Crysis 3 Officially Exists, Will Be Out Next Spring

Newest sequel will take place inside the urban jungle of New York City.

Fairly substantial rumors popped up last week that the latest game in developer Crytek's popular Crysis shooter franchise would be getting an official announce sometime in the not-too-distant future. Apparently, that not-too-distant future translated to, like, a week, because hey, now we have a Crysis 3 announcement.

To be fair, there are parts of the Lower East Side that pretty much already look just like this.

The official announcement confirmed what we more or less already knew: that we'd be returning to New York City, and that our hero would have a totally sick looking bow. He's got that bow because he'll be traversing the dangerous rain forest environment that's evolved out of the doomed city. Crytek promises seven distinct environments set across the domed NYC, as well as all manner of corporate chicanery and revenge plotting.

So, there you have it. Crysis 3 is totally a thing, and looks like it'll meld the jungle environments of the first game with the urban environments of the second one, to create some kind of Frankenjunglecity. EA states the game is expected to release in Spring of 2013. There are pre-order bonuses too, because of course there are. You can read all about them in the official press release.
