Ryse 2 Could Release On PS4; Ryse Is A Great Foundation, Crytek Not Too Happy With Xbox One Sales

Ryse 2 can be released anywhere (including PlayStation 4) with any publisher, as confirmed by Cevat Yerli. He thinks there's a great foundation for a sequel although nothing can be confirmed right now.

Respawn said the same about Titanfall didn't they? So now we just have to wait for multiplatform Dead Rising 4 and Sunset Overdrive 2... Poor Xbone

Imp0ssibl31444d ago

Dead Rising seems a safe bet, not sure about Sunset Overdrive.

TekoIie1444d ago (Edited 1444d ago )

Best to wait about 6 months after the release and see whether it seems likely. However if we look ats whats happened to most second party exclusives this gen it is very likely to happen.

uptownsoul1444d ago

It seems that 3rd party developers are confident about their Xbox One exclusive games until after their release…Then they give hints that they'll probably go multi platform with the sequel…Sunset Overdrive and Quantum Break will probably go to PC, while their sequels will probably be on all platforms

amiga-man1444d ago (Edited 1444d ago )

If MS don't own the IP then it will always be a distinct possibility for any game, It would make sense for any publisher to want their game out on the strongest selling platform and at this moment that is definitely the PS4 by some distance.

I Believe MS own Quantum Break IP. As for SSOD the first will defo not come to any other console but the sequel could go any way, i think if it is a big success for Xb1 then MS might lock it down, similar to how GOW stayed exclusive to MS.

LordMaim1444d ago

See, now Dead Rising is one that I *would* buy. Even if it's on PC rather than PS4, that was the one exclusive that I was sore to see on the Xbox One. Ryse, not so much.

SSO, that would really depend on the way the contract was worded. I'm not really leaning towards playing it either way, but it's a shame that Insomniac is going to be affected by that deal.

TomShoe1444d ago

Dead Rising 4 has a good chance since the IP is owned by Capcom, they just didn't do anything with it because 2 didn't sell well enough. The odds of SO making it to PS4 is probably slim, as MS likely has the first right of refusal to publish any sequels, should the game do well.

ZodTheRipper1444d ago

Every X1 'Exclusive' seems to go multiplatform some day and other multiplatform games run better on the cheaper PS4. At the same time, PS4 keeps it's exclusives due to smart management by Sony. I feel really bad for people that bet on the wrong horse this gen.

Enemy1443d ago

Sunset Overdrive 2 will probably go multiplatform, yes. The IP belongs to Insomniac, not Microsoft. This was confirmed a long time ago.

darthv721443d ago

if the game does get a sequel released on PS4, lets hope those who criticized the 1st will be more receptive to the 2nd.

Far too often a good game gets hateful remarks by those who never played it because it isnt on their platform of choice.

it's a sad state of affairs that gamers just cant enjoy games no matter the platform.

chrismichaels041443d ago

I already own a PS4, PC and WiiU. I had an Xbox 360 last gen, but it makes no sense to pick up an Xbox One since I can still play most of Xbox Ones biggest "exclusives" without actually needing to own an Xbox One.

I already played Titanfall on PC. Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare is on PS4. Dead Rising 3, Ryse and Project Spark are all coming to PC (and possibly PS4 as well).

AngelicIceDiamond1443d ago

Deadrising sold ok. Maybe the sequel will be multiplat depends.

Yeah I had a feeling Ryse wasn't a big seller. Dead rising and Forza were the hot games at launch.

Prime1571443d ago

@thrust, "waitstation"

So it comes down to "waitstation" vs "NoExclusivesBox" by your logic.

Rimeskeem1443d ago

Of course we cannot be sure about Sunset Overdrive because it is not even out yet.

rainslacker1443d ago

Even if MS doesn't own the IP, they could have publishing rights on console for it. I'm pretty sure that's not the case with Sunset Overdrive, but think MS owns the IP to Quantum Break.

