Ryse is alive, Crytek 'really, really happy with it'

Missing in action Kinect title still hitting milestones, dev confirms

Elusive Kinect title Ryse is still in development and developer Crytek is "really, really happy" with how it's shaping up, the studio's told CVG.


Speaking in a GDC interview last week, Crytek's GM of games, Nick Button-Brown confirmed the gory Roman motion brawler is hitting development milestones, and it'll show it publicly "at some stage".

"Yeah, absolutely [it's alive]," Button-Brown told CVG. "It's doing really well and we're really, really happy with where it's going.

"It's our annual thing; we show a trailer for Ryse at E3," he joked. "It's going really, really well. The team actually delivered a milestone yesterday, which was quite nice. It's kind of good to see that.

"We're really happy with it and at some stage will be showing and giving more information about it. Unfortunately we're kind of constrained by our publisher."

Ryse is described as a "visceral, action-packed experience that brings ancient Rome to life through the stunning visuals and innovative gameplay". So far all we've seen of it (in proper gameplay form, at least) is last year's trailer.

In the same GDC interview, Crytek told CVG it's set to announce a "spectacular" console and PC game next month - and it's not Ryse or Homefront.
