Ryse, the first-person Roman combat game announced back in 2010, is now being developed exclusively for Xbox One.
A posting on the company's site doesn't reveal much, other than that it'll have "controller-based gameplay enhanced by Kinect." There's also a countdown clock promising we'll find out more in 19 days at E3.
Ryse was first teased as Codename: Kingdoms at E3 2010 before getting an official reveal a year later. Mutterings started surfacing that the game had been redesigned as a next-gen title in late 2011 based on the LinkedIn resume of a Crytek designer.
Earlier this month, we heard reports that the game had been re-worked into a next-generation game "designed to be Microsoft's new Gears of War / Halo mega launch title." Given this announcement, it seems that these may have been accurate.
Last night Microsoft announced that 15 exclusives would be coming to the Xbox One in the first year, of which eight would be new franchises. Taking this news with the announcement of Quantum Break, it seems we now know two of the new IPs.
