Cevat Yerli has provided some commentary in regards to the PS4 and Xbox 720 support for their CryEngine 3, which was used for the upcoming multiplatform title, “Crysis 3.” According to a report by Eurogamer on Feb. 18, the CEO of Crytek believed that their game engine is already ready for the next-generation systems. This is because they were able to predict the capabilities of the consoles back in 2009. You can check out some concept designs of the PS4 and Xbox 720 in the slideshow at the top of this article in addition to the comments from Cevat Yerli below (courtesy of Eurogamer):
When we went out to GDC we said CryEngine 3 was next-gen ready. That message was born by the research of prediction of where things were going. It was clear we were capable then to make next-gen games because there wouldn't be much more than what the CryEngine could do at that point.
The PS4 and Xbox 720 will most likely be coming out in the North American region sometime before the start of next year.
“Crysis 3” will be released for the PC platform, as well as the current-generation PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles, on Feb. 19. The first-person shooter was developed jointly be two internal Crytek studios and will be published by Electronic Arts. You can pre-order the title in the following link: “Crysis 3”
