We’re Not Working On A Next Gen Xbox At The Moment-Crytek

GameBlurb, "There have a rumors speculating that famed developer Crytek may just have their hands on a next-gen Xbox which would debut at 2012. Crytek shuts those rumors down." (Next-Gen, Xbox 360)

One thing
I have learned is that companies and developers lie a LOT of course they are not going to admit it that would cause a lot of problems in the market and Microsoft or even Sony for that matter would not be happy if another company confirmed a next gen console existance.

Developers always work on new tech in advance with mock up systems and am definently sure they are working on the next gen tech to be prepared as am sure both companies Sony and Microsoft have an idea what they want in their next console.

They may not be working on the actual new console persay, but you know they are optimizing their engine for the targeted specs of the next console.

Exactly...
Dev kits won't be available for several months...maybe a whole year...if the rumored E3 2012 announcement and launch dates are true. When dev'ing on 360 started, early birds like Bethesda, EPIC, EA, etc. were using custom Mac G5s ; the final 360 dev kits, with the real hardware, didn't come until months later.

Anyone working on games that are 2-4 years out, knows basically what MS's next hardware will be capable of. They'll build their games on PCs...like always...FIRST, then finish with the final spec'd dev kits.

Good, I prefer the Frostbite 2.0 engine or Id Tech engine used from Rage

It would be smart of Microsoft to get one of the best devs in the industry into their boat.

They are trying to do so I believe. Ryse looks like a decent Kinect game. I am just worried that Microsoft wants full on Kinect games from them and nothing else. I was excited for Kingdoms until I heard it was Kinect and Ryse now. Although I have some hopes for it they have slumped since Kinect was mentioned.

And when the next Xbox launches a crytek game will magically appear near launch. They always say this early in development. The cycle of development rumors circle until it gets so bad console devs have to admit a new system is on it's way. Same cycle everytime a console is in development.

Crytek and Epic middleware a must...
.
Unless you want to relive the nightmare that is the PS3 development cycle this gen, you have to have middleware solutions available for devs who want to make games on you system. If you want to have games that take full use of your system at launch, then it's CRITICAL, at the very least, to give them a couple years notice...it's here.

M$ launched the redesigned 360 S at E3 2010 and it went on sale right away. The new console will be no different.

Crytek was rumored earlier this week to be in possession of some sort of dev kit and, I would expect that only a small number of Crytek engineers would have access and knowledge. To add more fuel to the rumor is the fact that Crytek has already said the Timesplitters is in production and that it will NOT be on this gen of consoles but the next.

In 2010, there was an article from one of the trade papers that deal with this type of stuff and they said that M$ had already, at that time locked up the next version of Xbox with the same cast of characters that exist in the 360...ATI and AMD being front and center.

Do you really believe that M$ doesn't have a up and running dev kit for their next console...lol...THEY ALL DO. Why is Nintendo being so secretive about their specs??? If you believe the sheeple, PS3 and 360 will be around for another 10 years...O_o
