EA Job Posting Points to Crysis 3?
In a posting on EA’s career network, a new job ad is seeking a video director to work with Crytek to capture game footage, create video assets, and “challenge the paradigm of video game trailer creative.”
Specifically, the ad (found by AllGamesBeta) points out that knowledge of the CryEngine (the engine used for the Crysis series) would be an asset.
As the last entry in the franchise Crysis 2 sold upwards of three million copies since its March 2011 release date, a sequel isn’t too much of a farfetched argument. It’s also worth noting that Crysis 2 was the most pirated game of last year, which goes to show that a fair amount of people enjoyed this game, paid or not.
Is Crysis 3 on the horizon? It’s certainly possible, but Crytek could also have an interest in using their CryEngine tech for a brand new IP, yet to be revealed.
If anything’s for sure, the company has its hands full. With the multiplatform Homefront 2 and Kinect-centered Ryse both in development from Crytek, it will be interesting to see what announcements come out of the studio next.
