Crytek: "We Definitely Want To Make Crysis 3"
Okay, so Crysis 2 is less than a month away. But the developers are already starting to think about the next installment...provided March's release turns out well for everyone.
When asked about the possibility of a trilogy for the popular shooter, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli sort of confirmed a third Crysis. It isn't exactly surprising, but it's interesting to hear that the team already has the story all mapped out:
"We definitely want to make Crysis 3. I'm not making a formal announcement. We'd like to make Crysis 3 but the second game needs to be successful first. I will mention that there is a plan for how the fiction of Crysis should roll out, but again, it depends on the success of Crysis 2."
However, he also said that if Crysis 2 doesn't hit the team's goals and doesn't manage to break even, the series may stop. Of course, we're all quite familiar with Crytek's building of hype over the past few months, but it's probably just beause they really want to make a third Crysis.
If you're looking for Crytek to produce TimeSplitters 4, you might be out of luck. Yerli did say his team wants to expand beyond the FPS genre.
"We have a bigger ability now to expand with more games. As a company we can't just make shooters, we need to breed genuinely new forms of entertainment and interactive experiences... The genre may not even exist yet for that matter, so what we're keen on is games that offer new experiences for every moment the gamer plays."
