Update: Crytek has released a teaser trailer that, despite being extremely vague, confirms Crysis 4 is officially in development.
Original story: Crysis 4 is in development at Crytek.
That, at least, is according to Crytek China, which posted an image alluding to a fourth installment of Crytek’s hit FPS franchise on Chinese social media site BiliBili ahead of Lunar New Year. While the image appears to have been removed already, Eurogamer was able to grab a copy of the photo in time, one that alludes to the return of one of the series’ most iconic items, the high-tech Nanosuit.
“Xiao C gave a New Year’s gift to the Year of the Tiger~ Make a comeback, and the tiger is powerful!” a machine-translated version of Crytek China’s post reads before going on to reveal that Crysis 4 is in development.
“The ‘Crysis 4’ project is confirmed, opening a new nano battlefield! Follow @Crytek_Official, we will continue to update you with the latest news. Come to the comment area to talk about your expectations for the ‘lifetime’~.”
Crytek hasn’t released a new Crysis title since 2013’s Crysis 3, but the series has creeped back into the spotlight thanks to their newly remastered counterparts, which feature better performance, improved graphics, and other modern updates. Ray tracing can be enabled in select versions of the game.
