It’s been 15 years since the acclaimed first Crysis came out, bringing even the most powerful PCs of the time to their knees, and today Crytek has announced the fourth installment in the franchise. In an official blog, Crytek CEO Avni Yerli said that although Crysis 4 is still in the early stages of development, the studio wanted to please fans with the fact that work is in full swing on the next part of the beloved game.
At the moment, there is no word on a release date for the game, Yerli only said that the studio will release more details later when it can. But this year, Crysis 4 is definitely not worth the wait.
Along with the formal announcement, Crytek published a teaser abstract video in an apocalyptic style, at the end of which the developers invite everyone to “join the adventure and become a hero.”
The time has not yet come for a video demonstration of the gameplay, so it is not clear whether the plot of Crysis 4 will somehow be connected to the events of the original trilogy, or the game will develop in a different direction. But what can be said for sure: Crysis 4 will be a real test for the PC, as before, the three previous versions of the game acted as a performance benchmark. If Crysis 4 is released at the end of 2023, then it will set a real test for Nvidia Ada Lovelace video cards (GeForce RTX 40), and it’s not a fact that even the top GeForce RTX 4090 will be able to display all those beautiful graphics that will be implemented in Crysis 4. And there is no doubt that it will be so.
