So that means Crysis, Crysis: Warhead, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Crysis 3 Digital Deluxe Edition and Crysis 3: Lost Island Expansion are now available as a single purchase for £34.99.

Publisher EA is shaking things up and among the casualties list is apparently the EA Partners label which saw third-party developers have their work signed up for distribution through EA's retail channels.

Developer Crytek reveals that they already have plans in mind for the next Crysis after Crysis 3, but it won't be called 'Crysis 4' as "it would be misleading," given that Prophet's story concludes.

Calling it '4' would "imply the story just moves on," but it doesn't. The studio is looking into something "much more radical and new" for the future of the franchise; no pre-production yet.
