Crytek Boss Says Next-Gen Games Won’t Look Better Than Crysis 3

Crytek boss Cevat Yerli doesn’t believe that the next-generation of games will be too different from what the upcoming Crysis 3 will have to offer—at least in terms of graphical fidelity.

Yerli made his comments in a recent interview with CVG, where he expressed his opinion that most launch titles for next-gen platforms wouldn’t look any better than Crytek’s upcoming game, which is slated for release this month.

“Crytek’s projects generally will be way above what we’ve achieved on the existing consoles,” he said. “I actually think people will be astonished that next-gen launch titles from other companies might not be much different from Crysis 3.”

Yerli went on to praise Crysis 3 for its unique visual identity. “[It's] a world that hasn’t been done before, that kind of depiction, the quality and level of immersion,” he said. “I think no game has ever done that kind of setting, it’s a visual spectacle.”

Crysis 3 will be out on the 19th for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There are no plans to release the game on the Wii U.

Who cares about graphics? Art direction is a million times more important.

I care about graphics also, but I think the majority of these game developers don’t want to or have the ability to make games that are state of the art since its more of a sink hole then a money maker.

Not all consumers want to spend a lot of money to upgrade there pc’s and the developers don’t want to spend money on graphics when they know the majority of there players will never experience the game with max settings anyways.

But we are at a point where cheap hardware has surpassed current gen graphics but it depends on how much farther games like crysis 3 push the limits.

For me I max my graphics on all the games I play except for Anti-aliasing since that drops the frame rate too low, even with a 4.5ghz quad core 8 gigs of ram and 560 ti in sli format still isn’t enough for 16* settings which is a real shame. I think I’ll buy a new graphics card in about 6 months like that geforce titan graphics card.

There are no plans to release the game on the Wii U. Lol i wonder why…

What is he going on about? I still can’t run Crysis 1 on max on my PC, and that game looks better than anything on consoles nowadays…

Also I doubt this game is gonna be more immersive than the first one. Expect linear gameplay with lots of *BOOM* EXPLOSIONS IN YOUR FACE, turret set pieces. And a crossbow, because nothing says futuristic warfare as much as a crossbow. Yeah.
