Back in 2013, developer Crytek showed off their game for the Microsoft Xbox One in the form of Ryse: Son of Rome. As expected of Crytek, the game looked quite flawless in terms of its graphics and based on what we can see, proved to be a pretty gory action game as well. Now we’re sure some gamers are thinking that if it looked this good now, what will the sequel to the game look like?
Well we have some bad news for you. According to a series of reports, it seems that the sequel to Ryse: Son of Rome might have been cancelled and might never surface. This is apparently due to issues between Microsoft and Crytek. The issues in question are related to intellectual property and apparently Microsoft agreed to fund Ryse 2 but only if they could buy the Ryse IP from Crytek as well.
However Crytek felt that this is a franchise that they are not willing to sell, which is why Microsoft might have decided not to fund the game in the end, which means that Ryse 2 may not happen. According to a Microsoft spokesperson, they claim that the company “nothing to announce about the future of the franchise at this time.”
This is amidst rumors that Crytek might be filing for bankruptcy, and that many employees of the company have been handing in their resignation. However we should note that all of this are rumors at this point in time, but we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information. In the meantime what do you guys think? Are you disappointed that there might not be a Ryse 2?
