Crysis Series Will Go On Past Crysis 3; Will Keep “Melting PCs”

In a recent interview with Dusty Cartridge, Crytek producer Michael Elliot Read expressed that Crysis 3 won’t be the end of the franchise, and that the dev team still intends to “melt PCs.”

Whether or not the future of Crysis lies in the FPS genre is still up in the air, but Read feels that there is still a story to tell in the game’s universe. He 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.”

Read also assured us that, while Crysis’ focus has shifted away from being known as the standard against which PCs are measured, the team “still want[s] to melt PCs.”
