Crytek has started hiring for Crysis 4 – Don’t expect the game to launch anytime soon
Want to work on Crysis 4? Crytek are now hiring staff to create a next-generation shooter
Last year Crytek confirmed that Crysis 4 (Working Title) is in development, and this week Crytek has released a new video titled “A CRYSIS is Coming. We need your help”, confirming that the company is now hiring new staff to create their next Crysis title.
In their video, Crytek advertises roles that include “Lead Producer”, “Lead AI Programmer”, and “Lead Environmental Artist”, implying that Crysis 4 remains in very early development, which means that gamers should not expect to see a next-generation Crysis game anytime soon.
On Crytek’s website, there are over 20 roles that are advertised under the “Crysis 4 (Working Title) heading, all of which are listed under Crytek Frankfurt, though these jobs can also be worked on remotely.
Crysis 3 released on PC and consoles in February 2013, making the newest Crysis game almost nine years old. That said, the Remastered editions of Crysis, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 for PC and consoles have revitalised interest in the series in recent years, creating demand for an all-new Crysis game. Unfortunately, Crysis Warhead is yet to receive an official remaster from Crytek, much to our displeasure.
Crysis 4 has the potential to benefit from nine years of CryEngine development and the upgraded hardware that is available within today’s PCs and consoles. Those changes alone should help to ensure that Crysis 4 will take the series to new graphical heights.
Below is what Crytek’s CEO Avni Yerli had to say about Crysis 4 when the game was revealed in early 2022.
