So far, Crytek has been very quiet about its future plans. Following its two productions released last year – Hunt: Showdown on PS4 and Crysis Remastered on all platforms – we suspected that the German studio was working on a new title. And it is through job offers published on its website that we learn today that it will be a very big budget game.
Indeed, the Game Designer job description is at the very least explicit and precise:
We are looking for a passionate and experienced Game Designer to work on an unannounced AAA project at our studio located in Frankfurt.
An interesting piece of information, the ideal candidate should be passionate about video games, more precisely first-person shooter with “emerging” gameplay. Indeed, by navigating on the page, in the section “requirements” necessary to be able to apply, the mention is very clear:
A deep passion for gaming, preferably for sandbox FPS games.
From there to saying that the title will be one, there is a step that we will be careful not to take. In total, no less than ten job offers related to this project are available. As a reminder, unlike the second and third opus, Crysis first of the name fit perfectly into this category. A possible return to basics? Only the future will tell us.