One example that comes to mind of this scenario is Final Fantasy VII in western territories. Sony has publishing rights on console. I don't think this was an indefinite deal, as SE did release the PSOne classic version on the PS Store.

It's hard to say nowadays, since MS is publishing these games on the X1, so it's just dependent on if they have the rights, and if the developers can get a different publisher for ports. These aren't the types of deals that get talked about in the press.

bouzebbal1443d ago

Why even bother with a sequel? The first one was a failure and PS4 or not I will notbuyit.
Sad for Xbox to already lose what they've been calling the best line up of games

He's pretty much saying "Anything's possible"
And DR4 to release...Capcom needs to survive.
Sunset Overdrive 2? MS and Insomniac have a publishing deal so don't expect that to hit anytime soon.

DarkBlood1444d ago

But insomnic owns the ip so it can go either way

salmon_slapped1444d ago

Crytek also needs to survive or sell the ip for Ryse 2 to release. At the moment it doesn't look like we're getting games from them anytime soon unless things changed over there.

OpieWinston1444d ago (Edited 1444d ago )

No doubt...Insomniac could publish it anywhere.
BUT they did burn bridges with EA, and unless they want to get a publisher like Deep Silver to publish it Multiplat. While allowing them to retain ownership.
I think they'll just stick with X1 exclusive...For now, unless sales are terrible.

I don't think sales will be bad.

Dude Crytek is dying. They've got some sort of Mystery partner and they still think F2P is a viable market to sustain 700 employees.

funkybudda1444d ago

Oh believe me, not that I care for Sunset Overdrive 2 on PS4, but I am sure Sony will have plenty more games to keep me happy and busy playing...

christocolus1444d ago


Yeah capcom and crytek definitly need to get back on the green before releasing more titles. Its obvious crytek sold homefront to raise cash and then they are going F2p now also capcom is announcing resievil remakes now..both companies are trying to raise as much cash as they can before investing into new ips.

The original dead rising never came to playstation&it will be same with dr3 but i guess dr4(whenevr its released) will be on multiple systems same with a sequel to ryse(unless a deal goes down btw MS&crytek). Imo MS needs to handpick some devs at crytek to form an internal dev team within xbox studios.the guy who worked on the graphics of ryse is already at MS..they just need to add other talents and get them to work on a new h&s ip.

Sunset overdrive on the other hand is an entirely different story..Ted price went on neogaf and told sony fans to stop asking for SO cos it would never come to their system.he also did same on twitter but He said they would work with sony on other projects though but SO was fully xbx exclusive.

MS has learnt a valuable lesson regarding Ryse though cos here on out Phil states they will fund and own all their ips. 01/microsofts-phil-spencer-want s-to-fund-games-to-build-owned- ip-portfolio-denies-existence-o f-osaka-studio/

Phils comment was made in february which coincidentally happens to be the same month which the rumored deal btw MS&crytek regarding ryse2 collapsed. As a result of this MS will definitly start focusing more on expanding and growing their 1st party studios and also creating bigger&better AAA games..they will also keep working closely with their 2nd party devs i.e playground,remedy,certainaffin ity etc

Godmars2901444d ago

"And DR4 to release...Capcom needs to survive."

If that were true they would have released DR3, a franchise made multi with DR2, as a multi. Instead they made it exclusive again.

Meaning that Capcom know crap about what they're doing.

Did Knack sell better than Ryse? Serious question

So basically Ryse lost way more thank Knack because of money spent to make Ryse that they failed to make back


Daniel_Potter1444d ago

First ask yourself how big was the budget for Ryse and for Knack

LordMaim1444d ago

Depending on how much you trust VGChartz, Knack did sell better than Ryse, though neither game sold particularly well.

die_fiend1444d ago

Who on this planet wants Ryse 2?
Who on this planet wants another game by Crytek?
I prefer games that are fun to play personally.

