The lights are on
Crytek showed off its upcoming game Ryse back at E3, which is a Kinect game set in the Roman Empire. There could be more to the game than just motion controls, if a recent LinkedIn update has any merit.
According to Ashley Morgan's LinkedIn resume (a portion of which is shown in the image below), Ryse is in development for "X-Box Next Gen." Whether that's a semantic slip up, marketing-speak for vanilla Kinect, or something else is pretty much anybody's guess at this point. As IGN indicated in their initial report, it's pretty flimsy evidence for anything. Still, it's interesting to think about. Current-gen hardware is getting long in the tooth, and it would be completely insane if development for the Xbox 360's successor wasn't happening on some level.

A new First Party game for Microsoft is always a good thing. I'm glad to see this regardless of when it comes out
I think the idea behind this game kind of begs for next gen.
E3 is when they are going to be showing off the new console I would bet.
heh, well.. there goes my hopes for a good kinect game.
If any company has a shot to make a kickass game for the launch of the next gen, it's definitely Crytek. CryEngine 3 is ready to push the boundaries for sure.
As far as "kinect-technology" goes, I'll wait to hear the praise after it releases.
Here's to hoping that this will join a host of other triple-a titles for the kinect and next gen Xbox. That's the last thing we need, two pieces of incredible software with no good games to play.
Sounds like a screw-up on his part. Hope not, but I think he meant current gen.
I want to see this next gen hardware
Honestly I think it for the best if MS moves Ryse from the Xbox 360 to their next-gen home console. They should do the same for that Star Wars game too - give it some extra spit and polish.
