi-platform with its latest upcoming quest, Enslaved…It’s just that when so many people have Xbox – I mean over half the market or more has Xbox 360s – why limit yourself to one platform?"
That’s right in a recent interview with CVG co-founder Tameem Antoniades says they didn’t even break even with Heavenly Sword, so let’s hope Enslaved being released across two platforms will enable this company to make money and ultimately make more games.
