Crysis 4 is going to happen in some form or other, whether it's a solid numbered sequel or a spin-off. Developer Crytek has made no secret that it wants to continue the universe after Crysis 3 ships this quarter, but studio producer Michael Elliot Read has discussed possible routes for the game in a new interview.
Speaking with Dusty Cartridge, Read said, "You know, I think at this point I don't want to give anything away. But I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it. Whether it's in a different game type format, whether it's expanding upon this, it's hard to say. That's going to be up to the designers at the end of the day.
"But I think we've built... Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we've built a really cool universe. We haven't really gone in and said 'Hey let's put Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP.'
"We've done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, we have a lot more life left in that to go back and try some unique stuff. Whether it's FPS or not I have no idea, but there's definitely a future in the franchise."
Back in December Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli waxed lyrical about his own plans for what comes next in the Crysis universe, and expressed an eagerness to explore the game's world in a new light.
