Having worked on games such as the Crysis trilogy and the original Far Cry, Crytek as a studio has a strong pedigree as far as development of first person shooters in sandbox open world environments are concerned. According to a job listing posted on the developer’s website, it’s likely that they might be looking to do something similar with their next project.
The listing, which calls for applications for a Game Designer role, mentions that the developer is working on an unannounced AAA game. While the listing itself doesn’t divulge too many details about the nature of the project, the requirements for the position explicitly mention experience with having worked on a AAA first person shooter in the past. Additionally, Crytek are also looking for someone with a “deep passion for gaming, preferably FPS sandbox games.”
In late 2020, Crytek released Crysis Remastered, following which there have been many who have wondered whether a revival of the series might be in the works. Crysis 3 came out all the way back in 2013, so it’s certainly been a long time since the series went on a break. Of course, a job listing on its own doesn’t guarantee anything, but the prospect of Crytek making yet another sandbox shooter is an exciting one, to say the least.
