The Crysis franchise could expand to involve different genres after Crysis 3.

The next installment in the series is set for a February release and will tie up the story for the trilogy.

Crytek producer, Michael Elliot Read, said any future games in the Crysis franchise don't necessarily have to be first-person shooters.

"You know, I think at this point I don't want to give anything away," Read told DustyCartridge. "But I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it.

"Whether it's in a different game type format, whether it's expanding upon this, it's hard to say. That's going to be up to the designers at the end of the day.

"But I think we've built... Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we've built a really cool universe. We haven't really gone in and said 'Hey let's put Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP'.

"We've done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, we have a lot more life left in that to go back and try some unique stuff. Whether it's FPS or not I have no idea, but there's definitely a future in the franchise."
