Next Crysis won’t be called Crysis 4, “F2P is our inevitable future,” says Crytek


The Crysis saga will endure beyond Crysis 3′s culminating events, but not under the name Crysis 4, CryTek has revealed. Speaking to Eurogamer, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli discussed the future of the visually voluptuous franchise beyond Crysis 3 and mentioned a future free-to-play version of Crysis.

“I wouldn’t name it Crysis 4 at this stage because it would be misleading,” he said. “We want to finalize Prophet’s story, and Crysis 4 would imply the story just moves on. But we are excited about the DNA of Crysis and of the franchise. There can be literally tons of titles out there within the franchise. Unlike Far Cry, this time around we feel very flexible about Crysis.”

Normally Crytek would already be beginning pre-production on the next Crysis, but Yerli says the next iteration’s “radical” direction could mean more of a lull between it and Crysis 3.

“Because we want to make this something much more radical and new, we’re looking at it as a bit more of a long-term thing,” Yerli explained. “It’s too early to talk about it for these reasons.”

Yerli equipped an equally strong silencer on any details surrounding the free-to-play Crysis project, as its infancy prevented any solid information from emerging.

“We do have a plan for a F2P version of Crysis, but how this looks and when this will be done, whether this is the next one or the next next one, is to be decided,” he said. “I believe F2P is our inevitable future. I believe there are F2P titles out there that can be story-telling and cooperative with your friends and competitive with your friends. It’s all possible. The business model is independent from the way you design games. It’s a very important thing. People always make these things dependent, but it’s actually completely independent.”
