Crytek's Ryse 2 canned as financial struggle spreads to Shanghai

Eurogamer's own sources confirmed this today. One person close to Crytek told us a pre-production deal for Ryse 2 was on the cards, and that Microsoft wanted to do the deal, but its terms proved a sticking point. (Crytek, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Lol good use of one bubble. Its sad though. I believe crytek had a very good engine and thought they could have been so much more. Wonder what was to blame for failures? We always said there games were tech demos but I honestly thought the crysis series was solid and that ryse was compelling. The companys foundation was in graphics and not game play. I think they should have brought in quality devs to create game play that gamers would say, take my money. Maybe ryse should have been multi plat? Maybe more free to play? Mobile versions of cry engine..idk but its sad to see the troubles with crytek.

It's probably gonna be a while until PC fans get another game like Crysis 1 to brag about.

Was Ryse the final nail in the coffin or something? Since they said that Ryse development was "catastrophic".

Sucks how this is happening, to this company. They have some Rare developers too. They should of make Timesplitters long ago man. Heck they wouldn't even have these problems, if that game turn out to be number 1.

When a company isn't paying their staff's wages it is only a matter of time before they go under.

I suspect when the receivers are called in they will start selling off the IP for cheap and Microsoft will snap it up.

...no wages does equals company that's about to go under; The same thing happened at Factor 5 a little after Lair was released, some or all of the dev team sued the company, if I'm not mistaken

Ryse 2 for PS4 confirmed. But seriously IF this is legit and MS doesn't want it unless they can extort Crytek for the rights to the IP we can surmise Ryse 2 is now a possibility on the PS4. Never change MS lol
Blaze929  +   330d ago
ha, "extort"

it's business. Why would i fund the entire development of a game, help build the brand and popularity, just for you to put it on competition systems later? Especially when the first didn't sell that great?

It's a situation of "give us the game, or it doesn't come out at all." because who else is going to help them publish it? Sony? After "the first one was crap"? LOL

If Crytec were smart, they would've let MS get the IP and just take the money to make it.

Not like they are exactly sitting on a "golden" IP. Now it's just dead.

Given Crytek's financial situation NO it doesn't make ANY sense staying exclusive when they need their games on multiple consoles to stay afloat. In fact I'd wager that Ryse being exclusive to the X1 actually cost them money and contributing to their money woes. Remember deals like Titanfall and Ryse were signed sealed and delivered BEFORE the PS4/X1 were out and most publishers hedged their bets that the X1 was going to be the market leader but nobody told Sony that and here we are obviously being exclusive on the losing machine isn't the best position to be in. Being multi plat or exclusive to the market leader would be and Crytek with Ryse & EA with Titanfall both lost money being console exclusive on the Xbox one and it looks like at least in Crytek's case they won't make that mistake a second time around this gen.
Prime157  +   330d ago
No, it sounds like they wanted to keep the intellectual rights... something that is huge in business. Characters, title, anything.... which COULD mean they wanted to bring it to other platforms, but, OBJECTIVELY, does not directly infer that they would.

I feel sorry for third party studios that give up rights for a paycheck... often the original vision for the game is lost.
mhunterjr  +   330d ago
It doesn't sound like they wanted it on PS4, the deal revolved around MS being the publisher. Why would MS finance a game that will end up on PS? No company would even think of bringing such an idea to the bargaining table.

It sounds like they just wanted to retain ownership of their IP, like Insomniac has with sunset overdrive, or Respawn with Titan Fall. They just wanted MS to handle the distribution.

What I don't understand is why Cryteck wouldn't sell the IP... If the only thing keeping my company afloat was a deal around mildly-received IP, I'd take the deal. It makes no sense that they would sell far cry, but not Ryse.

Microsoft profits from and publishes PC games. That's not the same as them publishing a game that is going to end up on a Sony platform.

That is an interesting example, but when discussing financials, i don't think it's fair to compare An expensive AAA title like Ryse to a downloadable title like Joe Danger. Your point is well taken, but in this scenario, a similar decision would make no sense. For example, you'd never see Sony allowing Resistance to end up on xbox.

Nice try, but titanfall is not published by MS. It's published by EA. Ryse was funded and published by Microsoft, and the deal on the table would have been another publishing deal.

MSprofits from the PC gaming business as a whole, since the games drive PC sales. also, If Ryse was going to be published my MS, it's pretty likely that they would be the publishers of the PC version, especially of they were funding the games development.

I think MS should acquire them.

MS almost acquired them along time ago until a little game called Halo released in which MS didn't feel the need to buy them afterwards.

If I remember correctly Crytek was interested in being acquired by MS so they can develop a syfy game. But MS wasn't interested because they got Halo and it was a success plus they didn't want another similar games from them.

EDIT: Clarification here.


I think its about time MS snatches them up now.

Yeah I agree. But Spencer is in charge he'll treat them right.

Rare's not forced to make kiddy Kinect shovelware anymore thanks to Phil they have some projects in the works right now.

The old MS would continue the Rare Kinect brigade. But Phil giving them freedom to make whatever they want now.

"For Gamers sake we need Crytek to stand on their own and go back to making games that made them great in the first place, fun open world, stealthy games. not Ryse 1,2,3,4 that Microsoft wants..."

@Tar I don't see it being a bad thing MS and Crytek were like an on and off again couple.

