Hardly a surprise, this. Crytek has been expected to announce a third game in the Crysis series since just after the second one was released. It looks like that announcement is now imminent though.
GameReactor magazine covers in Sweden are sporting a fancy, nanosuit style hex pattern. This has led some sleuths on NeoGAF to predict a Crysis 3 announcement very soon. If that was all, we’d likely agree and move on, wait for the official word. But EA’s Origin store has also had a little slip.
If you searched for “Crysis 3 Pre-order Origin.com” then the results returned a link to the Origin store where they were advertising the pre-order of the unannounced sequel.
That entry on Origin seems to have been taken down now but it’s presence on EA’s digital distribution platform, coupled with the Swedish magazine cover, seems to offer compelling evidence of a reveal within the next week or so.
