Crytek considering other genres for other Crysis games

DSOGaming writes: "Now this is really interesting. We always considered all Crysis games as some of the best – visually – FPS titles. And although Crysis 3 promises to ‘melt PCs’, it seems that Crytek wants to expand the Crysis universe (or to put it more realistically, to milk this franchise as much as possible), meaning that we could see other games, from different genres, based on that universe." (Crytek, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Crysis Kinect......you know it's coming ha ha ha!

I don't see how they think Crysis still has life in it when Crysis 2 FAILED miserably and the original fan base only sees Crysis as a cash grab and no longer the innovative FPS that was Crysis 1!

Crytek needs to do something else besides FPS cause they have completely fallen from the greatness that was FarCry and Crysis!

Far Cry 3 under Ubisoft has sewn up the open world stealth action genre for me, they need to branch off away from Crysis completely and try something new.

Crysis was a great looking game, and still is now, but Crytek are graphics and no gameplay.

If they are at least talking about other genres, AKA gameplay changes, then it's a very welcome change from their inane statements every 3 hours to random media outlets blowing their own horn about graphics.

I'd happily take a graphics hit in the next gen if they decided to focus on gameplay, writing, pacing and AI.

I don't see how Crysis 1 and 2 were all that different aside from the setting. It was more linear as a result, but I didn't mind. I didn't enjoy the first Crysis just for the bigger environments.

I definitely don't see why there is so much hate for it, as if it was some abysmal failure. Hell, I loved Crysis 2 and I'd take it over most of the bland military shooters out there. Even the multiplayer was great. It had some great maps, and the suit abilities added an extra layer of strategy.
Crytek are awsome devs..

What are you on about completely fallen? They made one shit game - do you have any idea how industry works? Companies would crash and burn if they changed direction every time a product didn't go their way. Crytek have made three games, far cry, crysis and crysis 2 and it amazes me they themselves are so astoundingly short sighted as to feature a shifting tone between crysis and crysis 2 - now everyone wants them to keep that process up eh?

Crysis was brilliant and far cry 3 is far from perfect. It makes no sense to tell a company that has poured massive amounts of time and money into one franchise to ditch that franchise because their last product only broke even (it didn't even fail, it literally just broke even).

Generally speaking crytek's problem is their corporate culture. As a company they're terrible with terrible marketing (Crysis once ran an ad that was little more than a prayer anticipating its release, an odd reminder of Romero's bitch ad) and no sense of WHO they are making games for. Making an RTS won't fix that - their problem was they didn't understand what people liked about crysis. They thought it was all BANG BANG because BANG BANG BOOM EXPLODEY games sell well so they tried to mimic that but unsurprisingly it didn't work. They should have opened it up into an open world game and worked out who was buying their product and why instead of blindly guessing and cramming money and time into a new product only to watch it fail trial and error style.

To make it worse they then design an engine that while looking pretty is harder for developers to work with than hitting a G-spot with a sling shot, and it costs 1 freaking million bucks to lease!!!! No wonder no one uses it. It's just a bad business decision to emphasize power over convenience. UE3 pounded cryengine into the ground because it's convenient, pretty and is really easy to make multi-platform. It took crytek all their brains and some black magic (otherwise known as REMOVING features from the engine) to get the damn thing on consoles and for what? A pitiful CoD rip off?

Crytek need to go sit the fuck down, hire a marketing department and stop engineers and programmers from making business decisions. They need to understand what so many other companies have failed to understand - no one is eating Call of Duty's pie except Call of fucking Duty itself. No amount of exploding skyscrapers and class based multiplayer will let you sneak onto its table and eat some of those crumbs. Nothing. No zombie or horde mode or terrible QTE's will let you eat that cake. It's all for CoD so just bugger off and make something original and enjoyable for those of us whose parents weren't brother and sister.

Crysis Kart


New IP would be better. I don't think Crysis would really fit anything else aside perhaps third person shooter. Beyond that it'd probably just feel forced / lazy.

Genres that could work in my opinion; RTS with base building or Survival horror / RPG with a non military protagonist.

Crysis Fight for Fortune card game, anytime you collect a treasure in the crysis game it tells you you collected or powered up a card for the card game, Yes they should assume anyone interested in the crysis game will be interested in the card game and won't find that annoying

Will they actually make a fun game this time?

Must have EA-itis.

If they're gonna milk it anyways, I'd love to see a cinematic 3rd person espionage/action/shooter masterpiece, with dynamically interactive, on-the-fly physics based set pieces, with fluid game mechanics in the vain of assassins creed (but less nimble due to the suit weight) made from the crysis ip.

As you can see I've dreamt something along these lines once before :)

It would awesome if Crytek made that Project Jelena into a game not sure if it actually was a game or just a tech demo but it looked incredible. If you don't know what I'm talking about watch this http://www.youtube.com/watc...
