Hitman 3 game director will lead Crysis 4 development

Crysis 4 was announced in January with a tiny teaser trailer, but aside from the fact that it exists, and that “Crysis 4” is just a working title, nothing else was divulged. Since then we’ve heard nothing about the forthcoming first-person shooter—the series’ first since 2012’s Crysis 3—but rest assured it’s alive. Today, the official Crysis Twitter account announced the project’s game director.

And it’s a name you might recognize: Mattias Engström was the game director of Hitman 3, but is now joining Crytek to lead development on Crysis 4. Engström has had a hand in all of IO Interactive’s modern Hitman trilogy, serving as a level designer on the first two before taking the reins on the finale. He’s also worked as a level designer at Ubisoft, most notably on Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. Before that, he worked on Ubisoft’s dormant World in Conflict series.
