Crytek's Ryse Is Still in Development, Release Date Unknown

The first-person brawler might appear for the Xbox 720

Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has once again confirmed that Ryse, the long-awaited Kinect-powered first-person brawler is still in development, although he can't say for sure when the title will actually be released.

Crytek wowed people back in 2011 by revealing a special Kinect-only game called Ryse, showing off a visually impressive first-person brawling experience.

Since then, however, not a lot of actual details have been revealed, which led many to speculate that Ryse was shelved by the independent studio.

Now, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has confirmed to OXM that Ryse is "really shaping up well, but that’s pretty much all I can say at the moment."

When asked if Ryse is going to appear this year, he said that he didn't know, so it's possible that the new title might actually appear on the Xbox 720 next-generation console, which is supposed to come with an upgraded version of the Kinect.

Until E3 2013 this summer, when the Xbox 720 is expected to be revealed, don't expect to hear much more about Ryse.
