Crytek looks set to abandon its traditional tropical island setting with its next game. How do we know? As Shacknews points out, PlayStation: The Official Magazine Editor-in-Chief Gary Steinman has posted the cover of his magazine's March 2010 issue on Twitter. The headline on the cover leaves little to the imagination:
(Too subtle? Steinman's Tweet also trumpets, "WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Crysis 2 set in NYC!!")
The folks at Shacknews learned from Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitillo earlier this month that Crysis 2, along with several other EA games, will see the light of day some time between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. The game will reportedly be a multi-platform release.
Back in March 2009, Crytek demonstrated a version of its engine capable of scaling down to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The company said the engine was capable of scaling up to "all major upcoming platforms," as well, so perhaps the PC version of Crysis 2 could produce prettier graphics than other cross-platform games.
