Yes indeedy, a sequel to Crysis is in the works, and is going multiplatform, as expected, what with Crytek developing their CryEngine 3 (does someone over there have a lachrymology obsession?) for consoles as well as the PC, which of course will be used with this sequel. Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions of Crysis 2 are confirmed.
“The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. “This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it’s the first title we are developing for consoles and the first title being built on CryENGINE 3. We are excited to have the support of EA Partners again as we work together to make the launch of Crysis 2 a huge event.”
“Nothing speaks more to the success of the EA Partners program than when a studio the caliber of Crytek continues to work with us,” said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA Partners. “Crytek is already one of the elite PC development studios in the world and we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with them in bringing their award-winning technology and gameplay to more platforms and a wider audience with Crysis 2.”
