Ryse not shipping for another 12 months, at least

Ah, the mysterious Ryse. Crytek itself has already said that it’s still coming, but as to when, we haven’t had a clue. Until now.

Kind of.

Thanks to comments made by Microsoft man Phil Spencer, we now know when it’s not coming.

“We’re still building Ryse,” the Microsoft Studios executive has told Verge. “We’re focused on games coming in the next twelve months, something I say every year, and it’s not something we’ll be shipping in the next twelve months.”

That would put it in mid/late-summer 2013 at the very earliest. With the next-gen Xbox rumored to be releasing next holiday, perhaps the Kinect-enabled brawler will be a launch title?
