Today, developer Crytek confirmed the long-rumored Crysis 4. Crysis is a first-person shooter (FPS) franchise that pits you and your nanosuit against a terrifying alien force. Crysis 3 ended the story rather conclusively so it'll be interesting to see where the journey leads us in Crysis 4.
Crytek didn't provide any further details about the game, but we know that it's being developed. Recently, the team released remastered versions of Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3 on various platforms, but they're plagued with visual and performance issues, especially when it comes to Xbox Series X. Hopefully, Crytek will address these problems with patches now that it's 2022 and gamers have provided a considerable amount of feedback.
Crytek China posted a confirmation of Crysis 4 this morning, though it's unclear if the regional office meant to do that. Soon afterward, Crytek officially released a trailer and confirmed the existence of the game. This may have been a leak that led to the project's announcement.
Crytek head Avni Yerli said the following on the franchise's website a few hours later, confirming that it's in the early stages of development.
A new Crysis game is happening ... We are so pleased and excited to bring this news to you, and we really can't wait to reveal more details about what lies ahead. Right now the game is in the early stages of development so it will be a while yet ... As development progresses we will release more details when we can.
Hopefully, Crysis 4 will be a polished experience whenever it releases. The FPS genre has evolved quite a bit over the past decade — it's been almost that long since the last Crysis game hit the market — and expectations have changed. Halo Infinite adopted an open-world approach to revitalize the franchise. Maybe Crysis 4 will too.
