Ninja Theory's critically acclaimed Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice has been rated for Xbox One on Taiwanese Game Software Rating Regulations. Unless it was a clerical error, this means it will soon be ported to Microsoft's console.

Up until now, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice has only been available on PC and PlayStation 4 and considering how well received it was, it will be both a relief and a source of joy for Xbox One owners. Gematsu's sleuths worked their magic and found out the game has been rated for Xbox One in Taiwan as well as Australia.

Ninja Theory haven't officially announced their intentions to port the game to Xbox One but the fact the game appeared on boards leaves little to no doubt. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice launched on PC and PS4 on 8 August 2017 and has been winning gamers' hearts ever since.

In the game players control Senua, a Celtic warrior who is on a quest to save the soul of her lover from the goddess Hela. While it sounds like a crossover with Thor: Ragnarok, the game has a much darker tone than the movie and Hela doesn't look anything like Cate Blanchett.

The game was critically acclaimed, scoring 81 on Metacritic in a rare case of users and critics seeing eye to eye where user rating landed at 8.2. This third person action game initially couldn't be delivered to Xbox One due to the small size of the studio developing it but it seems to have overcome the limitations since.

Hellblade has exceeded Ninja Theory's expectations and in November 2017 the game had sold half a million copies within three months since its release. As no official confirmation came from Ninja Theory, there is still no determined date for Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice release on Xbox One.
