Crynet Systems is a company that created the Nanosuit for the United States government circa 2020. Their logos and company indicia appear on the menu screens of Crysis and Crysis Warhead.

In Crysis 2, Crynet Systems becomes relevant to the story of the series.


Crynet Systems is likely a shell company for Hargreave-Rasch Biomedical, a company founded by Jacob Hargreave and Karl Rasch after they stole Ceph technology from the Tunguska crash site in 1919. Crynet developed the nanosuit from alien technology, and Hargreave knew of the aliens on the island before the nanosuited soldiers were sent there in August 2020. Hargreave also chose to use the technology to artificially extend his life, while Rasch supposedly did not; however, after Alcatraz destroyed the Ceph, Rasch contacted him, indicating he is still alive over a hundred years later. It is unclear what will become of Crynet after the battle of New York City, as most of their buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed.

Crynet Enforcement and Local LogisticsEdit

Crynet Enforcement and Local Logistics, abbreviated CELL, is Crynet Systems' private mercenary group, which patrols New York City and fights the Ceph invasion during the events of Crysis 2. CELL is headed by Commander Lockhart and Tara Strickland, the latter of whom is a CIA mole. After Lockhart is killed by Alcatraz and the Ceph are wiped out of the city, it is unknown what became of CELL.
