Last year, Ninja Theory stepped out of its comfort zone and launched a 4v4 multiplayer brawler known as Bleeding Edge. The game had similar vibes to Overwatch but with more focus on melee combat. Unfortunately, the game didn't go on to become a huge success and now, Ninja Theory is officially moving on.
Over on Twitter, Ninja Theory announced that Bleeding Edge will get “no further content updates”, meaning no new characters, maps, game modes or anything. Instead, the team that was working on Bleeding Edge will be joining one of Ninja Theory's other projects.
With the studio now focusing on our new projects (Senua’s Saga, Project Mara & The Insight Project) we have decided that there will be no further content updates for Bleeding Edge. The game is still playable on Xbox and PC. Thank you to the fans & keep teaming up & causing chaos!

Bleeding Edge may not be getting any more updates but the game will remain playable on Xbox and PC in its current form. The development team will dissolve and move on to Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, Project Mara and The Insight Project.
This isn't the most surprising news, as Bleeding Edge's player count quickly dropped after launch and did not recover.
