Crysis 3 – Too soon?

Instant Mix of Hostile Gamer ponders whether or not Crysis 3 should be released as earlier as is being planned. (Crysis 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Crysis 2 was too soon but id rather them press on with an upgrade rather than leave me with crysis 2 as the most recent memory. I wouldn't have minded a big gap with crysis because mods and spec requirements made the game age very well. Crysis 2 however was corked - time for the waiter to bring a new bottle.

The author seems like a whiny b*tch, seriously. Crying about being able to use a bow and arrow, where you don't get penalized stealth energy when you use it for tactical purposes sounds kickass. It puts a new emphasis on stealth, makes the game more like Rambo with the stealth/guns blazing options and approaches.

I looked at part 3 in action at E3 and it looked better than C2, this will depend on if you're a console or PC gamer, and what you're running on.

Also, it took Crytek 5 years to come out with Crysis 2 because of the new engine they were creating for it. The engine needed to make coding easier on all platforms, so it's understandable that it would take longer for C2 to come out. C3 being under the same engine should not take as long if you know anything about development.

I like it cause you can play stealth or guns blazing.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Crytek can do next gen but I'm glad they're releasing Crysis 3 this gen. That way they can take their time getting to grips with next gen hardware so that the inevitable Crysis 4 will be a big jump for the series.

Looking forward to more freedom this time around though, my main gripe with Crysis 2 was the relatively poor AI and smaller locations, compared to Crysis 1 at least.

Probably wouldn't be coming out as soon as it is, but since new hardware is coming, these developers need to get their games out before the new hardware hype pushes current gen games under the rug.

not to soon, to predictable... thats our generation... selling the names and not the games... just like movies, cars, and so on... sad, because no1 has any bright ideas.

I think this one looks a lot better than 2 so its not too soon. Looking forward to it.

Nah Crysis 2 was a stepping stone to Crysis 3 to match the greatness of Crysis 1 , but you will still get purist idiots proclaiming the prequel of any game franchise iteration to be better just because their fragile little minds can't accept change.

Maximum Excitement :)

They could release their games within a year and improve on the previous one while adding a chapter to the story. They are continuing the aftermath of Crysis 2 so why wait years for that?

They could also develop a game for so long that by the time it's release it's so different from the last one and it's made for the new generation of gamer. The story and gameplay will be different from the last time we've been in an alien-infested New York. Not to mention the cultural and political effects on the story that comes with the long development time.

Half Life 2 was totally different from Half Life and Half Life 3 was...wait...

I'm split on this one YES because i want the next Crysis game to be as good as possible and present a large leap forward. And No because i want my hands on the next instalment as soon as possible as i loved Crysis 1 and Crysis 2 was disappointing.

For me Crysis 3 is what Crysis 2 should of been and i will imagine it as such.

Most people who like the lookof this game are getting far to carried away with the shiny factor.

Looks to cinematic for me, just looks like a game trying so hard to be a micheal bay film with no substance if it is going the cinematic route.

If i want a cinematic game il playheavy rain or max payne 3, not crysis 3.

Suffers from the same problem as BF3 SP, lack of actions and ways you can interact with enemies and the environment.
