Crytek: Crysis 2's purpose 'isn't to dethrone Call of Duty'

Crytek’s ambition with sci-fi sequel Crysis 2 isn’t to supplant Call of Duty as the dominant FPS on the market, but to deliver a title that “hits the gamer’s nerve,” says the esteemed developer.

The story is too old to be commented.

BF3 will take care of that. They just need to make sure that they will deliver a great experience.

Crysis 2 is like the first wave from EA then BF3 is like the calvary. Kinda like a double sucker-punch towards the most popular version of CoD(MW) to prove that CoD isn't the top dog anymore.

CoD has NEVER been the top dog, only the best seller.

I'd want to agree with you but B3's potential can only be realized on PC's. I'm not looking forward to the console versions at all. Meanwhile, COD being crappy as it is - is being loved by all sheep. The PC experience, does not make it any better... and that's the difference.

Is there some out of text stuff going on this article. it almost sounds like the guy who wrote this trying to make crytek say there better than call of duty we will be no1.
be honist i honistly dont see crytek saying that. not that end part anyway sounds bit iffy.

But in all farness cod has had its day. its been around long time what have they really done for us. same engine since cod4 increased prices. like my freinds always say best thing they dont put in zombies.

Na we need batlefield 3 we need crysis we need good devs that can make good team based FPS. no run gun low res textures.

aaaa yyaaa....COD has already bin kicked off the kings seat in MY head and halo took its place and now Crysis will take its place....dont care about what reality says about if COD is in the kings seat of shooter or whatever

COD will dethrone itself. If anything can be learned from GH, you can only release the same game annually for so long before the entire game's gameplay becomes extremely boring.

COD is a good game, but even I can't play the same game for 4 years strait.

For me COD is, 'been there, done that'. I've purchased pretty much the same game 3 times in 4 years. No more COD for me.
