In an interview with Bone-idle on Feb. 16, Michael Read was asked about the potential of PS4 and Xbox 720 ports for the upcoming multiplatform title, “Crysis 3.” The producer at Crytek revealed that, although they can’t talk much about the next-generation systems yet, the development is ultimately up to the consumer to decide. He also disclosed that the new console launches will be exciting, comparing it to previous technology races of the past. You can check out some screens from “Crysis 3,” as well as some fan made concepts of the PS4 and Xbox 720, in the slideshow at the top of this article. The comments from Michael Read can be found below (courtesy of Bone-idle):
That’s a question that keeps coming up we will have to wait and see there is a lot of speculation on the next gen stuff that we can’t talk about so we will have to wait and see what happens, I guess that’s up to the consumer.
It is exciting though it reminds me of the time in the industry when we have the CDi and Sony and Nintendo and all these guys battling it out, it really is a technology race almost like VHS and Betamax way back in the day and it will be interesting to see what happens.
“Crysis 3” is due to come out for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms in North America on Feb. 19. The first-person shooter will be published by Electronic Arts. You can pre-order the product in the following link: “Crysis 3”
