Crytek USA, The Ex-Darksiders Studio, Is Helping Out On Ryse: Son of Rome


Earlier this year, Crytek took on a core team of staff from Vigil Games, the studio behind Darksiders, after they failed to find a home following the bankruptcy of their parent company THQ.


Following their adoption, the ex-Vigil staff were assembled into a studio named Crytek USA, and now we have some idea of what they’ve been up to.


Crytek USA are helping develop Ryse: Son of Rome, Crytek’s exclusive title for Xbox One, the games’ producer, Mike Read, revealed to Siliconera today. The Crytek USA team consists of about 30 people now.


Read added that Crytek USA are also working on their own “things,” but had nothing to offer on just what these things are.
