"a Crytek announcement," which seems like it's in its wheelhouse. The tweet
includes a 45-second
that shows off a little destruction that's reformed into an
image of the numeral "4." This includes a tagline: "Join the journey. Become the
hero." It's hard to mistake this for anything but a tease for Crysis 4
But there's no guesswork required, as
this press release
confirms the news. CEO Avni Yerli tells us this "truly
next-gen shooter" is "still in early development." He also reassures Hunt:
players they are not forgotten: "I also want to let Hunt: Showdown
players know that we have some great things planned for you too, this year."
Here are the scant details we have about Crysis 4 so far:
