Crysis 4 is on its way, with developer Crytek putting out a teaser trailer following a leak on Chinese social media. The game is still early in development and “will be a while yet”.
Announced under the simple headline of ‘A Crytek Announcement’, the teaser shows a number of images, from an unstable sun to a collapsing building, before ending with a large number 4 and the tagline “Join the journey. become the hero.”
No official title, release date, platforms, or game details have been announced at time of writing.
Update: Crytek CEO Avni Yerli has confirmed that the fourth Crysis game is “in the early stages of development so it will be a while yet.” Yerli added: “We wanted to bring you the news at this time as we are so hyped for the future, and to let you know that we will be listening to our community.”
As you might expect from this series, Yerli says the team is aiming to release “a truly next-gen shooter,” and will release more details “when we can.”
A leak from earlier today broke the news a little earlier than planned. As reported by Eurogamer, Crytek’s BiliBili account posted a message that translates to “The ‘Crysis 4’ project is confirmed, opening a new nano battlefield!”
Crysis is a first-person shooter series that’s as synonymous with high-tech visuals as it is beloved gameplay. Pitting players against alien invasions, deadly ciruses and mercenary forces, the games offered first-person combat with added nanosuit powers.
It’s been 9 years since Crysis 3, but we’ve recently seen the entire trilogy remastered, leading many to speculate that a sequel could be on the way.
