There are three realistic routes this could go. This could be the start of marketing a new Crysis game, which would almost assuredly be on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at this point. Second, it could be a remastering of some or all of the original trilogy. Crysis 3 launched in early 2013, before current-gen consoles hit the market. The whole franchise is a prime candidate for the remaster treatment. Or, it could be a full-on series reboot.
Your guess is as good as anyone else’s because “Receiving Data” is all the intel we have right now. Personally, I’m on-board for a remaster of the original if and only if it takes an SLI-configured multi-RTX 2080 Ti setup to run well.
