Crysis is a game that a lot of PC gamers hold close to their hearts. For years they’ve been asking for a new Crysis game and while this won’t happen anytime soon, we can now get a glimpse at what a next-gen Crysis game could look like.
Doubt we would ever see another Crysis since they are having financial issues again.
Since Crytek lost its partnerships with EA and MS, the company has been on rocky legs. Crytek's AAA output is low, they are notorious for bloating budgets of their games, and to make thing worse Cryengine doesn't appear to have great adoption rates. I think EA games owns Crysis, I doubt the company has much interest in the IP anymore.
@Sciurus_vulgaris You mean the other way around. Every since they partnered with MS and EA the have been in finical burden. Before they partnered with them, they was on top of their game. Engine selling well far cry and crysis doing well. So after the partner ship was over. They tried to do something new and co publish Homefront Revolution with Deepsilver, which totally bombed and put them in more trouble they was already in. They need to go back to their roots and what made them, focus on making great engines. And showcase the engine with a incredible game like they did with Crysis and Farcry.
Indeed. However imagine the possibilities, especially now that we have the appropriate hardware for such a thing.
Funnily enough, it would mean the only way it would happen is if a console platform holder paid for it to happen.
And that's a goddamn shame. I hope they somehow pull through the financial troubles.
and they will go bankrupt if they continue their tries to impress AAA developers because most of them now have their own capable engine I'm not arguing which engine is better but AAA devs do not need to pay money for 3rd party engine
so does that mean the Colilition isn't a AAA dev team cuz they are using Unreal?
Umm... Yes they have their own engines, but still Cryengine3 games (Crysis 2 and 3) looks much better than any game out there right now
@Goldby They are and they made AAA game with it and there are other AAA titles like SFV, Tekken 7, Kindom Hearts 2.8, III but compare it with the adoption of Unreal Engine 2 and 3 @TheOptimist I said it already I'm not arguing which engine is better but most AAA devs developed their own engines and won't pay money for 3rd party engine most of the time
I still l can't get win10 to play crysis, worked fine on 7.
Underrated series,i went into crysis 3 thinking it would be nothing but good graphics and bad everything else, like allthe haters led me to believe, but i loved crysis 3.
Only thing i didn't like about 3 was the length, felt like it was an hour or two shorter than the previous games.
Crysis is not underrated. It's a case of pretty graphics with average gameplay. That is why it lost it's momentum. It was popular during Crysis 1 but when 2 came, it really hurt the franchise.
Tell me one fps franchise which is better mechanically? Better as in gameplay. I sincerely don't care about story.
Far Cry 3 really impressed me a lot last generation. I am no way saying Crysis are bad games, it's just okay.... It was a victim of being outshine by COD.
COD was shit. I mean I played MW, never got into the single player, not enough to do, other than linear corridor shooting. The MP had me for about 230 hours then got bored because of the stupid perk and loadout system, and I'm already at 800 hours in CSGO. BF was more of the same. FarCry 3 was decent, but gameplay wise it was the same, with some good skill upgrades. In Crysis- environmental destruction, the suit enhancements, the alien story(Not great, but decent), in C3 the predator bow etc etc, Crysis 3 is much more than pretty graphics. It is the second best fps out there, just behind Deus Ex franchise
First image looks worse than far Cry 3 but the 2ND one looks dope.
That's cuz the first image is crysis 1. Did you not read lol
It all went downhill after they started supporting consoles and chased the call of Duty and halo audience. It's not supporting consoles itself that caused them grief, but it was at that moment they stopped trying to make the best game they could and tried to make some cinematic experience that they just aren't very good at.
Not bashing consoles here, but it's unfortunately true. Crysis 2 dropped so much of what made Crysis 1 and Warhead an amazing fps. They dropped the open sandbox environments, and more importantly they downgraded and dropped so much of the simulation that made the first game feel alive and allowed you to play in so many different ways. As an fps shooter, Crysis 2 was just... inferior in many ways. At the same time, Crysis 2 did present many improvements over the original, and I'd be lying if I said the gameplay wasn't still great. Still more complex and fun than 80% of other shooters. The new control scheme and suit powers, while not as fun as the original, was definitely more accessible and 'unified'.
Well piracy played an important role in them not being ambitious and trying to get some money to support their company financially. I would imagine that we would have had a photorealistic game by now from Crytek on PC, if they had good sales for the game.
There will be no new Crysis games. A remaster is possible though.
Fingers crossed for more crysis. Hopefully, it will not be with EA and under a better developer...
Let it go...crytek has been embarassed enough times already they are but history.
im waiting for number 4. i hope it does come out.
The only thing crisis 1 2 and 3 had was beautiful graphics. The games themselves where nothing special. Dont shoot me.
well, speak for yourself :P Crysis 1 and Warhead were amazing to play for me. The gameplay was the best part about it - amazing graphics certainly helped. Crysis 2, while not as good as the previous ones, was still an overall fantastic experience, and definitely more fun than the vast majority of shooters I'd played. Haven't played Crysis 3 yet though.
Play Crysis 3. That will show you
Meh. Don't really care tbh. Crysis has never been that great of a game; it just looked pretty.
Disagree. Some of the best fps gameplay in shooters was in Crysis 1 and Crysis Warhead.
Then why are you in this thread?
Because this thread is more about showing off the future of CryEngine than Crysis. I wanted to see the pictures and how other games using the engine could potentially look as well.
The new VR game it's amazing! buy it!!
We want Crysis 4!
Reboot the Far Cry series and let them do it. Problem solved...
Please Crytek, go under a better developer. All Crysis games were awesome, need to move away from shooters.
I love to play their games on PC!!
