Crysis 2 Set In New York

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I feel sorry for Crysis. Its outrageous hardware demands often see it dismissed as a vapid beauty queen and it came out in 2007, arguably the best fps year in history which also saw Bioshock and Modern Warfare (which I prefer to MW2). Three years later, however, it is the only one I'm still playing/finding ever more ingenious ways of dispatching the ridiculously stereotyped North Korean soldiers*, so guess who couldn't be happier...?

Yep, developers Crytek have let the big news about Crysis 2 out of the bag: it is being moved to New York City! Speaking to PlayStation: the Official Magazine, CEO and president of CryTek Cevat Yerli said: “This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it’s the first title we are developing for consoles {there will still be a PC version} and the first title being built on CryEngine 3."

Crysis 2 will also feature the 'Nanosuit 2.0' which, while much hyped (see video), has its exact details still shrouded in mystery. So will swapping a jungle for an 'urban jungle' work? Will the alien bits finally be as much fun as the soldier interactions? We'll know before the end of the year...

* For the record, my favourite: run into the open with a chicken in hand, switch to strength and kill a soldier by throwing the chicken at him, use speed to sprint into a nearby hut, switch to invisible, wait for the hut to populate with angry soldiers, sneak out, switch to strength and punch down the hut on all four corners. Best toll to date: 14!

Update: my bad, wrong trailer linked. Amended.
