The third installment in the Crysis trilogy will not at all mean the end of the franchise. Michael Elliot, producer at Crytek has hinted on possible new Crysis titles which will expand into other game types.
During an interview with Dusty Cartridge, Elliot said:
You know, I think at this point I don’t want to give anything away. But I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it. Whether it’s in a different game type format, 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 Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP.’ We’ve done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, 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.
From the talks Crysis 4 is planning to expand its horizons. It will probably feature a more tactical and strategical approach than before. Who knows, maybe we might even end up with a third-person perspective; that will be great for us to marvel at the suits.
