As Crysis 3 slowly creeps to its Feb. 2013 launch, developer Crytek is already talking about Crysis 4 and what type of game it may or may not be. However, one thing is for certain, this game is headed for the Xbox 720.

The Crysis games are good and undoubtedly it would be a good idea to branch out after the trilogy is over and done with. However, the difficult decision would be what direction to take for the next generation of Crysis games.

According to Crytek developer Michael Elliot, in an interview with Dusty Cartridge, the Crysis franchise has plenty of life left in it, which is a clear indication that the developers are planning to take the franchise further on next-generation consoles such as the Xbox 720 after the trilogy comes to an end.

"Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we've built a really cool universe," Elliot 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."

Elliot went on to state that he's not sure if future Crysis games will follow in the footsteps of the previous titles of being First-Person Shooters.

"Whether it's FPS or not I have no idea, but there's definitely a future in the franchise," averred Elliot

Future Crysis titles could work well as a strategy game similar to Halo Wars where players have control over soldiers in Nano suits. How about Crysis kart racing, or better yet, a game called Midlife Crysis? Admit it, that last one made you smile a bit.

None of the above makes much sense apart from a Crysis strategy game; however, game developers tend to create crazy spin-offs of popular franchises all the time.
