After the silence that followed the announcement of Crysis 4 being in development, Crytek has finally decided to share some news regarding the wok on the highly anticipated game.
Yesterday the developers announced that Mattias Engström, previously working at IO Interactive, has joined their ranks.
Hitman director comes on board
The studio announced Engström's "transfer" via social media:
- The Swedish developer is set to serve as the main director of the upcoming Crysis 4.
- It won't be his first time supervising a video game - Engström's credits include directing Hitman 3 from 2021, as well as working on level design for two previous installments in the series.
- The newly announced director also had an episode at Ubisoft in his career, where he worked as a level designer on Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
All hands on deck
Along with the announcement of Mattias Engström as the new director, Crytek decided to send out a call to anyone interested in working on the latest installment of Crysis.
The list of open positions is long - from art director, through level designers to AI programmers.
It looks like Crytek still has a long way to go to finalize the project, but we look forward to more status updates in the future. Let's hope it's all good news.
