It looks like Crytek’s next game is a sandbox shooter

What’s next for the house of Crysis?

It would seem that Crytek is working on a sandbox first-person shooter.

That’s according to a job ad for the company’s Frankfurt studio – as spotted by WCCFTech – which is hiring for an “unannounced AAA project” at the moment. One of the requirements for a game designer role the company is looking to fill is “Deep passion for gaming, preferably FPS sandbox games.”

Beyond the fact it’s working on a first-person shooter, there’s little else to go on. It’s possible that Crytek is working on a brand new IP, but the studio could also be working on a new entry in the Crysis series.

This comes in the wake of a rather busy 2020 for Crytek, which saw it finally release its Early Access shooter Hunt: Showdown in 1.0 in February following its Early Access launch at the start of 2018. In our review for the game, we described it as “an unforgiving, nasty piece of work, where you will die bleeding in a hedge.”

Meanwhile, the company also released a remastered version of its classic game Crysis, which hit PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in September following a delay from July.
