Crytek will make a "major" Crysis 3 announcement tomorrow, the developer said today through its social channels.

"Stay tuned for a special Crysis 3 announcement tomorrow," Crytek said on Facebook. "In the words of Nomad: 'We're going back.'"

On Twitter, Crytek described the announcement as "major."

Crysis 3 launched in February and sold 205,000 units during the month in the United States, according to NPD data. According to publisher Electronic Arts, the game failed to meet sales expectations.

Who knows, they might even release a ultra texture pack and charge 15 bucks for it too.

Ok let me clarify the confusion... There is no sequel to "Crysis", period!

They simply wrote "Crisis" 2 and 3 wrong...

So the major announcement is a $15 map pack for a game nobody plays. Good job Crytek.

Failed to meet sales expectation, ha ! what did you expect from launching a expansion pack as a full game ?

I bet it's going to follow the  example and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon and we will get some stand-alone expansion!

Gearbox is already doing it with Borderlands 2.

Unless it's going back... in time... because it's time... to split... as there's a new timesplitters on the horizon that has nothing to do with Crysis... then it's wasted news.

Please don't mention Nomad; you killed him off unceremoniously and you bungled the stories of 2 and 3. Heavens know what happened to Alcatraz.

Crysis 3 = fail. [unless the announcement is awesome]

Well unlike its sequels Crysis 1 was one of the best games I've ever played, well until the aliens showed up.....

They have a good chance to make even. Probably a prequel announcement incorporating next gen consoles or something (but could be a major DLC too given that its a Crysis 3 announcement). Lets see !!!

I despised the commercial and it did slightly turn me away from the game. I'll try it eventually

So then I'll wait till tomorrow, what's the point of this news piece? Not expecting too much though.

Well the problem were consoles. I am really sorry for that. Crysis 1 was open world FPS and 2 and 3 are console games that have small areas which u clear new loading will occur and same small area you have scripted game play

You can only go back to being the hardcore franchise Crysis 1 started out to be, but hell if that happens.

They'll admit they actually forgot to include the other half of Crysis 3 on the disc and that's why the game was so absurdly short!

I don't see how any announcement about a game that came and went and is classified a sales failure can be considered "major".

Going back to Steam?


For as long as its an Origin exclusive I'm not buying it.

Lol there's now  way crysis 1 even modded looks as good as crysis 3. Some very select images may seem as good but as a whole crysis 3 is a good step up. However I will agree that crysis 2 didn't look as good sometimes. Only thing that disappointed me about crysis 3 was that they advertised POM but only had it on one freaking tree in the entire game.

DLC featuring Nomad going back to the original island because he dropped his watch. :P

I have played both Crysis and Crysis 2.  Great graphics but just an average shooter, at least in my opinion.  I'll eventually pick up Crysis 3, but only when the price comes way down.

Wait, the 'major' news is that Crysis 3 will have maps taken from the original game's campaign for multiplayer? Wow, that's total shit news. I couldn't care less. And also, that is not major news. I really hope it's something else, but to see that there are achievements hinting at what it is, this is truly unexciting.

Crysis 1 with graphic mod looks better than Crysis 3, that's why it failed :). I loved the first one and bought the second one knowing it's not that good, won't make the mistake with the third one :).

crysis 1 & warhead where the best. Just becaouse crytek was lucky developing those awesome games, they started thinking they could just make crappy games based on the license. Ex. crysis 2 and 3. The punch of luck and success was crysis 1, now, please make us gamers a favor and 1) stop making crappy games, 2) sell your pretty engine to someone who could explode it much efficiently.

@sgt_F79 You're not missing anything. They developed for the consoles and that's when the game mechanics went to shit and the storyline got even worse. Terrible when you have to appease a mass of retards, so you destroy an intelligent IP.

@eze_sl89 Careful... your ignorance (and/or youth) is showing... their success came from Far Cry, not Crysis 1.

@billlabowski @sgt_F79 woa there, while i agree with the resentment that developing to consoles caused damage to crysis franchise lets not get over ourselfs, that game was never a inteligent ip, it was a great tech demo to what pc gaming could do, and sadly no one got on that boat ever since,our current video graphics can do alot more then we have.
