Rumor: Crytek Building First-Person Melee Game for KinectBy Alex Co | May 9, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
Crytek, makers of the Crysis franchise, teased a new game at last year’s Microsoft E3 press conference.
The game was titled Codename: Kingdoms and that was all we know aside from its live-action trailer that didn’t reveal a shred of detail about the game except that it will involve muscled warriors with blades like the movie 300.
It looks like what the actual game is might have been leaked. A post on Gamasutra details how Crytek will lay-off 30-35 people at its Budapest studio, which is rumored to be transitioning from developing the Xbox 360 exclusive to focus on tablet games.
The report also states that Codename: Kingdom’s development will instead be handled by Crytek’s Frankfurt studio.
Keep in mind this still a rumor until confirmed by Microsoft, but with E3 mere weeks away, don’t be surprised if it’s revealed at Microsoft’s press conference again.
Do you think a first-person-melee game could work with Kinect?
