Crysis 2 Confirmed For Consoles
There was much talk about Crysis possibly coming to consoles, but you needn't worry about that any longer.
According to GameZine, Crysis 2 has been confirmed for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. It will be the very first game built utilizing the CryENGINE 3 and EA is set to publish the promising title. You may remember that Crytek recently picked up the struggling developer Free Radical (responsible for the likes of Haze and the TimeSplitters series), so perhaps that was a small indication of the studio's desire to include consoles in their future projects. Said Cevat Yerli, Crytek CEO:
"The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio. 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."
At this point, we're starting to question the need for PC gaming any longer. Don't take that too seriously, PC fans, we're just acknowledging the drastic shift in the gaming industry in the past decade and at this point, very few games left are "better" on the PC platform. How will Crysis 2 look and play on consoles? We're willing to bet...every bit as good as it looks and plays on the PC.
