CryEngine 3 Brings Crysis 2 to All Major Platforms

Category: Gaming
Posted: 03:29PM

German developer Crytek has always been a PC-only developer, creating such gems as Far Cry, Crysis and Crysis Warhead. With the creation of its newest engine, CryEngine 3, Crytek can now enter previously unchartered waters; the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. CryEngine 3 allows Crytek to simultaneously develop games for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and the first such game is none other than Crysis 2. News of the cross-platform development was announced this morning and publisher Electronic Arts confirmed the news at its own press conference just a few minutes ago. The news of a sequel to the critically-acclaimed first-person shooter Crysis is sure to please many people, and now console gamers will get to see what all the fuss is about first-hand.

Hopefully the fact that the cryengine was a PC engine ported to consoles mean that the PC versions of multiplatform games will be better than a lot of the half assed ports we see.

Neither the 360 nor the PS3 can support DX10, so I'm guessing running DX10 on Vista/Win7 will be the superior platform.

Actually, Win7 has DX11

The reason I said DX10 is because, unless Crytek is keeping it secret, CryEngine3 doesn't support DX11. Nevertheless, unlike the DX9-to-DX10 jump, DX11 is backward compatible with DX10, so good news for all us with DX10 cards.
