Electronic Arts has released today, the official box art of the upcoming game Crysis 3.
already? a third? really.....
EA wants money. This will become a yearly series
Depends. Crysis 2 did worse than Crysis 1 - if EA want to make this a profitable franchise they must go back to their roots, but they won't because it's EA. Instead, they'll run the IP into the ground.
Already? With CryEngine 2 : Crysis 1 : Holiday 2007 Warhead : Fall 2008 [Development of a new engine] With CryEngine 3 : Crysis 2 : Scheduled for Holiday 2010 but then delayed to Spring 2011. Crysis 3 : Scheduled for Spring 2013 It was obvious that it wouldn't take them 3 years to develop another game using the same engine. This is just like CD Projekt RED, they released The Witcher in 2007, then worked on their RED Engine and The Witcher 2 which they unleashed in 2011. But The Witcher 3 will certainly not have such a long development cycle because they already have the tools they need. You can also expect Crytek to be working on its CryEngine 4 which will probably be ready some time in 2014/2015. Developers can make a very good game within two years, and I'm certain Crytek has been working on C3 before C2's release, so they've had quite a lot of time to release a decent sequel.
Hot damn that box art.
A 3rd one already? ffs EA
The 2nd was amazing and much better than the first which was just Far Cry with a super suit and BAM it became linear as the game went on until all you could do was walk down a corridor to complete the level. I hope the 3rd isn't as linear as the first and the tactical gameplay still pertains it's difficulty.

Thx for that hires pic! Much appreciated.
I'm suggesting anyone who is surprised for a 3rd didn't finish 2? Was clearly going to be more. It aint out till next year either so it's a pretty normal 2 year dev cycle.
Agreed plus it's a franchise EA wouldn't risk on top of the lay offs and loss in money over the last year by creating a new IP when most of their current line up have cost them in the marketing department. Stick to what they know will obviously sell and hopefully recoup their loses
Crysis 3 development started in beginning of 2010 according to mod on Incrysis (he had chat with one of the ex Crytek devs, he took picture too). We had alread 3 Gears games, 3 Uncharteds and 3 ME's and yet people bitch about Crysis 3.
Gamers on this Community make me laugh, everything they bitch about most often times is very silly and trivial! -_-
from the day Crysis came out it was always penned to be a trilogy. that's what Crytek always said. after the Crysis 2 launch they said they already had the Crysis 3 story mapped out. it was always coming. just a matter of when.
Look at how many Assassins Creed 3 games there are yet no one is bitching about the 3rd after we have a sequel and 3 expansion packs :\
I hope if they including a bow & arrow, there is going to much more stealth involved. Apart from Assassins creed series & Deus Ex HR & MGS4, hardly any stealth games at all. This gen
Um how many CODs have we had, Gears, Need for Speeds, Uncharteds on home consoles and Resistances, Halos on the 360, Mass Effects? And you guys are calling it milked when its only seen 2 full games and an expansion pack since the IP was created and released in 2007? N4G I tell you. ( -_-)
Well, the thing is Crysis was supposedly an uber amazing game. They come out with a sequel four years later = lots of hype and expectations. Releasing a 3 the next year or two is weird. Imagine Half-Life 3 in 2013, then Half-Life 4 in 2014. We'd all be like "WTF???"
The only reason why Crysis 2 and 3 are releasing so close is because they are on the same engine! Crysis 2 came 4 years after the first because they were also building the CryEngine 2. when it was complete they shipped the game using the engine as its most current offering. Secondly Crysis 3 is coming out in 2013 not 2012 crysis 2 was actually supposed to release in 2010 but was moved to March 2011. Since the CE3 is already complete Theres no need to do R&D. Its the typical development cycle of games this generation! If it ships next years that would put Crysis 3 at 2 years, not 1.
Cant wait!! I actually Think the Crysis series is the saving grace for amazing single player experiences. and the multiplayer for 2 was pretty fun
I much preferred the image they've been using as part of the press release: http://cdn1.sbnation.com/en... I don't really care for this box art, personally.
hopefully it is ps4/nextbox/pc the game was fun on ps3/360, and looked damn good for a console game, probably the best graphics i have seen on console, but it was a FAR CRY from what it looked like on pc....lol.... seriously though, the game was very good Warhead is my fav so far, then crysis 1, then part two, but i loved them all!
