Next-generation Xbox launch titles include 'Ryse' and a new 'Forza'

Microsoft is working on a number of launch titles for its new Xbox console. One of the first games to launch on the next Xbox will be Ryse, according to multiple sources familiar with Microsoft's Xbox plans. Microsoft originally unveiled Ryse at E3 2011, promising an exclusive Xbox 360 release with Kinect functionality. A release has never materialized for Xbox 360 and the company has remained fairly silent about the title's progress, noting that it was still in development in mid-2012 and again earlier this year. The Verge understands that Crytek, along with Microsoft Studios, has been rewriting the game to take advantage of its next-generation console, due later this year.

"We're told Ryse is designed to be Microsoft's new Gears of War / Halo mega launch title"

hmm, well then I guess there will not be a next Halo or GOW, but this game better be good

Yeah these rumours seem oddly specific and quite probable. The gates of information are starting to open.

iGAM3R-VIII1595d ago

So I guess based on these comments 'Ryse' is a Kinect title. If they call that a mega launch title, idk what is because that does not make sense

M-M1594d ago

@thechosenone's disagrees

No one can take a joke these days I guess.

NewMonday1595d ago (Edited 1595d ago )

about time MS made a big new hardcore game.

edit: looked up the Ryse trailer, it's for Kinect, sorry my mistake.

majiebeast1595d ago

Its made by Crytek they only make tech demo's and benchmark tools disguised as games.

JakemanPS319941595d ago

idk farcry is pretty good :D I'm also a fan of crysis 2.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1595d ago

lol u know kinect is big when They ask AAA devs to make a motion game instead of a franchise.

ALLWRONG1595d ago

I wouldn't talk! you support the PS3, it's had one core game since 2011.

nukeitall1595d ago

Ryse has the ability to use Kinect, but it is a controller based game. You can use it without Kinect.

That has already been announced way back when.

Hold up, a Kinect title is designed to be their mega launch title....

AngelicIceDiamond1595d ago

@Maria "Better With Kinect" No longer a just Kinect title.

whoyouwit041595d ago (Edited 1595d ago )

You sony fans just find any thing to complain about. if you actually read the article, you could see everything they talked about really does sound interesting. one thing you Sony fans have lost an auguring point they said Ryse, a zombie game, and family game set on an island with Pixar movie-style graphics. Did you notice something about these titles? they all brand new ips and different genres. one last thing, It was said from the off that ryse is a kinect game, however, it could be played with a controller.

ichimaru1595d ago

you can play it with a controller or Kinect.....this stated for a while now

Convas1595d ago (Edited 1595d ago )

Ryse has been reworked people and from its announcement, Crytek already confirmed that it's controller-compatible as well.

"Better with Kinect", not Kinect Required.

Idk about Ryse but Forza should be great on next gen.

Gamer19821594d ago

Depends on what they add.. Hopefully it wont just be a graphics upgrade as games like GT and Forza already look great on current consoles..

stage881595d ago

Oh another Forza...


HammadTheBeast1595d ago

I disagree, racing never gets old, can't wait for competition between this and GT6.

Auron1594d ago

whats wrong with a next gen Forza?

Gamer19821594d ago

People gotta realise what can they add to Forza and GT to make people buy it? Then again people are sheep and buy a new game if the devs shove a new number on it. Take FIFA, Madden, COD and every other yearly series for proof of it.. Drive club and actually Forza horizon are what the gaming world needs a bit of variety.. Shame its because they are differnt people don't buy them..

"We're told Ryse is designed to be Microsoft's new Gears of War / Halo mega launch title"

"We’re not working on an existing franchise, we’re looking to build the next Halo" ~Black Tusk Studios

So now we have two studios all wanting to make a new Halo? (Excluding 343 who are making a new Halo)

Gh05t1594d ago

Black Tusk Studios sounds like it is talking about impact not so much genre.

sikorsky141595d ago

you do realise 343I is still working on Halo 5 and 6 right.... and why would Microsoft abandon Halo?

Ryse being the new HALO/Gears of Microsoft?

I honestly can't picture that. No matter how good the new Kinect technology will be, core gamers will not be heavily interested in a motion-control game. For that reason alone it's almost impossible for the game to be the new HALO, even though it might be a good game in itself.

It's actually kind of depressing to see that a Kinect game is considered a "mega-launch" title while Sony has already shown strong titles which are as hardcore as they can get like Infamous Second Son and Killzone Shadow Fall. First impressions are important, Microsoft, so choose what game to focus on carefully when you showcase the console. Focusing on a Kinect game as a "mega title" is off-putting for me.

Lvl_up_gamer1594d ago

Well Ryse will be a controller + Kinect hybrid title so I am not sure I understand the hate from so many people....oh wait, this is N4G where the Sony fanboys reign. Makes sense.

Mediamolicule can show a BS title at the Sony's last conference where you mold things on screen yet that's awesome on this site. Knack looks like a title for 12 year olds yet it's awesome and for the core on this site. Ryse is being developed by CRYTEK which is one of the best developers out there where on this site only they are considered crappy.

As for Forza, we all saw this coming. I can't wait for a next gen Forza. The #1 highest rated racing sim since release on consoles is about to get a next gen racing title. This can only be viewed as great unless you only own a PS3 and think that half-assed train wreck of a GT5 game was better.....LMFAO.

PGR+Forza as launch titles for the next gen Xbox = car lovers dreams come true.

Ryse is almost certain, as for Forza I think it will likely be a PGR game. But if its Forza 5 thats one AAA game guaranteed for launch

MariaHelFutura1595d ago

The 720 news seems to be pouring in, we could be getting close to an official announcement.

sway_z1595d ago (Edited 1595d ago )

Yeah Maria, it does sure seem to be heating up...something must be poppin' soon :)
