Ninja Theory's fantastical take on mental health issues Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will now release in 2017, in case you hadn't figured that out already. The ambitious indie experiment, which is being developed without publisher intrusion, has gone through multiple changes since its inception – but despite finding its way of late, will not deploy until next year.

The Cambridge-based developer says that other project cancellations and a collaboration with Epic Games on some unreal motion capture technology have pushed its progress back, but seeing as this is a passion project for the firm, it's not required to hit any real deadlines. We reckon that it's got the basis of something solid here, so hopefully it can take its time and deliver something special.
