Documents leaked from Crytek have indicated that the European developer might be working on a number of new and as-yet-unannounced projects. These include remasters of the original Crysis games (the first of which was announced as releasing earlier this year but was delayed), Crysis VR, a mobile version of Hunt: Showdown, sequels to Ryse: Son of Rome and Robinson: The Journey — and Crysis Next, a free-to-play battle royale.
Twitter user /PPG/ (@pokeprotos) broke the news last week, claiming that files related to both Crytek and Ubisoft were “leaked earlier today [Oct. 28] by a team called Egregor.” /PPG/ then posted an image that looks like it came from some kind of internal document and detailed a new game:
Crysis Next is a free-to-play Battle Royale game where 100s of players collide in fast-paced combat
Visual Customization, adaptive nanosuit powers, and visually spectacular combat in an immersive world creates the ultimate live streaming experience
The Crysis franchise has all the features to make a Battle Royale stand out. The game play. The style and setting. High production value.
It should be noted that this, and the other games mentioned above (apart from Crysis Remastered) have not been officially confirmed by Crytek. They may be in production now, or they may have simply been concepts that were pitched and never got off the ground. Still, if you wanted to see a Crysis battle royale, this is a positive development, as it seems someone at Crytek at least shares that sentiment.
