Hopefully it's Ryse 2 with a more involved combat system and exploration/puzzle elements similar to God of War. Or a new IP is always nice.

Yeah, a Ryse sequel makes the most sense to me, since turning it into a series more like God of War would be a very obvious direction if they intend to make more.

Ryse 2 seems like the easy answer. Would likely make it a more interesting proposition to me. Glad he landed somewhere awesome, with a large developer.

Well, hopefully Ryse 2 will be better then. Even if GoW: A was the worst GoW, it was still better than Ryse.

Microsoft and EA are pretty much some of the only major publishers that let you keep the IP.

However, in trade for that, they usually get the right of first refusal to publish a game's first sequel.

So if Crytek wanted to make Ryse 2, if Microsoft wants to publish it, Crytek contractually has to let them do so.

However, given Crytek is huge and likely wants whatever work they can get, if Microsoft wants to publish eight more Ryse titles, Crytek will likely be more than happy to do so.

Sweet, I'm enjoying Ryse more than I expected but its simple.
Knights of England sounds boring though. Way more overplayed scenario than Rome. Stay there.

Well he was design director on GOW III and a senior director on GOW II so it's not like he is useless...

Hopefully him and the people from Vigil get to make a new IP that is good. If it's Ryse 2 I will cry. Surely he would try and rysist working on that series, because why would he leave SSM for that? I'm sure he'd ryther work on GOW. Don't know whether Crytek put the talented people from Vigil on F2P duties, or are making a cool new IP that puts gameplay first. Sort of excited, I'm sure if it was Ryse 2 and it was good they would be rydeemed.

I'd say Chains of Olympus is the worst GoW game, and regardless, Ascension was a load better than Ryse.

Anyway, good luck to Todd. I thought Ascension got a bad rap, but it was still a great game with excellent combat.

No, Crytek owns the IP, but MS probably own the publishing rights for a trilogy of games. Either way, I'd bet there will be more.

I really hope is Darksiders... I would really love a Darksiders with Crytech technical know ho and a core of ex Vigil on it, it could be some great.

I completed Ryse and aside of stunning graphics it was quite forgettable, I don't see any interesting future development for it.

Crytek only hired some of the Darksiders employees, they do not own Darksiders IP. Nordic Games do and they are apparently still trying to see what they can do with it. They will need to assemble a team first. The A Team..

Then i'd put the original GoW, way over Ascension that's slightly better than GoW III to me.

Didn't they move away from this, since, like (checks Crysis Warhead on Wikipedia) the end of 2008?!
