Seven years after the release of the last game, the iconic Crysis series may finally return. A new mysterious tweet posted by the official Crysis Twitter account points to some sort of revival for Crytek’s first person shooter series.

First launched in 2007, the Crysis games turned a lot of heads primarily due to their appealing visuals, among many other things. Crysis 3, the latest installment in the series, saw a release in 2013. Since then, fans have been eagerly anticipating news regarding a sequel or even a remaster. After years of waiting, Crytek officially broke silence today in the form of a vague tweet.
The Twitter account in question hasn’t posted anything for over three years, so the new tweet is definitely surprising, to say the least. As for its contents, there’s actually no concrete information to be found. It is obviously a teaser of some kind and Crytek is seemingly building up towards a major reveal. However, since it has been so long since any news regarding the Crysis series was shared, we’re not sure what the reveal will be about.
Over the past few years, Crysis fans have fell victim to cruel pranks multiple times. Earlier this month, Crytek hinted at a remaster of the first game by updating the official website with a picture of the first protagonist. Unfortunately, the resulting excitement was short-lived as it was quickly confirmed to be an April Fools joke.
Today’s tweet is certainly not the announcement fans had hoped for, but at least it’s not an obvious troll.
There’s a lot of evidence that suggests Crysis 4 or even a remaster of the first game could be in the works, but without an official announcement from EA or Crytek themselves, we can’t really say for certain. Whatever the case is, we can be sure that a new Crysis game built on modern technology will be, at the very least, a successor to the iconic benchmarking tool that is Crysis 3.
