Crysis 3 Release Date – February 2013
Crysis 2 received mixed reviews from both critics and gamers. Some liked it for its great visuals and gameplay and some of them hated it for the same two factors.
As far as visuals were concerned, many gamers believed that they were no different than other sequels of FPS genre games. In that category Fear 2 Project Origin, Dead Space 2, Mass Effect 2, etc. were compared with Crysis 2. Though, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 are TPS (third person shooter) games, the reasons to include them were because they too had amazing visuals and gameplay.
Other people/gamers/critics who liked Crysis 2, said that Crysis 2 doesn’t fall under a normal FPS game, because the gameplay was a lot intense and clever than its competitors. Stealth and melee attacks were far more impressive than the likes of Splinter Cell Conviction and Resident Evil 5, respectively. Again, Crysis 2 was being compared with TPS (third person shooter) games, rather than with Bioshock 2: Sea of Dreams and Left for Dead 2.
Crysis 2 Has Amazing Visuals and Tones
So... now we have two groups around Crysis 2 with some positive reviews and some negative reviews. But in the end, what matters is that Crysis 2 won by miles from its competitors. So... it was only fair to speculate a release of Crysis 3 or may be something related to the story of Tunguska Iteration (a substance that was able to increase capability of Alcatraz nanosuit to fight Ceph’s spore).
Also, Crytek’s CEO Cevat Yerli pointed it out that CryEngine 3 could handle pretty much any game that their competitors were developing or have already developed but their engine would not suffice for the power needed to handle Crysis 2. The statement may have been farfetched but it certainly gave away a hint of something that he was planning to do with CryEngine 3 to make Crysis 3 the most amazing FPS game ever.

Possibilities are endless and Crysis 2 left us wanting for more. The story is still left out about how Ceph got the whole world surrounded without the big powers even realizing it. Also, we heard a transmission, when Prophet (I guess, if it wasn’t Alcataraz) gets back in the suit again and stands up to fight for future, from Karl Rasch (CEO of Hargreave-Rasch Corporation) signalling that there were more to come and much to happen.
Now... based on our experiences with EA on previous release dates of Crysis, one can only assume that after 2011, they need at least 3 years of time span to develop the game.
Release date of 2011 does not mean that they started developing Crysis 2 just after the release of Crysis Wars. Just like that, through a reliable source and my very good friend, Akash Verma, I came to know that they started developing the storyline of Crysis 3 back when Crysis 2 was announced and that would be like 1st of June 2009.
As far as the development of game is concerned, it was being developed somewhat parallel to Crysis 2 (not completely but to a little extent to include features that gamers alright liked). Keeping that in mind, the earliest possible year of release date of Crysis 3 seems to be 2013 and the month appears to be April (just a guess).
Right now, one of the biggest rumours about Crysis 3 is regarding support for Quad-HD and 4D (Fourth Dimension Gaming).
Yeah! I know that 4th dimension is Time. But in terms of gaming, by 4th dimension, I mean playing in the game in itself. Like those sci-movies where you actually feel everything.
Like Matrix, only difference is that you won't actually die in Crysis 3 when shot.
