Is Crytek developing an online game?

Recently, LinkedIn profiles for two Crytek (developers of FPS Crysis) employees offered hints that Crytek may be developing an MMO. The profiles have since been altered with more vague descriptions, however superannuation (http://supererogatory.tumblr.com/) has reprinted the excerpts from both profiles containing the original job descriptions.

Check out James Dennett, Senior IT Manager, Crytek:

James’ LinkedIn profile now simply reads:

Senior IT Manager

I work at Crytek in the IT team.

This is exciting news for those who have both the graphics power to run Crytek’s cutting edge game engines while having enough internet bandwidth/latency for a MMOFPS.
