Crytek: Crysis 3 is 'maxing out' current gen

CEO Cevat Yerli claims "no game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3" on current gen; says Crysis 2 is technically superior to most games.


Crysis 3 will be one of the most technically competent titles ever released on current-generation consoles. That's according to studio CEO Cevat Yerli, who told Videogamer that the trilogy-capping sci-fi shooter is using almost every ounce of power from existing platforms.

"Crysis 3 is absolutely maxing out the consoles," Yerli said. "There is absolutely not even 1 percent left. No game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3 on these consoles, flat out. Most games are not even anywhere near Crysis 2 technically. I'm not talking about art style--art is subjective--but the pure fact of what we have been cramming in with Crysis 2 on Xbox [360] and PlayStation [3], I've yet to see a game do that still today."

Yerli further claimed that the Halo or Gears of War franchises do not even come close to what Crytek has been able to achieve with Crysis 3.

"Any day I will take a battle against Gears and Halo, whatever, the amount of data we put in and the detail level is far superior," Yerli said. "With Crysis 3, we're pushing that to another level, but the PC is just two levels beyond."

Crysis 3--due February 19--is a first-person shooter set in 2047 New York that casts players as Prophet, a supersoldier seeking vengeance. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
