Hitman 3 Game Director joins Crytek to direct Crysis 4

Hitman 3 director Mattias Engstrom has left IO Interactive to helm Crysis 4 at Crytek Studios.

The official Crysis Twitter account shared the news (below), saying Engstrom will be joining the team this week to lead the new Crysis game.

While he was Game Director at IO Interactive for only three years, Engstrom has spent much longer at the studio, where he has worked since 2014.

Previously, he spent almost ten years at Massive Entertainment from 2004 to 2014 while the studio was developing games such as Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Far Cry 3.

Very little is known about the new Crysis game. Crytek teased it with a brief trailer in January following an online leak, with CEO Avni Yerli saying Crysis 4 is “in early development, so it’s going to be a while.”

He added, “We wanted to bring you the news at this time as we are so excited for the future and let you know that we will be listening to our community.”

Given that the game’s director only joined the team this week, it’s likely that Crysis 4 is still years away, but Crytek hasn’t given a release date, window, or year.

Crysis 3 was released nine years ago, but IGN was a fan of the entire series. We said that the first and third games were great, while the second game was fantastic.

Hitman 3 was also well received, with IGN saying in our 9/10 review, “Rich, rewarding, and highly replayable, Hitman 3 is one of the barcode butcher’s best performances.”
