Senior Producer at Crytek, Brian Chambers comments on the lack of PS4 version of Ryse.
Is there really a need for a explanation? Isn't this obvious?
Is there any need to comment then?
I still think it's possible, with Deep Silver taking over publishing duties on the PC, it's possible they might see financial success by releasing it on the PS4 too at some point in 2015.
@thekhurg I think they would skip the first Ryse and just push the sequel on all platforms. Ryse wasnt really a monster in the sales dept, so I think a late release wouldnt do it any favors on another platform.
With all the layoffs i'd expect them to quit this MS milking and just commit to multiplatform format.
Haha The Truth of "Ryse" is that its an OK game. Even if it were a PS4 exclusive. It was nothing more than a pretty game with decent OK story. I enjoyed it but it was mainly a game that pushed graphics. That's about it.
They probably haven't discussed coming to ps4 because so many ps4 owners have been talking so much shit about ryse since it came out. I think that's why they directly said that about fans asking for it on pc but mentioned nothing about fans asking for it on ps4. It is unfair to say that the xbox sales numbers are disappointing. People don't buy alot of 1 year old games anymore. Especially one that didn't have very good reviews
Ryse is a rental. Which is how I played it and what it was worth as far as value. It was a simplistic hack and slash game reminiscent of the PS1 / Saturn era when it came to game mechanics, decent story, excellent graphics (w/ performance issues) but very linear and some weird camera angles at times. Once you played it an hour you played the game. That's just how simplistic the mechanics are in Ryse. The only thing that really changed throughout the game was the landscape. But it sure was purdy. I blew through it in a day. Tried it online for an hour. Thought I would play it again so I held on to it for a week. Than I sent it back to gamefly wondering why I didn't sooner. When it comes to Steam I am going to wait as long as it takes and pick it up for 5 dollars (rental fee) just to see the differences. I have a pretty powerful PC so I should easily be able to run it on ultra settings. If it comes to the PS4 I doubt I would even rent it. Unless of course it was a sequel and they put much more effort and complexity into the mechanics.
LOL! They are likely not talking about a PS4 version based on they likely using the profits from the PC port to do a PS4 version. ie if the PC port does well, they have money for a PS4 port. If it does bad, they don't have funds to port it. Example. If they say (PC and PS4 coming soon) and the PC version does crap and they can't afford to continue the PS4 version....it will look really, really bad. I think they are just trying to get funds to make a PS4 port happen, but can't 100% say for sure as sales will determine that.
The bottom line is that what seemed like a great deal going exclusive with the Xbox 720 turned out to lose Crytek all those potential PS4 customers and profits - it's the same mistake that EA made with Titanfall. It wasn't a great game anyway but PS4 owners who fill they've missed out there is one silver lining. Crytek's Brian Chambers says "Currently there is no announcement regarding RYSE coming to PS4." Which quite frankly leaves the door open to release when the exclusivity window runs out.
cuz they're broke.
I think if they want to maximise profit they should look at putting it on PS4 too- especially if it wasn't a sales monster at launch on Xone. I really enjoyed the game actually, despite its limitations. I like hack n slash games in historic settings, and it was pretty atmospheric.
No where does it say why it's not coming to the PS4 (Not that I'd get it anyway).
'cause PC players asked for it' was all i saw
My question would be... why? With all the killer titles available to PC gamers why would they want this? Doesn't make much sense.
More games are always better than fewer games. Many people on Xbox One really liked Ryse, so it stands to reason that there will be people on PC that really like it too. I played a bit at a friend's house recently and it seemed a lot better than some of the negative voices on the internet would lead you to believe. My friend likes it a lot too. In fact, a lot of the people I talk to in real life who have played it seem to think it is at least decent. Some thought it was great.
A.k.a MS likely got console exclusivity rights since they published it.
Nobody would by it anyway....
I'm buying it for Pc, damn right. Just as soon as it hits the Steam Sale :)
same here. Crytek has gone down the toilet since Crysis 1
Of course they won't "by" it, they will buy it.
Probably won't do that, either.
I like it when the ladies bi it.
title is misleading
The interviewer explicitly asks why it's not coming on the PS4, despite the console leading this generation. Crytek then explains that the community wanted the game on the PC and they are working on a PS4 game which is not Ryse. I am not sure how this is misleading.
In his words "The PS4 has gained a large user base in a short time and CRYTEK will develop titles for it the near future, such as HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age. Currently there is no announcement regarding RYSE coming to PS4"
@98xpresent "Currently there is no announcement regarding RYSE coming to PS4" Does Not Equal: "We have plans to bring it to PS4"
Just a little misleading...... I was actually expecting a big explanation as to why no PS4 version. But whatever no big deal and i didnt feel like i wasted my time.
Very doubtful it would come to PS4. Crytek need all the money they can get right now and if they aren't releasing it on PS4 along with the PC then it probably means that the contract they have with Microsoft only allowed for a PC version, not a rival console version. Microsoft published the XB1 version.
If there haven't announced anything, how can you assume that they DO have plans to bring it to the PS4? Your argument isn't logical. Rashid is correct.
Game is just a horrific abomination anyway. XB1 really needs Halo:MCC to drop as soon as possible. Still 2 months away, yikes.
I get the feeling you never played it.
I have. It had good graphics (despite some questionable breast physics) but the gameplay was lackluster. Maybe the sequel will be better.
@Lord Maim and SgtSlaughter212 You are entitled to your opinion, but hopefully you realize there are a lot of people that don't agree with you. http://www.amazon.com/Ryse-... http://www.metacritic.com/g... There's no problem with people having their own opinions. The only problem is when people act like only their opinion is valid or they speak as if everyone agrees with them. I also don't know why people go out of their way to be so overly negative. Why don't people spend more time focusing on games they do like, instead of being super hateful about a game they personally didn't like but many other people did like? What does that accomplish? "Horrific abomination"?...haha don't you think you are being just a little hyperbolic there?
