Ryse 2 cancelled

#1BushidoEffect3Posted 7/4/2014 8:04:19 PM(edited)
Negative news reports continue to circle around Crytek. With its Homefront game already in question, now a Ryse sequel is said to be cancelled.

A few days ago, reports circulated that financial worries at Crytek UK were putting the development of a new Homefront title in question. There were also off-the-record reports that employees had not been receiving paychecks.

Now, new reports from Kotaku and Eurogamer indicate that the fiscal worries run deeper. According to Eurogamer, disagreements about ownership of the Ryse property have led to a falling out between Crytek and Microsoft and the cancellation of a Ryse sequel. This sequel was said to be a full-on action game, using conventional controls and not Kinect.

Now, it appears the game will not happen. The report also says that unpaid employees may be seeking legal action against Crytek.

If Ryse was multiplatform it would have at least made enough money to prevent Crytek from some of the money trouble.

Oh well. The first Ryse wasn't all that great anyway.

It's just a matter of time until MS picks the IP off Crytek's corpse for cheap after Crytek goes under.

I'm not really surprised by this news. Look at the reviews for Ryse, they're terrible. Hell, previews of the game reported that it was pretty mediocre even before launch. I could think of countless games that are better than Ryse going all the way back to the NES. The only crying about the cancellation are MS fanboys. Nobody else cares about Ryse.

If Ryse had been multiplatform, it wouldn't have had the benefit of exclusive promotions, high-profile positioning within Microsoft's events, and a portion of Microsoft's advertising spend. It would have been just one more launch multiplatform, and wouldn't have stood out for any particular reason. It would have been lost in the pile, and probably would have sold less as a result.
