The world's worst kept secret has finally come to an end as EA officially confirm the existence of Crysis 3. The game will take place in the year 2047 transporting players back to New York, only it’s now been ravaged by terrible conditions to resemble an “urban rainforest” littered with swamps, trees and rivers. The game world will be divided into seven distinct hubs, each of which will boast of different evvironmental elements.

You’ll step into the boots of Prophet once again as he goes toe-to-toe against the uber powerful and not to mention diabolically evil Cell Corporation. Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek had this to say, “Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love. Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we're able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
The image leaked earlier is ironically part of the game’s special edition called the Hunter Edition which means it won’t be available to everyone from the get go. The game’s already up for pre-order across the Xbox360, PS3 and PC but don’t expect it to hit stands before 2013.
