A possible successor to the graphic hammer Ryse: Son of Rome has been speculated for a long time. An insider re-fueled the rumor mill and claims the game is currently in the works at the Crytek developer.
Crytek’s Ryse could get a successor
What is the rumor saying? In a new one Xbox Era Podcast says the well-known leaker »Shpeshal Ed«, who heard of a Ryse 2 last July. His source at the time got in touch with him recently and confirmed that the sequel to the action game was actually in the works.
Who is “Shpeshal Ed”? The leaker is mainly on the Xbox and PlayStation and was recently right with his insider information about a new subscription service from Sony. Because shortly after the leak, Sony confirmed the PS Plus Video Pass.
In addition, »Shpeshal Ed« also leaked an excerpt from the first trailer for the hotly anticipated action role-playing game Elden Ring.
According to “Shpeshal Ed,” the person even showed him pictures that he found extremely believable. “Shpeshal Ed” explained in the podcast:
“I had good reason to believe this person was believable because they showed me certain things that made me believe they were on the right level. What makes me happy is the fact that a new one Ryse is in development.
So this person said to me, “Yep, a new Ryse is in development”. I can’t name any dates and I can’t name quarters in which something should happen, just that a Ryse is in development. And like I said, I’ve got pictures of things that make me believe that person is believable. ”
Ryse: Son of Rome was released for the PC in 2014 and received rather mixed criticism. In our GameStar test, too, some annoying hooks were revealed:

What information is there so far about Ryse 2?
»Shpeshal Ed« meint dazu:
“The interesting thing about Ryse is that it is a multiplatform game and is not exclusive to Xbox. So if this Ryse game comes out, it will appear to be a multiplatform game.”
If these rumors are true, then a potential Ryse 2 would appear not only for the Xbox Series X / S and the PC, but also for the PS5.
Should the game actually appear, then we can expect another impressive graphics hammer. The development studio Crytek has not yet confirmed the development of a Ryse 2, so enjoy all rumors with reasonable caution.
