Crysis 2
Crytek Working on New Project With EA - Is it Crysis 3?
Written By
View author's profile

Looks like Crysis developers Crytek are working on a new game to be published by EA.

The news comes via a job ad posted on EA’s website, recruiting for a video director to capture game footage (among other duties) for the Germany-based “partner studio.”

Odds are then, that Crytek are developing a new Crysis title. The developer has been pretty open about the potential of a sequel, indicating that third entry to the series would be likely if Crysis 2 was a hit.

We’re gonna presume that a month at the top of the UK charts was good enough.

I thought Crysis 1 was a lot better than 2, but it was still fun. Crysis 3 will be fun, I'm sure.

Star Wars of these decades.

I remember Crytek UK saying they'd seriously consider Timesplitters 4 if Crysis 2 did well, which it apparently did.

One can dream.

I hope it's TP4, but if it's Crysis 3, then I'm a bit hesitant to purchase it...

I think after all the crap Crytek/EA put us through with the glitches in C2, my trust in them making sure it doesn't happen again for whatever game this is, is very low indeed!

I'll get the obligatory Timesplitters mention out of the way first, and say that I think it would really cool if we could get Crysis 3 in a better setting than 2. A space station perhaps?

I'm with you guys, I found the MP in Crysis 2 way more fun than CoD. That game was too underrated when it came out. Still don't understand why. Probably because Activision got scared of it and lobbied the video game "journalists", as usual. (See the "GameBlog VS Activision" or "Journalists VS Battlefield 3 potential review survey" stories)
It's superior to any CoD title in every way. To each his own, I guess. /shrug

In a world where Call of Duty : Black Ops can be nominated for a BAFTA, I think I'm gonna stick with what "those" people call mediocre games. (read : excellent ones)

I'm skeptical now of everything Crytek does, given how poorly Crysis 2 was done.

I was excited to play it on console, never having played the first one, and it disappointed me in so many ways.

I didn't mind the MP, was fun when it worked. Just a different, unique play style.

I'm with everyone who is hoping its Timesplitters 4. Been far too long since last game. Had so much fun on the previous installments and will have a right laugh once again on vs games. Not gonna be too fussed if it is Crysis 2, as I never really got into it.

Well, according to a site, Timespliiters 4 isn't coming. "In February 10, 2012, a source confirms that TimeSplitters 4 is not in development as of yet and Crytek UK have not even started making the project"

I hope it isn't Timesplitters, bit overrated in my opinion. I thought THQ published Homefront so I don't know if it can be that either. Crysis 3 is looking the most likely as people do love their trilogies.

In all fairness, the glitches in Crysis 2 were almost exclusively related to achievements. The game itself played very smoothly and was enjoyable. I realize this is an achievement site, and therefore achievements are much more important to people here, but I think there should be an * next to the word "glitch" when it comes to Crysis 2.

Crysis 2 is a fantastic game for people who don't really care about achievements and simply want to enjoy a solid game with few hiccups.

i wish it to be timesplitters 4, but as the others amongst you have said, TS4 is going to be by CryTek UK, so unless they are spreading the workload across europe (which is a bad idea anyway) this will be for something new....

my initial thoughts were crysis 3, but, surely that would be by the main dev house, not a seperate team, though it could also be a spin off (like warhead)

never had any troubles with unlocking achievements on crysis 2, and it was apretty smooth game, way too easy, but, it was decent..... no this isn't right, i'm only ever supposed to complain about games.... hmmm, it was too easy and there weren't enough online players, thats all i can think of...very odd

@ 26, its not only about glitched achievements, the game had so many things that deserved to be fixed. Some lucky people never encoutered a single glitch but some others like °32) couldnt even finish the game, some others couldnt unlock some weapons or perks online even at level 50, how ridiculous is that ?
not to mention that crytek did announce they would work on a way to fix these issues, i spent weeks on their dedicated forums, but they never did a damn thing. It was so easy to fix achievements or at least the glitch leading to missable tokens online, but they didnt care about that once they took ur 60 bucks ...
and come on, i ve never seen so much lag on a game since The darkness 1, just read all the dedicated topics.

I agree with #20. It probably will be Homefront 2. I hope so to, the first game was pretty enjoyable.In the hands of a good studio such as Crytek, the second one should be better.

@1 it's nothing like CoD, it can't be compared. It's more like Halo.

OT: I enjoyed Crysis 2. The trailer sold me on the game (especially the music in the trailer, gave me goosebumps). Didn't enjoy the MP but the campaign was something fun and different for me.

@20 and @38 DEFINITELY NOT Homefront 2. I know it's in development by them, but not with EA. It;s a THQ license.

Hoping for Timesplitters 4. LOVED the second one. Never had a chance to play 3. ):

@37 I'm one who never had issues apparently. Given, I'm only in my 40's online and only missing the all weapons/level 50 achievements (still hoping they pop when I do get around to finishing). Other than that, I've never had an issue with anything....glitches, lag, whatever.

I do agree that it's bullshit the company never stepped up and fixed the ridiculously easy achievement glitches....but I can't rate the game itself down because the company is shit. Besides....missing 1 weapon unlock wouldn't bother too many people (aside from achievements obviously) because most would save the weapon they least wanted for last. I only use a couple different weapons myself, and I assume that's pretty common. Either way, I still say the game itself is great, and the glitches mainly apply to achievements. YMMV I guess....but I never heard complaints about actual gameplay, just achievements.

im with #4.. I thought Crysis 1 was an epic game..

Spoiler Crysis 1 plot...
The Vietnamese invade an island, and take hostages... the nanosuit team(for lack of a better term) go in to rescue the hostages and get intel on the Vietnamese's agenda on the island. Come to find out they unearthed alien tech.. a spaceship. Then the aliens get loose, and take out the vietnamese.. then its all out war on the island... And it isn't exactly Baghdad either... the aliens put up an amazing counter attack and almost win... Only you and your nanosuit make the difference...

It's a pretty epic story and game.. to me Crysis 2 wasn't as good...
Theres a pyscological factor to Crysis 1.. It's the island.. and the ocean.. and your army(which gets all but completely wiped out) and an aircraft carrier.. against all odds... and you barely pull it off... For a little bit theres a sense of hopelessness.. and towards the end, your like, crap we're almost completely wiped out... Losing a war of attrition..

Because Crysis 2 takes place on the mainland, it doesnt feel quite the same... Certainly, on the mainland, you don't feel like you would lose a war of attrition... And regardless if you do or not, it feels like we'd always have backup...

Now granted I havent finished Crysis 2.. maybe i should now while im thinking about it... lol Hmm maybe i should pick up Crysis 1 and RE4 off of live while im thinking about it also.

I hope they give the player the same sense of hopelessness in Crysis 3... where ever it takes place...

Timesplitters 4 would be great. I never even played the others but I would like to get into that series though.

If it's Crysis 3, I probably won't get it until I get Crysis and Crysis 2. I might either get C1 on PC and/or 360 and probably just get C2 on 360 since Valve took it off of Steam cause of EA not letting them release DLC on Steam.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to what Crytek comes up with next.
