One shooting is as good as another: the director of Hitman 3 joins the development team of Crysis 4, the social profile of the series reveals it
A small teaser dating back to January confirmed the existence of Crysis 4and fans of the existing series are likely to be joined by some players of Hitman 3. The news on the title in progress are still scarce, but the shooter (continuation of the third chapter dating back to 2012) is in gestation to the detriment of the press blackout. Today, however, the game’s Twitter profile announced who will lead the creative process. And as you may have guessed from our incipit, the new face in the ranks of Crytek will give the project a respectable pedigree, despite two different gameplay rhythms.
From the bald head of Hitman 3 to the helmet of Crysis 4
The director of Hitman 3, Mattias Engström, joins the large Crytek family to give life to Crysis 4. Engström includes the entire trilogy of Agent 47’s “murderous world” in his resume, but not only. The chief designer took the reins of the finale for the macrotrama of IO InteractiveTrue, but before that he also assisted Ubisoft as a level designer for Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. Before that, he looked after the sleeper series World in Conflict, again for the transalpine publisher. We let you consult the post on Crytek’s social profile.

Crytek took advantage of the announcement to direct attention to its own job offers. The German studio is offering many seats for its desks, from art directors to game and level designers. Unfortunately, these are not encouraging roles for the anticipation that fans of the series will have to face. The confirmation of the development of the title dates back to a 2012 that seems very far away. At the time, the CEO of Crytek Cevat Native insisted on the series’ future free-to-play. We’ll see if we still find the peaceful coexistence between fiction and business model that Yerli was talking about at the time.
