Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has revealed that a fourth game in the Crysis series is in the planning stages and the developer is hoping to do ‘radical and new’ things with it.
“We are excited about the DNA of Crysis and of the franchise. There can be literally tonnes of titles out there within the franchise. Unlike Far Cry, this time around we feel very flexible about Crysis,” he told Eurogamer. “I wouldn’t name it Crysis 4 at this stage because it would be misleading. We want to finalize Prophet’s story and Crysis 4 would imply the story just moves on.”
“Normally in this time right now we would already have pre-production going on, but because we want to make this something much more radical and new we are looking at it as a bit more of a long term thing. It’s too early to talk about it for these reasons,” Yerli added.
So it appears that Crytek are hoping to shake the system up with the next Crysis game, but quite how they plan to do that is unknown. One thing’s for certain, it’s going to be a while before we see anything regarding this mysterious fourth game.
