The publisher confirmed the release date during its E3 2012 presentation where gameplay footage from the shooter sequel was showcased.
The gameplay footage on show took place against a ruined New York City consumed by vegetation, highlighting the power of the CryEngine 3.
Announced in April, Crysis 3 sees Prophet discovering that New York has been encased in a 'Nanodome' by the Cell Corporation.
The dome has created a natural environment within the city, adding a rainforest, swamplands and rivers, as well as seven distinct locations named the Seven Wonders.
The game's creative director Rasmus Hoejengaard told Digital Spy that the return to New York was not an attempt to "cut corners or reuse assets", but to create a stronger emotional impact for both returning players and Americans.
Crysis 3 will be released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in February 2013.
