Earlier this month, a ransomware group hacked Ubisoft and Crytek’s private files and later on dumped them on a site. Some people have combed through the files and made some interesting discoveries with Crytek, specifically a mention of Crysis VR and Crysis Next – a Battle Royale game.
Crysis VR and Battle Royale game were or could still be happening
The findings were made by pokeprotos on Twitter.
This is where the gaming subreddit r/gamingleaksandrumours chimed in with more details:
Below is a description of the game taken from the reddit thread.
"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 gameplay. The style and setting. High production value."
Crysis VR is pretty self-explanatory, but whether this would be a small experience in the Crysis world as Nomad, Jester or Prophet can not be confirmed, and some people speculate this could also have been a VR game.
Along the leaks there was mention of what could be a sequel to the Xbox One launch title “Ryse: Son of Rome” and Hunt mobile which could be Hunt: Showdown for mobiles.
Crytek only recently released Crysis Remastered for the current-generation consoles and had met with a fair share of positive reviews, but otherwise the company has not done anything related to the world of Crysis in a very long time.
While the leaked documents aren’t suggestive of anything, these could easily be rejected pitches that the company kept for archiving purposes, or maybe they were working on something here.
Whatever the case may be, the new generations of consoles are right around the corner and with that, there is still hope that EA gives Crysis another shot at life on a new generation of console with even beefier hardware.