There is D4, Forza, sunset overdrive, Ori to fill that void
You prob didn't even play it. You are nothing more than a troll. The game looked and played awesomely! Great story, voice acting. So maybe you should STFU.!
Pretty much, if there is a Ryse 2, it'll be PC/Xbox One which is fine by me. I'll just be getting it on PC.
What I gather is PC gamers expressed an interest in Ryze, and Ps4 gamers did not
I don't know why anyone would express interest in this game.
Or interest in an article about a game they have no interest in.
I wonder how many people bashing Ryse here have actually played it... I haven't, but I'm not about to bandwagon and say it's awful. Either way, it doesn't look like my cup of tea, so I would skip this, regardless of platform.
I've played it. It's nothing special.
Well you know what they say about opinions. Very few fanboys have the cognative capacity to form one of their own.
I've played it. The graphic looks great. but the game play is boring as hell. Its one of those games that you only want play once. Its not a game where you want to replay to get achievements. Similar to Beyond two souls. I could only play that game once that is why i tried to get as many trophies as i can before completing the game.
Ryse looks fun to me, but I'm not buying an Xbox One to play it.
Yeah, from the small amount I played it was pretty fun and it looked incredible. The story seemed fairly interesting too. I'll be getting it on Steam for sure.
And they wonder why they're in trouble...
I'd love to see a Ryse on ps4 with extra levels extra gameplay mechanics and Ayane as an extra playable character
I'm not surprised that there's no plans for PS4. Since Microsoft published the game when it originally released, they own the publishing rights on console.
It cracks me up the PS4 fanboys saying they wouldnt buy it.The only way I wouldnt buy it if it wasnt worth a crap. This platform love is just too stupid!
It would be 1080p on PS4 and even on XB1 now with the new sdks and reserve freed up. It was rushed and any new iteration now would be optimal.
PS4 doesn't need Ryse. On the other hand, the developer needs the sales but on another hand, Ryse would never sell well in PS4 as all people knows the game is garbage.
i can't see a ps4 release myself maybe like the titanfall thing where the sequel comes out on ps4 but the original stays exclusive but who knows. Its out on PC thats all that matters XD i kid i kid i had it on xbox one not really my thing but i can see why some people would love it
Ryse sold great for a launch title hitting the 1 million mark on the XOne.No doubt it wouldnt have sold that much on the ps4 and it will flop on pc.Im guessing it will sell maybe 100,000 copys and thats being nice.Is crytek wanting to lose money it seems that way wasting time and money on the pc version of the game.
Why shouldn't it come to PS4, I mean there was a huge petition from PS4 owners for this game to come to their system. http://www.change.org/p/cry...
I guess you where being sarcastic there, 20,000 sigs on that petition which is meant to include PC and then PS4 as an afterthought is no where near a "huge petition"
ps4 doesnt need it, got too many other games to look forward too
its not like the ps4 is losing any sells casue of this game not coming to it
Too bad it's not coming to PS4. There aren't many good games set in this time period aside from this one. It's basically Gladiator the video game. I just picked it up on Xbone and I'm enjoying it. This would look amazing on PS4 too, shame really.
Exactly. I enjoyed it for the period and the atmosphere, and action. It would do fine on PS4 as a more 'casual friendly' game next to the likes of Bloodborne (also very atmospheric but much harder).
no plans... yet.
Crytek who is going belly up trolling one last time for glory. You won't be missed ... plenty more games coming down the pipe. Ryse and Crysis will not be missed on PS4
So after all the fanboyism saying Ryse is a bad game, now most of the in here are hoping for a release date for PS4? Same with Titanfall and Dead Rising 3 and Plant v Zombies. Then I hear Halo is a bad franchise to lets all buy Destiny because the developers created Halo... honestly this gen has to be the worse hypocritical generation of all time with the most double standards.
Amen brother, you nailed it.
I agree. I picked up a PS4 first because of the hype and was ultimately disappointed with Infamous Second Son. I Picked up an Xbone last week with Dead Rising 3 and TitanFall and was blown away by those two games alone. The amount of zombies on the screen in Dead Rising 3 compared with the sick graphics makes for a very fun and enjoyable gaming experience. TitanFall is just a blast to play, the movement and tight gunplay mixed with the Titans makes for a very fun FPS MP game. Ryse is extremely fun and violent as well and much less tedious and repetitive than most reviews would have you believe. I actually enjoy it ten times more than I did with God of War Ascension. Just because those games I mentioned aren't in native 1080p the PS4 community shuns them, which is sad as they are FUN GAMES. Graphics and resolution don't make a FUN GAME. That said, I can't wait to play The Order and BloodBorne, those two games will bring me back to my PS4.
711 million gamers on PC, to 10 million on ps4 makes sense to me why they would bring it to PC http://www.pcgamer.com/uk/2...
yet the average mutliplat game sells less than 250k on pc. ironic.
PC owners or gamers? "Gamers" on PC could be playing anything from Minesweeper to Starcraft. Most of them are casuals at best.
You make me smile, with both of your great opinions... I bow down to your awesomeness. Multi -Plats suck balls thanks to them being console ports from inferior systems, and most of them casuals ... PC ownes some of the biggest selling games of all time, some of the biggest gaming audience for games which include Blizzard games and MOBA games... you both need to really learn to bring on the facts before you play with the best.
on the other news Crytek doesn't give a F*ck about sony fans I was hoping for it to come to ps4 I love them kinda games from total war to this game I don't care if its shite or not and im not buying and xbox for this game
