Last month, God of War: Ascension game director Todd Papy announced on Twitter that he was leaving Sony Santa Monica to go to Germany in order “to experience a different culture and all the wonderful things that Europe has to offer.”
As it turns out, though, Papy isn’t playing tourist at places like Heidelberg Castle and Brandenburg Gate. According to his LinkedIn account, he’s joining Frankfurt-based Crytek as game director “on an unannounced project,” with “more info coming in the future.” Scuttlebutt says this may well be Ryse: Knights of England, the rumored follow-up to Crytek’s Xbox One launch title, Ryse: Son of Rome, and the connection does make sense.
Ryse included several God of War–style elements, and if Microsoft wants it to become a brutal-action franchise on a similar level as Sony’s blockbuster series, who better to bring on than someone intimately familiar with what makes Kratos tick?
