Crytek Sheds Some Light on Crysis 2

In the latest issue of PC Gamer Magazine, Nathan Camarillo, executive producer of Crysis 2, spilled some details on Crysis 2. Evidently, the sequel won't take place on the tropical island setting that we're familiar with in Crysis. Crysis 2 takes place in a "new style of jungle." What exactly that means, I don't know.

"We are applying our expertise to a new style of "jungle" which we will discuss more in the upcoming months, but it is definitely far from tropical," said Camarillo. "We are very excited to introduce Crysis-style sandbox gameplay to a different, yet ultimately familiar environment." Enemy AI is being completely overhauled as well. They will utilize their environment to their advantage.

When asked if the game will be "gimped" since it's coming to consoles, Camarillo explained, "Not necessarily...In some ways it has allowed us to avoid over-designing features, to keep the focus narrower and tight for a compelling experience on all platforms."

Crytek says they want Crysis to be included as a successful cross-platform franchise. "There are many successful cross-platform shooter franchises on the market, and it's time that Crysis sat proudly among that group," he added.
