Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is a 2013 hack and slash video game developed by Red Fly Studio[1] and published by Activision based on the Mirage Studios characters of the same name.

The game was released on August 28, 2013 for Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.[1] The game features a four-player online mode and offline two-player co-op.[3][4] The PlayStation 3 version was delayed, to polish the game more before release and to address issues from the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows versions of the game.[citation needed] On April 1, 2014, it was announced by Red Fly Studio that the PlayStation 3 version would be released on April 15.[2] The PlayStation 3 release featured a very identical version of the game, with hardly any of the aforementioned issues addressed, despite Red Fly Studio's promise to present an experience polished to the highest of levels.

Reception[edit]

The Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows versions of the game were received generally negative by critics, and the Xbox 360 version holds a score of 38/100 on Metacritic.[5] Game Informer gave the game a 2/10, calling it "terrible in every way".[citation needed] The PlayStation 3 version of the game was awarded a disappointing score of a 4/10 by Push Square.[citation needed]

IGN was slightly more positive, as it gave the game a 6.1/10, while praising for its video within the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series and its arcade mode.[citation needed]

The game was pulled from all digital stores in January 2017 as Activision chose not to renew the license.
