Eurogamer reports: CryEngine will support Wii U development, Crytek has announced. Speaking in an interview with Develop, CEO Cevat Yerli confirmed that "Crytek's support for Wii U is definitely going to happen."
Hopefully next Crysis is better...
It would seem that they are finally get that hard-core third party support they keep talking about. That is good news at least.
It look like wii u could get some 3 party support. Hopefully it doesn't fall flat like the gamecube did with 3rd party support.
The hate towards Nintendo is huge. How sad. And yet they are gonna dominate. The void between Wii-U, ps4 and the next xbox will not be so big this time :)
how do you know that?you must have some leaked specs.
i really liked crysis 2... Im looking forward to a new one
My fear is that 3rd party support on the Wii U will dwindle once the PS4 and 720 hit shelves. When that happens if the Wii U doesn't have a significant enough install base (as in 50 mil already) then developers are going to almost completely drop Wii U support as they bring in their new engines. No dev. wants to develop a new engine for next gen consoles, yet have to work on a console that's practically on par/slightly better with the current gen (if Gametrailers is to be believed then the Wii U is practically a slightly more powerful Xbox 360). What I see happening is the Wii U having 2 years worth of day and date 3rd party support, but that will drop by 40% when the 720 comes out, then another 40% when the PS4 comes out. And once that happens we'll be getting Wii U games running off the same code as a PS Vita or vice versa, which is what happened with Wii and PSP. But this time both the Wii U and PSV are nearly identical in interface, and the PSV makes up for graphical loss by being on a smaller screen. One thing to note about the PSV is that according to Game Informer the PSV does have HDMI out, maybe it was a mistake, but it was printed in their June issue.
Cryengine sucks, it's a buggy mess and the grain glitch makes the latter half of Crysis 2 look horrible. It looks like a low quality streamed video and it's still not fixed over 3 months later! Crytek are amateurs.
