Crytek may expand Crysis series beyond first-person shooters

The next installment in the Crysis franchise may not be a first-person shooter, according to an interview with producer Michael Elliot Read published on Dusty Cartridge.

"Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we've built a really cool universe," Read said. "We haven't really gone in and said 'Hey let's put Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP.' We've done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, we have a lot more life left in that to go back and try some unique stuff. Whether it's FPS or not I have no idea, but there's definitely a future in the franchise."

Read's comments echo those of Crytek's co-founder, Cevat Yerli, who said last year that the successor to Crysis 3 will be "something much more radical and new."

Crysis 3 is set for a Feb. 19 North American release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. It will release in Europe Feb. 22.
