CryTek has just officially unveiled what looks to be the next official game in the Crysis
franchise, dubbed Crysis: Warhead
There's few details to be had at the moment (actually practically none at all), but the official Crysis site
has been redone with a teaser image for the new game and shows Psycho from the original game looking grumpy as hell.
Why exactly the rather annoying Psycho is being pictured hasn't been confirmed, but the rumour
at the moment is that Psycho will be the new main character for the game, replacing the protagonist of Crysis
n Nomad. Prepare yourselves for lots more laughable British stereotypes and excessive swearing then.
CryTek recently announced that it would not be supporting
the original Crysis
any longer for reasons that would be revealed very soon. That reason now looks to be that the company is now refocusing itself on making Crysis: Warhead
One of the most interesting things about the game though is that it is unclear which platforms the game will launch on. Crysis
famously undersold on initial release for the PC and CryTek has publicly rampaged against pirates who downloaded the game illegally. The high piracy rate for Crysis
was even enough to drive CryTek away from being a PC exclusive developer
, so it seems reasonable now to assume that Crysis: Warhead
will be a multi-platform or console-only release.
Care to speculate on the announcement further, or are you willing to 'fess up as one of the people who torrented the original game? Let us know in the forums
