Crytek unveiling ‘spectacular’ new project next month

Crytek has confirmed it will be lifting the veil on a brand new project some time in April.

The news comes following the Crysis developer’s appearance at GDC last week, where it opted to shine the spot free-to-play endeavours as well as its first mobile game.

However, speaking to CVG at the San Francisco-based event, the firm’s GM of games, Nick Button-Brown, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to developing triple-A software, and said we can expect a formal reveal on the “spectacular” new title next month.

"There are so many things I can’t talk about," he said.

"A big part of our business is big budget console and PC games. We are doing all these other things, but they’re on top of that and we’re doing them because they’re interesting.”

"We still want to deliver the highest quality that we can, wherever we go," continued Button-Brown. "You know about Homefront, you know about Ryse. We are working on another project… [laughs] all three of which are looking really good."

Although he wouldn’t divulge any concrete details on the new project, the developer heaped praise on the team’s work and teased it looks “absolutely fantastic.” 

"The other project looks absolutely fantastic – I mean, genuinely the best of that kind of project we’ve ever done.”

"It looks spectacular, the team are doing really, really well and it’s just really nice to see the team really enthusiastic about what they’re doing. They’re really happy.”

"We’re going to carry on doing those games. We like doing mobile games, we like doing free-to-play, but we also like blowing things up in a visually stunning style."

A job listing recently hinted that Crytek is working on a third instalment in its acclaimed sci-fi shooter series Crysis, though whether or not this is indeed the new game in question remains to be seen.

Stay tuned to for more details as we get them.
