Developer of the Crysis series has revealed that a new Crysis is in the works, however it won't be called Crysis 4. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has said that "[Crysis 3] is the end of the story of Crysis, but it doesn't mean it's the end of the franchise," however a new title is still a distant product, with no pre-production or business model having been set.

Yerli details in the interview that a new Crysis will be an entirely new story, with the current Prophet protagonist being concluded in Crysis 3. The Crytek boss has said that the game won't be called Crysis 4, "because it would be misleading" and imply that the story will continue after Crysis 3.
Crytek is yet to begin pre-production on the next Crysis game, which, Yerli admitted, would normally have begun by now if the development cycle of Crysis 2 to Crysis 3 was being followed.

“Normally in this time right now we would already have pre-production going on, but because we want to make this something much more radical and new we are looking at it as a bit more of a long term thing. It's too early to talk about it for these reasons.”
Yerli has also been very opinionated with the free-to-play market, stating that Crytek would go on to only make F2P games after their current commitments are met with Crysis 3 and Homefront 2 for THQ. Yerli confirmed with Eurogamer that the Crytek studio is indeed working on a F2P Crysis title, but it may "exist as a traditional retail game/F2P hybrid as the industry transitions to the next-generation of consoles."

Sounds like it's just more new games with the power suit. Which is sweet. Recently playing the Crysis 3 Alpha, it made me remember how fun and interesting it is. I went back to play some BF3 CQ after and it actually felt kind of boring and I was wanting the power suit controls.

As for Free to Play... I kind of get the feeling these suit certain markets rather than others. I just have a gut feeling that Australia is too small a market for them to be worth while and workable.

Crytek, make a game with the suit but without aliens, I can almost guarantee it'll sell more. The SP missions where you fought humans are infinitely better than the alien parts.
