ryse 2

One of the most beloved games of 2013 could have a baby brother, really soon. We know a lot of you really liked this game and were kind of hoping that it could have a sequel in the not-so-distant future.

Well, it seems like this is already happening behind the curtains, but nothing is for certain at this time. However, knowing Xbox and how they drop subtle hints, fans are pretty sure it’s going to happen.

Do you remember how Xbox announced Forza Horizon 5 and the new Xbox Wireless Headset via their Power Your Dreams video last year?

Exactly, neither do a lot of people, because these spoilers are so minute and subtle, that it takes the trained eye of a die-hard fan to recognize these easter eggs.

It’s exactly what happened this year and everybody is already speculating about the spoilers included in the short video.

Is Crytek working on Ryse 2?

It’s hard to tell at the moment, but as we said all hints point towards a future release of a sequel for the beloved action title.

It all started last October with a Twitter post that made fans aware that this might be in the works. From there, everyone started digging for more clues, but nothing else was found.

That is, until yesterday, when Xbox posted a brand new video on their Youtube account, called Xbox 2042 – Imagine the future of gaming.

In this video, at the 00:47 minute mark, fans spotted what appears to be a greek or roman soldier, which immediately lead everyone to believe that this is really happening.

As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, knowing Xbox and how they try to hide big news such as that in plain sight, they would have might as well just announce that Crytek was working on it.

However, this doesn’t mean that Ryse 2 will be an Xbox exclusive. Au contraire, if this is actually going to happen, then the title will most likely be a multiplatform one.

But, since we can’t be 100% certain, we just have to wait and see if this Ryse sequel will be announced at the Game Awards in December.

And, seeing how the first game turned out, we’re pretty sure they are going to do a great job on the second, making fans only want the third one even more.
