Crytek talks Crysis, the next Xbox and watching Far Cry grow up

OXM - Crytek is the games industry's newest superpower. The company started in 1999 with a PC tech demo; that blossomed into the beautiful but blundering Far Cry. Ubisoft took subsequent development in-house, so Crytek applied its learnings to the glossier Crysis and its more open sequel Crysis 2. Now, it may have nailed the formula with Crysis 3, reviewed on page XXX - and perfected its hugely-impressive engine technology just in time for the arrival of the next Xbox, where it will be powering Homefront 2 and a new game from the creators of Darksiders - both from studios the company owns outright. We spoke to founder and CEO Cevat Yerli, about building Crysis and guessing what the next generation of consoles is capable of.

The story is too old to be commented.

Actually a really good read. Amazing that a PC developer could have me so excited for the next gen console launch

It's been quite a while since Crytek was a PC developers: most of their studios now actually have more experience with console development: including Free Radical (Crytek UK), Vigil (Crytek US) and that studio developing Ryse.
Crytek grew very nicely in the past few years. Too bad they never really understood what was the original appeal of their first Far Cry game - ever since the first Crysis they botched up the experience.

Far Cry 3 is all about immersion and the thrill of the hunt. Love this game and is in my top 5 of all time. If you haven't played it do yourself a favor. I'd would buy it cause your getting a 30 hour campaign, decent fun multiplayer and map editor, plus 4 player co-op. What more could you want?

Oh yeah jet skis and sharks nuff said.

I agree about everything but top 5--but that's always subjective anyways ;)

Its a great game though.

Didnt they say %60 percent of creating a great game is all graphics? Im guessing the other %40 is split for %30 multiplayer & %5 gameplay & %5 story which does not lead to a winning formula.
