A couple of weeks back, we reported on how Ubisoft had files stolen, but it was not the only one to have information compromised. Crytek also had 300 MB worth of files taken pertaining to projects in development. New details about them have surfaced online via r/GamingLeaksAndRumours.

Aside from the already released Crysis Remastered and its outsourcing, there are a number of possible new projects in the works, such as Crysis Next and Crysis VR. It’s rumored that Crytek had considered a Crysis VR game after testing Oculus headsets. Crysis Next is said to be a battle royale game. This was likely considered after the success of Hunt: Showdown.

We see Hunt development, and a bit further down is Hunt mobile. It’s anyone’s guess what “development” could mean (new content? DLC?), but the latter shows that studios are interested in mobile versions of their games. Then there’s Ryse Next. If this follows the same naming convention as Crysis Next, it could be a battle royale game. And clearly, Robinson II would be a sequel project.
Considering the poor launch of Crysis Remastered, some or all of these projects could’ve been scrapped. Anything is still possible, though, so who knows what the future holds for Crytek.
