Many of you might not have heard of Crysis before but when it was first released on PC in 2007, it was considered to be the ultimate standard for visual superiority due to how demanding it was. Gamers used to measure their gaming devices’ speed and prowess by playing Crysis at maximum requirements. Crytek, the company behind the series, continued to release two more sequels for the game in 2011 and 2013.
Crysis is a first person shooter where the player is armed with a futuristic nanosuit that gives him extraordinary abilities. The game series was powered by the legendary CRYENGINE which the developers are now making available for the first time at the hands of mobile gaming developers. The beta program allows developers to sign up for it by clicking here.
Theodor Mader, Technical Director at Crytek, has been quoted by WCCFTECH to be saying the following:
The CRYENGINE team is dedicated to helping game makers achieve their vision by putting the most powerful tools in the industry at their fingertips. We’re proud that teams of all sizes, all around the world, choose our game development platform, and by participating in the beta program, developers will get to experience what CRYENGINE can achieve on mobile chipsets, as well as participate in the development of the new Android pipeline.
Mobile developers can now use the power of CRYENGINE to develop breathtaking mobile games which is a revolutionary step towards the console-quality experience we all would love to partake in. The fact that Crytek is allowing developers access to their most prized tool can mean that it would be possible for them to partner with a mobile gaming studio in order to bring Crysis to mobile devices. Smartphones now are more than capable to run AAA Games and we have seen plenty of top titles make their way to mobile devices.
Finally, while there is no official statement saying that Crysis is coming to mobile, there remains the possibility that it can happen. Crytek clearly sees the advantage of the mobile gaming industry and with games like PUBG, Fortnite, Call of Duty, and many more coming to mobile devices, then why wouldn’t they consider it? All these mobile games have been extremely profitable and that is why the Crysis series would be very successful on mobile as it was on other platforms.
