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.
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.
