Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has reassured gamers that Ryse 2 has not been cancelled.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Yerli claimed that the developer is waiting for more Xbox One consoles to be sold before starting work on the sequel.
Yerli added that the developer continues to “have a good relationship with Microsoft”. He continued: “We are constantly looking at what we can do together. We are not 100 per cent happy with Xbox One sales right now. So we want to wait till the current gen and next gen catches up.
“For Ryse 2, we aren’t saying it’s cancelled. It’s our IP. It just has to wait for the right timing. And the right timing means higher installed base across next-gen.”
Furthermore, Yerli didn’t rule out a PlayStation 4 version of the title. He said: “We can do whatever we want with it with whoever we want. I know there are a lot of gamers who are contacting me through different channels who want to see Ryse 2. There is a lot of positive feedback. We’re considering it. But at this point there is nothing official I can talk about.”
Ryse: Son of Rome launched on Xbox One alongside the console on November 22nd, 2013.
