As you can imagine, the responses were full of praise for the game, with many noting that they would love to see a remake or a sequel (or both), while sharing their favorite memories:
life_is_xbox“It had everything to be a massive franchise exclusive to Xbox. Too bad we never got a sequel!”
charlie_hust77: “Just a really beautiful, epic and fun game. My favorite from the last generation. I would love a sequel and it would be a buy from day one.”
faith twelve: “This is one of the most underrated games of the last generation. Incredible story combined with great gameplay and world.”
There have always been calls for Ryse: Son of Rome to get a sequel, and the original plan seemed like it would become a franchise rather than a standalone game. However, we’ve never seen concrete evidence that Ryse 2 is in development, despite a rumor that surfaced a few years ago that it could Being in work.
It seems unlikely at this point that Ryse: Son of Rome will ever return to Xbox, but at least we can play the original through backwards compatibility on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. How about a 60FPS upgrade and an increase in resolution, Critek? ? This is what we would really like to see in 2023.
