Crytek May Be Working on More Crysis Projects

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.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
