Electronic Arts' proprietary Web store lists Crysis 3 before pulling official product page;

art hints at return to urban setting.

Crysis 3 has blown its cover. Electronic Arts' Origin.com has posted (and partially pulled) product pages for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of Crysis 3.

The product page for Crysis 3 shows a Nanosuit-wearing soldier wielding what appears to be an advanced bow and arrow set. The character stands in front of a city environment, hinting that the third entry will return to the urban setting of Crysis 2, instead of the original game's tropical locale.

Neither Crytek nor EA have announced a third entry in the Crysis series, and as of press time, the publisher had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

Last month, Crytek revealed that it would announce a new AAA title in April. Details were thin at the time, with Crytek general manager Nick Button-Brown saying the title will be a "big budget" game for consoles and PCs.

A third entry in the Crysis series comes as little surprise. Following on from 2007's highly regarded original, Crysis 2 scored a solid critical reception upon its release in 2011, and went on to ship over 3 million units.

Crysis 3 accidentally revealed by EA's Origin service


While the nanosuited protagonists of the Crysis series owe much of their success to the suit's ability to render them invisible until the precise moment they're ready to strike, publisher Electronic Arts doesn't share that same ability. The unannounced Crysis 3 was accidentally revealed on its own Origin website this morning.

As spotted by NeoGAF, and verified by a quick Google search for "crysis 3 limited edition download origin," EA's Origin download service featured the game on both Xbox 360 and PC; it's unclear if there will be a PS3 version. Accessing the once-live Origin page for Crysis 3 returns a predictable "PRODUCT NO LONGER AVAILABLE" warning.

A NeoGAF poster also discovered a higher-resolution banner image featuring the same compound bow-packing, nanosuit-wearing protagonist as the temporary Origin boxart, further validating the veracity of this leak. The April issue of Swedish gaming mag Game Reactor also appears to confirm the leak, teasing a game with the series' familiar hexagonal pattern.
We've reached out to EA for comment on the game and when we can expect to learn more. In the interim, keep checking Origin?

Update: EA got back to us and didn't play coy! "The best kept secret in shooters just can't be contained. Stay tuned for more information on April 16," the statement reads. Mark your calendars for next Monday, folks.

Earlier today, EA's own Origin game service revealed what looked to be Crysis 3. EA responded and told gamers to stay tuned on April 16.

Crysis 3 is going to be awsome! I hope they don't water it down with all the console crap like in Crysis 2. I also hope it is availible on Steam when released. What do you guys think? Do you you like the idea of a bow?

"Leak" on purpose to create media interest in the game.

Overplayed marketing tactic.

I don't think they would release it April16th but maybe a trailer or something saying of a release towards November. I haven't finished Crysis 2 yet... prob should get on that! And yes I do agree that the story that Crysis 2 took wasn't one that I was impressed with, I was hoping of a complete timeline follow up from Crysis 1 or Warhead.


Also I'm still on my boycott of EA from how they completely screwed people over with Battlefield3 and forcing Origin up you're butt to play it so not sure I will even continue with the game series.

I just hope it's not ruined with the highly intrusive DRM crap they infested the other Crysis games with.

Hoping they fix some of the issues and improve on the already great MP (console) like integrating the DLC into the main playlists. If so, take my damn money!

The title is a bit misleading as the game itself has not leaked. they simply (most likely for marketing reasons) put it up a bit early to rile up some free marketing. and they will announce the game later this month. Have to admit I like the idea of the Bow :D

I wonder if they'll have multiplayer and if it will include an actual anti-cheat this time instead of letting people who pirated the game to use key gens to play online and ruin the game.

:rofl: I thought the same thing but I decided against saying that.

No. That was Ubisoft. The forthcoming SimCity will require an internet connection at launch, but not while you play.

All my Ubisoft games at least have had 'always on DRM' removed, can't say if they still use it for new titles or not.
