Over the weekend, Team Ninja president Fumihiko Yasuda hinted at a potential Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive revival. However, in a statement given to VGC, Team Ninja creative director Tom Lee explained that the studio has nothing to announce at this time.
“Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden are both long-standing pillar franchises for Team Ninja. These celebrated titles are synonymous with our studio history and reputation,” Lee said. “It goes without saying that when speaking about the development of our past and future projects, both of these important titles cannot be left without mention. However, there are no details or information to share on either of these franchises at this present time.”
“Like many of our dedicated fans, we share the enthusiasm for the return of these beloved titles,” Lee continues. “And we will be sure to provide a proper update (if and) when that day arrives.”
Team Ninja hasn’t worked on either series since Ninja Gaiden 2: Razor’s Edge (2012) and Dead or Alive 6 (2019) though Yasuda began teasing a possible revival in September 2022, but nothing has come of it yet.
