Crysis Warhead Announced

Following word that Crytek has trademarked Crysis Warhead (story) and launched a teaser website (story), comes the official announcement of the Crysis Warhead game, a PC-only first-person shooter set in "the parallel story to Crysis." The game is being developed in Crytek's Budapest studio using the CryENGINE 2 for release this fall. When Crytek announced that they were likely not going to further patch Crysis (story) they said "we hope you understand when you hear more about the reasons why in the very, very near future," but it's not clear if this announcement is somehow related to that near future revelation they promised. Word is:

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Maximum freedom, maximum explosions and maximum Psycho! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS - News) and award-winning independent studio Crytek today announced Crysis Warhead® – the parallel story to Crysis, one of the most critically-acclaimed first person shooters and PC games of 2007. Shipping exclusively for the PC this fall, Crysis Warhead is the first title to be developed at Crytek’s Budapest studio, and is built on a new, enhanced and optimized version of Crytek’s CryENGINE® 2 technology.

“We were very pleased with the reception of Crysis from both gamers and media after our launch last year,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. “That being said, one of the key principles of our studio is to always raise the bar. With Warhead, we are focusing on refining our storytelling and game performance, while also delivering more of the visually stunning graphics and immersive, free-roaming gameplay everyone loved in Crysis.”

“The best result of a partnership that we can ask for in the EA Partners program is when a world class independent studio like Crytek chooses to continue to work with us,” said David DeMartini, Vice President and Global General Manager, EA Partners. “Crysis was an amazing game and is going to be a blockbuster franchise. We could not be more excited to be working with Crytek to launch another hit with Crysis Warhead this year.”

In Crysis Warhead, players will don the Nanosuit of Sergeant Sykes, also known as ‘Psycho’, one of the most memorable characters from Crysis. More brash and aggressive than his Delta Force squadmate Nomad, players will experience Psycho’s parallel story during the events of the original game, finding that life on the other side of the island is even more intense and explosive than they ever could have imagined. Luckily, Psycho’s Nanosuit is just as capable and he’s equipped with an even bigger arsenal of fully customizable weapons and new vehicles, giving players access to the tools they need to dominate any situation. Aside from this new, exciting single player campaign, Crysis Warhead will also feature new multiplayer content. Stay tuned for more details this summer.

Crysis Warhead has not yet been rated by the ESRB or PEGI. For more information about the game, please visit

As long as this does not feature aliens, I'll be happy. But I'm afraid it will.

Why can't developers understand by now that most gamers do not like games with a mix of humans and aliens/monsters? That kind of thing is always bashed. I remember a dev of Far Cry 2 saying that gamers didn't like the alien part so they decided to keep that out of Far Cry 2 and make it humans only. At least they get it.
