Crytek has teased a fourth entry in its Crysis first-person shooter series and posted a short trailer on Twitter.
The teaser, which ends with a capital “4” and features loads of nanosuit-themed tech, was released moments after a Crytek China account shared the Crysis 4 announcement. The tweet has since been deleted , to read, “The ‘Crysis 4’ project is confirmed and opens a new nano battlefield!”, according to one translation Eurogamer.
Although Crytek’s own teaser doesn’t specifically mention Crysis 4, a new post on the company’s website confirms the project and states that the development is still in an “early stage”. The final entry in the series, Crysis 3, was released over a decade ago with EA as publisher. Since then, Crytek hasn’t released many other titles, but last year helped remaster all three original Crysis games for PC and current-gen consoles.
It’s time to join the journey and be the hero.

The remasters show how much Crysis has evolved throughout its story, from the semi-open levels of the first game and its lush island setting to the more curated and narrow corridors of its sequel, set in New York. One thing that has remained constant is the series’ reputation for weighing down hardware, making it a showpiece on powerful PCs.
This week has been filled with game announcements for projects that seem pretty far away, with Blizzard announcing a new survival game set in a new universe and Titanfall developer Respawn revealing work in progress on three new Star Wars games.
