Crytek: Crysis 2 "Similar" On PlayStation 3 And Xbox 360
Crytek has recently revealed that Crysis 2 will be headed to consoles in addition to the PC, and this has sparked a rash of discussion and questions.
To help clear up some of the ensuing confusion, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli confirmed that this hotly anticipated sequel will be almost identical on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the PC version should be the top performer. This isn't much of a surprise, considering the developer's past, but perhaps PS3 owners should take solace in the fact that it'll be very similar to the 360 version. After all, the 360 most closely resembles a PC and one would have to assume that bringing a game like Crysis 2 to the PS3 might pose some new problems. But apparently, we needn't worry. Also, according to a recent interview with Develop, Yerli said he's not trying to prove which of the consoles is more powerful. This isn't about tapping into each system's power; it's about appealing to the widest audience possible with Crysis 2. Many say that the CryENGINE 3 will push both consoles to their limits but clearly, that's not Crytek's intent...the PS3 fans are out there right now, saying, "if you'd only use the PS3, it could excel!" Yeah, well, we'll never know.
Lastly, Yerli confirmed that over 150 people are currently working on Crysis 2, which has been in development for over two years. When we get a release date, you'll know not long afterward.