"The games aren't bad but they have nothing the shines outside of graphics and i think xbox fans can agree that Graphics are the least important part of a game rite?"

For me its all about balance.


Remedy's Quantum Break graphically looks great. The presentation is phenomenal. But its an action game at heart. So you know the gameplay will be fluid and nice like the Max Pain. Along with fantastic graphics.

for me its balance, personally. Other than that I don't speak for other Xbox fans obviously you gotta ask them.

Yes I would've, Ryse was pretty solid Hack & Slash game...It got smashed for having "Repetitive combat" when it had the same fighting system as MOST Hack & Slash games... So in reviewers eyes they walked in with a negative opinion and came out with the same opinion.

I personally would love if it remained on one platform because it lets them focus on building a stronger experience.

Even taking away all the troll reviews (both negative and positive trolls) you're going to end up with a game with a score more in line with the game journo review scores. I'm not sure people would say a 6/10 is truly something to brag about or consider as a "solid" or "good" game overall.

Not good business sense when you think about it.. This situation is just like THQ, why buy them when you can just wait it out for them to go out of business and then buy the IP's you want at auction.

Been reading more of the Crytek situation and it seems it's a lot worse than I even thought.. Unless they do something, they will be out of business before the end of the year.

If I was in charge of Crytek, I'd try to sell (and if that doesn't work) close ALL the other Crytek studios down (UK, Shanghai etc). They could try and sell the 'Crysis' IP rght now to EA for some immediate injection of capital but it won't be enough, at least not in the long run.

I can see EA buying them out if they don't make it through this alone.

Having said that...Oculus have a LOT of Facebook cash floating around right now and I'm sure they're keen to grab developers skilled at crafting ultra-realistic graphics. Obtaining the CryEngine and thus making the next iteration heavily VR-centric might be another notch in their belt.

Because they wanted the rights to an IP they're funding again? Get real and take off your fanboy goggles. Did you say the same when insomaniac said sod wasn't a PS exclusive BC Sony wanted the rights to it?

↓↓ wait are you blaming Ms for Crytek's situation? Ms funded Ryse and Paid Crytek. All Crytek had to do was make the game and receive their share from the sales. In no way could Ryse have affected them.

And for insomaniac it's a new IP. Ms isn't gonna right off the bat want to get the IP from them unless it has potential. That's why ms decided to fund them also to see how it turns out. And if it sells over a million I can ms wanting yo make another contract deal with them allowing to keep the IP but it can only be made for xbox

Which looking at it, looking at this situation is all the more strange.. MS wants the Ryse IP, Crytek says no, sequel canned.. Insomniac gets to keep IP for SO - why one and not the other? Apart from Fuse, Insomniac is a total unknown on the XBOX brand, whereas Crytek were familiar with it, releasing numerous games on it.

All I can say for Insomniac is that, their game had better sell gangbuster numbers, otherwise I can see them being in this situation in the near future.. and no matter which console you favor, would be very bad to all of us gamers.

Christopher  +   330d ago
Not really the same at all. Insomniac wanted to make their own game whereas Sony wanted them to keep working on the IPs that Sony owned. Insomniac made a good amount of profit on the Sony IPs to make their own IP and Sony is still working with Insomniac to make their IPs.

In fact, what's stupid about Insomniac is that they signed an exclusivity deal instead of doing what they wanted, which was putting a game out on multiple platforms to reach a much wider audience. But, maybe their plan is to put the sequel out on more platforms or something or have a timed exclusive deal on the first? I'm not sure, but this is not what they originally wanted, that being making another console exclusive title.

I doubt MS would want to buy this company and take on their financial burden. Even though if they bought them they would have access to the cry-engine that they could lend out to all their 1st party studios.

I agree with some of the comments above, crytek probably wanted to go pc and ps4.
If you think about it theres really no incentive for crytek to make ryse 2 for xb1. Maybe if there lucky theyll sell 1.5 million. Crytek was put in a bad spot cause ms rushed the consoles launch and no doubt rushed cryteks production of ryse robbing ryse of all it could have been. What crytek needs to do now is do what all the other companies are doing and reusing assets. Port over crysis 1,2,3 along with the map editor and add bots if it doesnt already, i would pay 60 even a 100 especially if the game was at least 900p with that kick ass editor. Crytek is in ruin because of them and ms.

Only reason this game tanked was because they bet on Ms.this game needs to be on ps4. I find was crate I'd take 20 mill to ms buy the rights back and put it on ps4

? the game tanked because it was just a QTE snore fest. It has nothing to do with what console it was on.

Holy crap, everything has to be a mega-franchise these days. Five years from now there won't be a single new IP.

People were saying the same thing at the start of last gen. We're still getting a ton of new IPs. Don't worry, that won't happen. At least not for a long while.

IMO, this is why people more and more will start to embrace indie devs. They might be small now, but one hit and they could be your next AAA developers with the new IP. Unfortunately, the status quo seems to still sell. So, many of the AAA publishers aren't willing to take chances on new IP that don't fit the mold of what's currently out there.

Sounds like more "insider" info with no really backing as of now. If it becomes true, I'll wait till someone legit confirms it to believe it. Right now everyone is just referring to a "rumor report" from Kotaku. If one source was enough to believe something like this, then Last Guardian is canned because IGN said so.

Serves them right. After all, these are the people who said, "We're embracing 30fps"!!!!
