Crysis 3 surfaces on EA store

[UPDATE] Electronic Arts' proprietary Web store lists Crysis 3 before pulling official product page; art hints at return to urban setting; more details to arrive April 16.

Crysis 3 has blown its cover. Electronic Arts' Origin.com has posted (and partially pulled) product pages for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of Crysis 3.

Crysis 3 is on the way.

The product page for Crysis 3 shows a Nanosuit-wearing soldier wielding what appears to be an advanced bow-and-arrow set. The character stands in front of a city environment, hinting that the third entry will return to the urban setting of Crysis 2, instead of the original game's tropical locale.

[UPDATE] An EA representative told GameSpot to expect more details on Crysis 3 on April 16.

"The best kept secret in shooters just can't be contained," reads a line from the statement. "Stay tuned for more information on April 16."

Last month, Crytek revealed that it would announce a new AAA title in April. Details were thin at the time, with Crytek general manager Nick Button-Brown saying the title will be a "big budget" game for consoles and PCs.

A third entry in the Crysis series comes as little surprise. Following on from 2007's highly regarded original, Crysis 2 scored a solid critical reception upon its release in 2011 and went on to ship more than 3 million units.
