Earlier this year developer and publisher Crytek surprised us all by bringing the original Crysis back from the dead. Released under the name Crysis Remastered, the seriously slick 2007 first-person shooter was given a new coat of paint and released on current-gen consoles in better shape than ever before.
Crysis Remastered has been out for little over a month, but fans old and new have been absolutely loving the chance to experience the classic FPS on modern hardware. The good news is that it sounds like Crytek doesn't on plan on leaving the Crysis revival at just one remaster, either. A series of leaked documents allegedly taken from the company reveals plans for a number of unannounced projects, including remasters of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, as well as some kind of Crysis-inspired battle royale.
As reported by DSO Gaming, these documents started doing the rounds on Reddit earlier this week and detailed a handful of unannounced titles - with plenty of emphasis on Crysis.
As per the leaks, the working titles for these projects are Crysis Next (a battle royale), Crysis VR, Hunt Mobile, Ryme Next, and Robinson 2. It's worth noting, of course, that the mention of these games in what appear to have been internal documents are not the same as confirmation, and many of these titles may not get beyond initial pitches.
Further perusal of the documents also seems to have turned up the existence of Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered, as well as a collection which would, presumably, contain all three games. Although the release dates in the below tweet don't line up with the date we know Crysis Remastered launched, it's interesting to see that plans are afoot - and perhaps not entirely surprising.
Crysis 1 Remaster - 2/20
Crysis 2 Remaster - 8/20
Crysis 3 Remaster - 2/21
Crysis Collection - 5/21

Further Crysis remasters definitely line up with what we'd previously heard from Tim Willits of Saber Interactive, who worked alongside Crytek on Crysis Remastered. A tweet which has since been deleted, Willits suggested the remaster would feature multiplayer single-player campaigns.
Given that the Warhead expansion has been officially ruled out, speculation quickly turned to the idea that Crytek will remaster both sequels and include all campaigns in one collection - just as these alleged leaks seem to confirm. While none of the remasters will come with multiplayer, fans are hoping that Crysis Next - a 100-player battle royale with "high production values" - might just scratch that itch. Watch this space.
