Crytek on developing next-gen games now

Crytek is ready to show off what it can do on next-generation platforms, says studio boss Cevat Yerli. As the game industry holds its breath for the arrival of PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox, Crytek believes that its CryEngine 3 represents a glimpse of what’s next – and what’s next is already taking place on high-end PCs. (Crysis 3, Crytek, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Until Source 2 comes out alongside Half Life 3 and destroys every engine out there.

Leave it alone, Crytek.


You make above average games, your tech is nowhere near as easy to use or widespread as UE4, or as impressive or intricate as Frostbite.

You can't be serious when you mentioned Cryengine being hard to use and Unreal Engine being easy. I distinctly remember myself making islands full of vegetation and enemies on screen more than five years ago, with no practice or an education. I tried that with unreal engine and my brain just went "derp"

Pure bunk.

We don't know what the Source 2 engine will be capable of or how it will compare to other top engines.

Second of all, nobody said that Crytek's engine was in as wide as use as Unreal 3 engine (or Unreal 4 engine will likely be).

Lastly, Crysis 2 looks much better to my eyes than Battlefield 3. I have both of them absolutely maxed out and Crysis 2 looks quite a bit better. Especially in terms of textures and lighting/shadowing quality.

Crysis 3 will probably blow away Battlefield 3.

Pfft I wish Half Life 3 was coming. It has been far too long since I have heard anything of the sort other than pure rumors.

Quite a disappointment. No idea what Valve is thinking.

crytek make amazing games? like 'id' they make half decent games backed by great tech

Games have always been backed by great tech...that i can agree on, but if their games are half decent is just a matter of opinion. I love the stories & their gameplay options and the graphics in their Crysis games(which most gamers here...here on N4G do not seem to understand)and i think the Cryengine is one of the best today. I think their games are amazing too. They have their unique thing going on, which is very hard to achieve these days. Respect to Crytek.
