Crysis dev reveals top secret new game

Crysis developer Crytek has begun work on a top secret new game, it's revealed.

The mystery title, which is being developed at Crytek's satellite studio in Kiev, is a "new original IP" and will be powered by the dev's proprietary game engine CryENGINE 2, which of course is what Crysis is being built on.

Although the developer is keeping cards extremely close to its chest where the new game is concerned, Crytek MD Faruk Yerli has hinted it'll release on more than PC and may well be the first non-FPS from the developer.

"Now that our CryENGINE 2 middleware has reached the point of maturity where it can be used to support both different types and styles of games, and run on multiple platforms, we thought it was the optimum time to begin work on a new project based on our own new and original intellectual property, and elevate the Kiev operation to full studio status", Yerli explained.
