Crysis 4 Could Explore Different Genres, May Not Be An FPS

Posted on January 4, 2013 AT 05:46am

The Crysis franchise definitely has a future, but that future may not be in the first-person shooter genre, according to Crytek producer Michael Elliot Read.

“You know, I think at this point I don’t want to give anything away,” Read told Dusty Cartridge in a recent interview. “But I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it. Whether it’s in a different game type format, whether it’s expanding upon this, it’s hard to say. That’s going to be up to the designers at the end of the day.”

Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we’ve built a really cool universe. We haven’t really gone in and said ‘Hey let’s put Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP,” he added. “We’ve done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, we have a lot more life left in that to go back and try some unique stuff. Whether it’s FPS or not I have no idea, but there’s definitely a future in the franchise.”

Crysis 3 is due to release February 19 in the U.S. and February 22 in Europe for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
