With Crysis 3 almost upon us, naturally Crytek are starting to think about the future — and surprisingly, they’re considering other genres beyond the FPS when it comes to the next Crysis title.
“I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it,” said Crytek’s Michael Elliot Read to Dusty Cartridge.
“Whether it’s in a different game type format or 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 Nanosuits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP.’ 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.”
We recently spoke to Michael about Crysis 3 also, where he claimed that Crytek weren’t going to let consoles hold them back any longer.