If they're not happy with Xbone sales, maybe they shouldn't have been so stupid in forming this allegiance with a console that was dubbed a car crash months before it was even out. MS can keep Crytek games, I don't think PS gamers want this crap

Psygnosis3331444d ago

Ryse maybe is not very good game..but i sure there will be some gamers hwo will enjoy this title..if not for the gameplay maybe for the story lol

Godmars2901444d ago (Edited 1444d ago )

Its utterly pointless to say that enjoyed the game, when the issue is that it didn't sell well and as many people didn't enjoy the game.

You are in the minority of those who think Crytek spent their time and resources well. Just like many who think Knack should have been left to cook a bit more. Not just spat out as a launch title.

Psygnosis3331443d ago

It would sell better if it was relised on both platforms including pc..maybe with Ryse 2 they will impruve some gameplay mechanics
Resident Evil Remake on game cube was brilliant but didnt sell well cuz of small install bass on that platform..i think ryse have potential if they focus next time more on gameplay mechanics not only on graphics

GordonKnight1443d ago

I was able to purchase Knack for $20 and I'm still waiting to find Ryse for $20. Same going for Tomb Raider on PS4.

I've got to big of a back log to pay full price for those games.

Concertoine1443d ago

Also Knack was bundled with every launch console in Japan so its difficult to gauge how well it sold.

As far as im concerned they can keep Ryse as long as Crytek is making it.

I still feel like Knack was rushed to launch purely to have a children's game to increase their appeal. I just didn't feel much love in that game's production whenever i played it. I dont have a ps4 but me and a friend blasted through the game on laubch day and we had to play killzone to wash the taste out.

RioKing1443d ago

@gordon Try gamefly, I'm glad I did. I can go through many games for a pretty cheap price.

Techinally...and this is a possibility, Sunset Overdrive COULD, and I said could come to the PS4 in the far future.

Microsoft doesn't own the rights, that's why Insomniac developed for them "exclusively". Unlike the games developed for Sony which had no chance of appearing on other consoles, Sunset Overdrive has a chance.

They won't talk about it now before the Xbox One release, why would they but I still think we might see it on the PS4 at a much later date.

Manic20141444d ago

If that would happen it would probably be the sequel as MS did publish and fund the project. If in a scenario Sunset overdrive will tank than you could expect it going multiplat but if it is a success on XB1, which i think it will be, MS would probably try hard to keep it it exclusive similar to what they did with the Gears franchise. As for now the first game, in a hopeful franchise, doubt would appear on any other console.

Godmars2901444d ago

Using the Bioshock example everything here could just be held back from a year on the PS4 because MS got limited exclusivity. That maybe, just maybe, MS has a second type of contract where instead of similar consideration for releases, they get greater. Since that seemed to happen regularly with the 360 and PS3.

Nevermind what that say about the Xbox brand general failure to sell anything not COD or Halo related. That even Forza can't seem to perform as well as GT as something MS both heavily promotes and produces.

XStation1443d ago


Man, shut up. You just don't want it only on the Xbox One just admit it already. You're a genuine Xbox hater; get a better hobby.

Ausbo1443d ago

Its more than likely that the Microsoft deal includes full exclusivity for the first game. But they have the freedom to do what they want for the future. Of course I'm speculating. Who knows. Maybe it will come to PC later?

rainslacker1443d ago

None of us know the details of who funded what, or who is doing what with SO. Even if MS funded it, it's possible for another publisher to licence the game to be put onto another system, or the developer to buy the rights to publish it elsewhere. If they want it to become a well established franchise, it would be prudent to do so.

There are many examples of this happening last gen, so it's not out of the realm of possibility. The only advice I could give is that if people want to play it ASAP, then get an X1, otherwise, lay and hope for timed exclusivity, or for the sequel.

equal_youth1444d ago

i think it can be seen that not many games can survive just through xbox :/

TheFallenAngel1443d ago

All those games you mentioned are mediocre franchises. It's like saying xbox fans are waiting for games like knack. Dead rising 1 was the only good game out of the franchise. Titanfall lol. Sunset overdrive doesn't look that good, and with recent insomniac games I don't expect much. Rude is mediocre too, I don't think even PC gamers want that.

