EA returns as publisher; Wii U edition not mentioned; Steam edition unlikely

Frankfurt headquartered studio Crytek is building the third instalment of its blockbuster Crysis series, with the game set to launch on current generation consoles in 2013.

The title will be published by EA on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC at an unspecified date in 2013.

It could mark Crytek’s final game on the current generation of consoles, with Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo each working on their next-generation systems.

In a joint statement by EA and Crytek, it was suggested that Crysis 3 will not be released on Wii U – though such a move could still be announced at a later date.

EA Origin has publishing rights for the PC edition – likely meaning the title will not appear on Valve’s Steam.

Crysis 2 was removed from the Steam portal after an alleged dispute between EA and Valve over DLC royalties and rights.

"Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli

“Leveraging the latest CryEngine technology, we're able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game."
