Crysis 3 is, as we all know, the end of the Crysis trilogy. But like every almost every other franchise these days which was meant to be a trilogy but ended up being much more (Halo, Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed to name a few), it may have more in store after Crysis 3 comes out next month.
And what’s more, the next installment- if there is a next installment- may not even be a first person shooter.
“You know, I think at this point I don’t want to give anything away,” Crytek producer Michael Elliot Read told Dusty Cartridge. “But I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it. Whether it’s in a different game type format, whether it’s expanding upon this, it’s hard to say. That’s going to be up to the designers at the end of the day.”
“But I think we’ve built… Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we’ve built a really cool universe,” he continued. “We haven’t really gone in and said ‘Hey let’s put Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP.’ We’ve done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, we have a lot more life left in that to go back and try some unique stuff.
“Whether it’s FPS or not I have no idea, but there’s definitely a future in the franchise.”
What next, an Uncharted card game?
