Hellblade Mental Health Consultant Jenny Esson Passes Away Due To COVID-19

Team Ninja have confirmed that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice contributor Jenny Esson has passed away at the age of 45 due to COVID-19. While Esson was not a programmer, she worked as a mental health consultant during the development of Hellblade.

In a statement to the BBC, Esson’s family stated:

“She was charismatic, loving, passionate, outrageously funny and loved to laugh.

“She was fiercely protective of us and always proud to provide for us, look after us. She was happiest at home and was passionate and proud of her work.

“If Jenny saw something she felt was wrong she wouldn’t just moan about it.

“She would set off to change it as many of you in the trust know and have had her in your ear tenaciously driving her ideas forward. She hated social injustice and stigmatising of any kind.”
