Crytek intends to do 'radical and new' things with the Crysis series beyond Crysis 3.
A fourth game is on the cards, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli told Eurogamer, and the developer feels the closure of the trilogy with Crysis 3 allows them great 'flexibility' for the next title.
"We are excited about the DNA of Crysis and of the franchise. There can be literally tonnes of titles out there within the franchise. Unlike Far Cry, this time around we feel very flexible about Crysis," said Yerli, who revealed that a fourth game is planned, but is not yet even in pre-production.
"I wouldn't name it Crysis 4 at this stage because it would be misleading," he added. "We want to finalise Prophet's story and Crysis 4 would imply the story just moves on.
"Normally in this time right now we would already have pre-production going on, but because we want to make this something much more radical and new we are looking at it as a bit more of a long term thing. It's too early to talk about it for these reasons," Yerli went on.
