European studio network's Budapest team to make Crysis Warhead for PCCrytek and EA have once again signed up to work together, this time on a sequel to PC game Crysis.
Crysis Warhead is 'the parallel story' to Crysis, which was launched last year.
The first game was developed by the German studio, but the sequel will be the first project handled by the developer's new Budapest team.
"We were very pleased with the reception of Crysis from both
gamers and media after our launch last year," said Cevat Yerli, CEO and president of Crytek.
"That being said, one of the key principles of our studio is to always raise the bar. With Warhead, we are focusing on refining our storytelling and game performance, while also delivering more of the visually stunning graphics and immersive, free-roaming gameplay everyone loved in Crysis."
David DeMartini, VP and global GM of EA Partners, commented: "The best result of a partnership that we can ask for in the EA Partners program is when a world class independent studio like Crytek chooses to continue to work with us.
"Crysis was an amazing game and is going to be a blockbuster franchise. We could not be more excited to be working with Crytek to launch another hit with Crysis Warhead this year."
