Crytek teases “absolutely fantastic” mystery project

Crytek is working on a yet-to-be-revealed project which the company's general manager of games, Nick Button-Brown, says “looks absolutely fantastic - I mean, genuinely the best of that kind of project we've ever done.” While the new project's not yet ready for public appraisal, Button-Brown promised CVG that this will change next month.

“A big part of our business is big budget console and PC games,” Button-Brown told the magazine. “We still want to deliver the highest quality that we can, wherever we go,” he explained, assuring players that the company's forays into mobile and F2P don't preclude it working on traditional AAA fare.

“We're going to carry on doing [traditional AAA] games,” promises Button-Brown. “We like doing mobile games, we like doing free-to-play, but we also like blowing things up in a visually stunning style."

Earlier this year, Crytek showed off a new trailer for its Kinect-exclusive Ryse. In late 2011 it was announced that Crytek UK (nee Free Radical Design) would be bringing high-powered graphics and its patented brand of charming irreverence to a Homefront sequel.

    My bet is that it's something equivalent to Crysis: Warhead but for Crysis 2. This time it'll be more of a Mix of the Island location and the city. Maybe set between the games. Porting Crysis 1 to console was part of the development team working to see how to get those environments running on console. Talking about how it looks, this kind of project. The Linshang island never looking better, same with city environments done properly in DX11. Didn't one of the crysis people talk about recently how badly optimized the first game was and how the DX11 stuff wasn't properly implemented in the updates for C2. Maybe that's a hint to what they've got it doing now. Or not and i'm just wishful thinking.

    I cry everytime Crytek announces a new game and it isn't Timesplitters. Crytek, don't break my heart again.

    Please please PLEASE let it be Timesplitters 4. I know they've already talked about Homefront 2, but come on. 7 years.

    Crysis 3 or Homefront 2 seem like the most probable. Then again I could be way off.
