Crytek officially arms Crysis Warhead

Far Cry developer confirms title of new project set in acclaimed FPS universe...and little else.


Crysis Warhead

Crytek has been toying with the idea of naming one of its upcoming products Crysis Warhead for some time, a fact first revealed in an application to trademark filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in March. However, as could have been the case with other trademark applications filed by Crytek--including ones for Crysis Wars and World in Crysis--Crysis Warhead very well may have been the Germany-based developer's attempt to squat on a name for some potential and undetermined future use.

As it would turn out, that will not be the case. Crytek has updated its official Web site with a promo for Crysis Warhead. In addition to the game's name, the teaser page depicts a scowling man brandishing a pistol and outfitted in the franchise's distinguishing nanosuit.

Although it remains to be seen what shape Crysis Warhead will take, console ports and sequels for the series have been rumored before. The much-speculated console port of Crytek's critically lauded first-person shooter from 2007 gained momentum during this year's Game Developers Conference, when the developer said it had optimized its CryEngine 2 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. On the other hand, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has also expressed intent to stretch the current Crysis storyline into a trilogy.
