    They being Crytek? They continue to iterate on Cryengine and Showdown uses it, but Crysis the game IP is owned by EA and not part of Crytek. I'd be surprised if a new game based on the Crysis IP was built by an EA studio on anything but Frostbite.
    Originally, yes. It's on Lumberyard now which is Amazon's fork of Cryengine (so technically kinda still Cryengine)

    Anyways, so this thread tells me a new Crysis would be an EA project not a Crytek project.

    Couldn't EA get Crytek to develop it? Last I heard Crytek was on the verge on bankruptcy perennially. Weren't they pushing Cryengine as a VR thing hard too? Probably a wrong bet there as well. Would Crytek even be in any position to develop a new Crysis?

    I'm always down for more shooters/FPS. Especially something kind of old school.

    I remember back in the day Sony had multiple 1st FPS franchises, Socom, MAG, Resistance, Killzone, (all dead now I suppose, and now their trade is 3rd person character drama Uncharted/TLOU ) and MS just had Halo. I was hoping for a Rare FPS to come along as was rumored one year. Never happened though.

    Ehh, I am pretty much loving Jedi: Fallen Order, which is EA. To be fair you could make the case that's because of Respawn, not EA. In fact Vince Zampella has supposedly gained much power and autonomy in EA, and Respawn was even given favored status to make Jedi:FO in UE instead of frostbite.

    People temper your expectation tho, it could very well be a low budget VR game.

    Crytek owns the trademark to Crysis, but is that different from "IP" :?: I had the impression EA's involvement was simply publishing rights.


    Edit:

    Also embedded in the crysis website:

    Code:
    <meta name="keywords" content="Crysis, FPS, Crytek, Video game, April Fool, launch">[/quote]
    

    hm.

    I will gladly accept Crysis: "Blood Dragon" equivalent. :|

    A remaster pack is the most low budget thing they can do so its most likely. Not sure why anyone would ask for more. It would be like trusting activision with making a new crash or spyro

    And all the games still hold up pretty well visually and mechanically. Why remake a game like that

    From 2:18 onwards is basically a Next Gen Crysis. I'd be very happy to see a reboot of the original game with these graphics. I wasn't too impressed with either Crysis 2 or 3 gameplay wise and I thought the graphics of both were a step down from the original.

    We'll just get the games as-is ported to the latest iteration of the engine. *cough*

    I'm not against more shooters, I'm against more Crysis games :wink:. I would like to see another Bioshock for example.

    Sony had to bet on a lot of FPS because they weren't able to find their Halo, and in my opinion, they only came close with KZ2 and Resistance 2. Now that they have a deal with Activision they forgot about them. The same happened with MS, they had Halo, plus exclusive COD marketing rights.

    Last gen MS lost Bungie and COD rights, so I understand they need to find a new triple AAA franchise they can associate exclusive with Xbox, but I don't think Crysis would be the answer but who knows, I though GoW was over after Ascension and they manage to revive that franchise in very unexpected way.

    Edit: BTW, I don't hate Crysis. Crysis 1 was a fine shooter, and I thought Crysis 2 was very good as well (and hans zimmer did the OST). But Crysis 3 was garbage and the story wasn't really going anywhere.

    A remake where the suit powers run on credits bought through loot-boxes!

    Fine by me. I'll support anything that can give the original Crysis a proper multi-threaded CPU support.

    Crysis is kind of a relic of a bygone era. A single player FPS (I'd say linear but, obviously not entirely). They had multiplayer though right? Not sure if part 1 did.

    So not sure MS would be staking any bets on it, if this even has anything to do with MS.

    Today popular games tend to be very organic, massively multiplayer, microtransaction oriented, etc.

    I'd love it, but that's because I'm old! Then again Doom was rebooted to some success I suppose.

    Crysis had multiplayer and it was lots of fun.

    The first Far Cry had a fun MP too, the graphics for its time for a multiplayer game where amazing. I remember one being able to spot another at great distances by seeing their rifle scope glaring in the sun.

    it's been a while ever since I saw you
    what about Crysis Warhead? Most people talk very well about it.

    I got it on GoG a few years ago but never played it for whatever reason. I enjoyed Crysis and Crysis 2, with their flaws and everything, but it's not a series I loved, maybe 'cos I started playing it on a X360 -my PC was bad at the time- and the experience wasn't the same. Still, enjoyable enough to purchase Crysis 2, which had interesting moments.

    Crysis 1 supposedly coming to ps4 xb1 pc and switch??? With cryengines own raytracing solution baked in for current gen??

    How will switch run this game especially with a bespoke raytracing solution?!

    I wonder if we will also get crysis 2 and 3...id love to see how they run on my base ps4

    Somehow thinking that DF/Alex covering a new itiration of Crysis isn't strange ;)

    I thought raytracing would be impossible on current gen but its not?? Optimization might go a long way if its possible at decent fps.. Bodes really well for next gen

    I didnt think it would be hard to run crysis on modern machines once it was properly paralellized for multiple cores, but its still weird to think switch is running the game. And we are throwing in raytracing too?