XxExacutionerxX1443d ago

Ryse came across as a next gen tech demo and it would not have sold well on ps4 either. That's why Dead Rising 3 did well because it was a great game.

Chrisgamerguy1443d ago

Ps4 will never get the first games though

gootimes1443d ago

Does it really matter? PS4 gets great games too, plus games that come over to it later...

Major_Glitch1443d ago

@xbox-fan-club No. No-one is begging for xbox games. Why would anyone? The average consumer doesn't want exclusive to xbox games. If they did, MS's software sales wouldn't be so lack luster, and developers wouldn't be jumping ship to Sony. But hey, if my console of choice was struggling as hard as yours is just to keep up, I'd be grasping at straws too.

geddesmond1443d ago

Who on PS4 wants Dead Rising though???

I love dead rising, if it comes over the PS4 it will have better fps and res...

Salooh1443d ago

My little brother will love it , but for me it's just another zombie game. I want something deep in gameplay or story and both would be awesome. What i want are Quantum break and Gears ( if it's like the first gears). I just want them on pc. Don't expect a ps4 versions from them at all ( would be nice though ^^ ) .

Better game than killzone imo. So I would want it.

Patrick_pk441443d ago (Edited 1443d ago )

In order for Microsoft to keep their exclusives and upcoming sequels, they'll have to own the IP, however, Capcom, Respawn, Insomniac, and upcoming developers no longer want to sell their own IPs. Meaning, Sunset Overdrive, Dead Rising, Titanfall, and Ryse sequels will release on the PS4 and PC, while the first will remain and exclusive on the Xbone and some on the PC (Dead Rising 3 and Ryse (currently)). Quantum Break might come to the PC, since Alan Wake experienced the same process. This isn't great news for Microsodt, but for me it is. PS4 for exclusives and console multiplat exclusives, PC for exclusives games and certain Microsoft exclusives, and eventually a Wii U.

DarkOcelet1443d ago

Its a shame really , alot of their so called exclusives will be on other platforms in the end except for forza , halo , gears and fable but i really wish they add more exclusives like scalebound and not leave it without support like the 360 in its last 3 years all because of the useless kinect , we would have seen more exclusives , but now that kinect is out if the way , i hope we see some change .

fr0sty1443d ago

This is what happens when you put all of your eggs into the third party basket. Third party exclusives are timed at best, you never get an entire franchise to yourself unless you develop and/or publish it yourself and own the rights to the IP.

there is alot cooking in tne kitchen. we moving forward, you wont catch up eating our leftovers. they might taste good though, so have at it.

lol just look, we got another exclusive, brand new ip coming. how many new ip has xone brought to the gaming world so far. i can think of three by the end of this year. the other guys are doing remasters. i feel bad for you. here take ryse and ill throw you another bone later.

maybe dead rising. thats a fun lil game for ya. whataya think?

Azzanation1443d ago

Highly doubt multi platform will be the case for alot of titles. MS stated clearly there supporting PC game so basicly PC and Xbox is what MS want to focus on. If you can afford a good PC and know how to operate one then wait for the games on PC. If your casual and cant afford a good PC then X1 is the place to be. This is great considering PC will most likely handle the remastered versions while MS can focus on newer games.

well for one, they betted on the wrong horse, and two, the game wasnt that good, although graphically its amazing, its cryengine after all.

Crytek should look back and see why we used to like their games in the first place.

I remember the first crysis being completely open world and its graphics being jaw dropping as well, that game was 8 years ahead of its time, its now we are getting games that look like crysis graphiically. the multiplayer wasnt that game, but it was better than the copy paste that was Crysis 2 and 3, aka COD with crysis gameplay.

but i wish they went back to that style of gaming, and giving us a good story for once.
