Rumor Crytek leaks: Crysis BR, Crysis VR, Hunt Mobile, Ryse Next & Robinson 2

Crysis Next is described as:
"A free to play battle-royale game where 100s of players collide in fast paced combat. Visual customization, adaptive nanosuit powers, and visually spectacular combat in an immersive world creates the ultimate live streaming experience. The Crysis franchise has all the features to make a battle royale stand out. The gameplay. The style and setting. High production value."

In September, Crytek renewed the Crysis Wars trademark. And in early 2019, they teamed up with SpacialOS for a AAA game using their large scale server technology.


There was an alleged leaker two months ago who said, regarding Crytek and singleplayer titles:
No, production cost vs sales is not adding up. most sp these days are platform sellers (paid to sell hardware boxes) see ryse etc. some exceptions. Also EA back then build up Batllefield instead of Crysis as a modern shooter with campaign.
Now you simply cant make SP because the studio lacks writters, animators, mockap experts etc,

This doesn't rule out Crytek making SP games, especially since their VR team makes stuff like The Climb 2 which is SP. But it does mean they're inclined towards MP titles in the FPS space. Probably the only way Ryse 2 would happen would be if someone external was funding it, I think. And we have known about a cancelled Ryse sequel from back in the day which fell apart due to licensing disagreements with MS. It's just unclear if Ryse Next is that cancelled sequel or something else.

Also, regarding VR.
"There was a crysis wars VR prototype we build when we got the first headsets from occulus. We got violently sick."
It's possible that this is what the Crysis VR project in the leaks is referring to.

Enjoyed Ryse at the time. Great graphics and decent gameplay... wouldn't mind a sequel.

Ryse IP belongs to Crytek or Microsoft?

I'm not interested in BR, but at least Crysis BR actually make sense unlike Vampire the Masquerade BR.

A new Ryse game could be interesting. Especially if they add full on story mode coop.

A more Souls-like Ryse instead of the QTE fest it ended up as would be great, they had everything else down pat.

No more Battle royales!!!!



Why not? How many of them are there really? Fortnite, Warzone, Apex Legends, those are the top dogs. Is PUBG still a thing? Haven't heard anything about that title in quite a time. But other that that, is there anything else to chose from? The titles that started the entire genre are long time dead, many new entrances die within weeks as well, it's the kind of genre where you either have tens of millions of people on the servers or none, the competition is fierce, so the more choice and variety the better.

Chasing the quick trendy buck I see, rather than a long-term investment that leans towards quality. Let's see how that works out.


It won't.
