It’s been a long wait for fans of the iconic Crysis series, with over two years passing since Crytek’s initial announcement of a new Crysis game in development. Despite a noticeable lack of updates, the project is still very much alive, according to a recent chat with David Fifield, General Manager of Crytek, who shared a brief update during a conversation with MP1st about Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown.
While the discussion primarily revolved around Hunt: Showdown, the interviewer couldn’t resist asking about the much-anticipated Crysis 4. The last official word on the game came over a year ago, leaving fans curious about its progress.
David Fifield reassured enthusiasts, stating,
Crysis 4 is currently still in development, and we have a great team working on it! We will update once we have more details on it down the line.”
Though the update is brief, it’s undoubtedly good news for Crysis fans eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series.
As for when we can expect to see Crysis 4 hit our screens, that remains a mystery. The development announcement occurred just two years ago, which, in the gaming industry, is a relatively short time frame, especially for a title of Crysis’s magnitude. Considering the rapid technological advancements since Crysis 3’s release over a decade ago, there’s excitement about how Crytek will push the boundaries of visuals in the upcoming installment.
While not wanting to add pressure to the studio, it’s hard to ignore the anticipation surrounding Crysis 4. The original Crysis, released in 2007, is still praised for its realistic graphics, even after all these years. Despite some aging aspects, it stands as a testament to the technological prowess of its time.
Predicting a more substantial update sometime next year, speculation abounds, with a glimmer of hope for a surprise reveal during The Game Awards this year.
