It seems like Crytek has reached the maximum potential of the current generation consoles and are gloating the fact that Crysis 3, in terms of graphics at least, isn’t too far off from the next generation launch games.
From the unique game world to the level of immersion, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli takes great pride in his team’s upcoming shooter:
“I actually think people will be astonished that next gen launch titles from other companies might not be much different from Crysis 3. Crysis 3 has its own visual identity, [the urban rainforest] is a world that hasn’t been done before, that kind of depiction, the quality and level of immersion. I think no game has ever done that kind of setting, it’s a visual spectacle.”
Will Crysis 3 really be just one step behind next generation launch games? I guess we’ll just have to see exactly how the next generation looks to see if Cevat’s statement stands up.
