Today EA and Crytek announced Crysis 2 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The next instalment of Crysis will be the first game built on Crytek's CryENGINE 3 and will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. EA will publish the game. "The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio," said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. "This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it's the first title we are developing for consoles and the first title being built on CryENGINE 3. We are excited to have the support of EA Partners again as we work together to make the launch of Crysis 2 a huge event." http://www.gamezine.co.uk/news/crytek-announces-crysis-2-consoles-and-pc-$1300130.htm

I wonder how this will turn out. I have a feeling it will turn out bad for PC gamers and good for console gamers. But whatever we'll see...

Why are you looking for them to be extinct? Jealous of their top notch games and graphics?

Will be interesting to see if the 360 and PS3 versions can get close to Crysis on PC in terms of graphics. And this is not a E3 leak it's a official announcement. Hopefully it will be at the show later. I can see why PC owners would be upset at this news, but if there is one game they 're not going to dumb down on PC is Crysis, I wouldn't worry to much. Yet.

Did you see the Cry Engine 3 tech demo? It had a level of Crysis in it. Looked supremely bad.

If true: this will look terrible on current gen consoles, at least in comparisson to Crysis. As for the PC version it remains to be seen.

Crysis played perfectly fine with a controller.

At GDC, they explained CE3 can transfer the PC build to consoles in a matter of minutes. Most likely it transforms the full level into a cell-based build.

Unless the graphics are absolutely something special or I get some new hardware that I'd like to test out...I'll be passing. Good for those console only players though I guess, if they really want it.

exctinct might be roo much, but just look at them. "Oh no our precious Crysis is being shared with other!!" We havent heard what Crytek have in mind and yet people are already.. crying?! What about we waited for some more info about this announcement and maybe, just maybe Crytek will make the PC version superior compared to the Xbox/PS3 version. I doubt Crytek will *ruin* the game for all the graphic whores.

Also, this gives console users who bash Crysis saying "All graphics, no gameplay" to see how much of a great FPS it is after all. I'm hoping (as other users have said) that it's built on PC and ported to consoles.

Does this mean we now get to reference Crysis in every thread like the PC fanboys?

Even if its a refined crysis we have nothing to complain about. It will still be graphics king. This is good news for everyone. More sales will just mean better games later on.

People should remember that Crysis on PC is a rather linear game but has a lot of window dressing to give it an 'open' look

Glad to hear console gamers'll have a chance to experience Crysis, but I'm partly sad because of it because dumbing-down the PC version will definitely be imminent.

lololol crysis on consoles what now hermits lololol

Seriously, though, this could be bad. It's been said time and again that Crysis' gameplay in its current form is only possible on PC this gen. Crytek said it themselves.

Only because the gameplay is gonna be dumbed down for the console tards. This game won't be half the game that Crysis is. I guarantee it.

Why would the gameplay be dumbed down? The game's already pretty simple.

Because much of the game relies on retreating back and forth in dense jungle. The game is linear but that doesnt mean you have little choice

I don't understand how this is bad news at all. Now concole gamers get to experience the game as well if they don't have a great gaming PC. I see no reason why the PC version should suffer because of this.

Also this makes plenty of sense for Crytek. Releasing it multiplat means tons of $$$$$$$$.

This. My expectations have dropped; i can see it being enjoyable with the 'feel/look' of Crysis, but it won't be Crysis. I'm going to be bashed here, but Crysis wasn't all about the graphics although it played a large part in one's enjoyment of the game.

I don't think thats what you said. But I think it would be pretty hard to find a game less linear than crysis.

It's linear in that you are going from point A to B, but how you get there and how you complete your objectives as you go, are completely up to you.

And hermis said consoles couldn't run Crysis :lol:

Hermits got no Crown Jewel no more :lol:

Crysis coming to consoles EPIC PWNAGE

:cry: I can't bare to think of it. Oh well at least we got a new Crysis :D

Although I am stumped on how Crytek will pull this off consoles seriously lack RAM if this game will be like Far Cry 2 (respawning enemies and enviroment damage repaired) then it would suck. And this is wierd Crysis 2 but not the original? Hmm maybe Crytek will bundle the original and Warhead along with this.
