Ryse: Son of Rome 2: Still Possible?

Ryse: Son of Rome didn’t perform that well (sales wise) in the current gen but maybe Crytek will come up with a stronger shield and a sharper sword in the next gen.

Ryse: Son of Rome

Ryse Son of Rome tells the story of Marius Titus, a Centurion in the ancient Roman army, who finally avenges the murder of his family.

Ryse Son of Rome was a day zero title for Xbox One and with the launch of Xbox Series X Console just around the corner, it’s time the developers had revealed their plans for the next generation console launch due holiday 2021. Also read, Forza Horizon 5.

According to Crytek’s boss Cervat Yerli in an interview with Eurogamer in 2014, Ryse 2 wasn’t entirely cancelled. However, the studio was just waiting for the right time to release the sequel to Ryse Son of Rome which will be Ryse: Son of Rome 2. And with the launch of Xbox Series X just a year away, maybe it’s just the right time for Crytek to release yet another Ryse as a day zero title for Microsoft’s most powerful console ever.

The developers were frustrated at how the game sold on Xbox One. While I did enjoy the game to its fullest, many players found the game rather repetitive. Some even claimed that the whole game seemed like a video being played at 30 frames per second to bore the players to death. Cervat had hinted that the studio would wait till the current gen and next gen caught up.

Keeping all these things in mind, the best time for Ryse: Son of Rome 2 to release seems to be right when Xbox Series X comes out.

Why do I like Ryse: Son of Rome?

Ryse: Son of Rome was among the first games I purchased on my Xbox One and no doubt I enjoyed it. I really love the way Marius goes into slow motion while slaying the enemies. It’s true that those actions performed by Marius are repetitive but I never find them boring. Even today, I could play the game all day and not get bored.

‘Ryse Son of Rome’ brand was renewed in February 2018. So it’s reasonable to think that Crytek is working on a new Ryse game. Brand renewal can be taken in two ways. The best way to take is that Crytek is working on a new Ryse game so they just wanted to make sure the rights to the name of the good old game they developed still remains with them. Or the studio is just tying up loose ends and legally making Ryse their property. Fans can still wait for Crytek to make the next move around the launch of next-generation consoles.

Will Ryse: Son of Rome 2 Come to PS5?

It’s not even clear if Ryse 2 will ever be released so at this point, it’s totally useless to guess whether the not-sure-but-maybe-it-will-come-out Ryse 2 will be available on PS5.

  1. I hope the release a sequel. I was one of the few people who actually really liked the game (although it was a bit limited in content), and I feel like a proper sequel could really be a great game.

  2. I am a die-hard fan of the game. I still play it today. I don’t have 100s of hours on it (mainly because I only own it for Xbox, but I digress), but it has a deep story at the centre of it. I have enjoyed playing it on Legendary difficulty, even with the frustrations that was the 2nd mission, and that is because of the story element.

    Think of your favorite story/movie. You more than likely have seen it a million times and never get tired of it. That is exactly how I am with this game. When I get indecisive about what I want to play, I can just put it on and enjoy my time playing it.

    I also have to agree with how repetitive it is, but almost every game is like that. They just slap a new coat of paint on and call it different. 7 years later it still holds up much better than some games of the past year (in my opinion) and that says a lot.

    If people appreciate a game for the story, they’ll notice it isn’t 1-dimensional. I commemorated that to myself as I got the symbol tattooed on to me because of the values that the game showed. Honor, integrity, valor, commitment, and etc.

    I also guess this is where I end my “rant”, but it just urked me that a 2nd game never came out and still might not yet.
