According to Crytek director of creative development Rasmus Hojengaard, Crysis 3 is the best game in the Crysis franchise.
"We have a lot of franchise legacy now working on the third installment of the game," Hojengaard said. "We have a really passionate, really driven team who wants to do the best game in the franchise so far. And we have a stable and reliable technology platform, which is really important in order to polish the game to the level we want. And obviously since we're not developing the console version of the engine, which was the case with Crysis 2, it leaves us in a completely different situation."
