Rumor Mill: Crysis Coming to 360 in November?

Crysis 360 Listing Thumb


First off, neither Crytek nor EA have (yet) officially stated that a 360 version (or PS3 for that matter) of Crysis is being developed. In fact, the closest hint to such a merger we’ve been alluded to was given here. Either way, I think it would be presumptuous to pass off CryENGINE2 as being PC only. I’d almost bet that Crytek is diligently working (as we speak) at getting some form of the engine working on the 360 and PS3 (Crysis isn’t going to be the only game using the engine). Only time will tell if we will ever see Crysis making it onto the consoles. So until then, we speculate.

With that said, it’s all fun and games to speculate such things. Which is why one forum goer over at the inCrysis forums decided to share a recent find with the Crysis community there. It seems an electronic store (link here) over in Austria has among its various listings (which I preserved above) of Crysis for PC a couple of listings of Crysis for the Xbox 360. The most interesting detail to note here is the release date given for those: November 20, 2008. I can’t say I’ve ever heard of this particular online retailer much less any clue to their reputation. If it’s truly a leak of some kind, then it’s one that deserves some refuting.

Then again, November is still quite a ways off.

It’s already a known fact that CryEngine 2 is up and running on the PS3 and 360. It’s a multiplatform engine. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has said as much on numerous occasions.

I do recall he said that the 360 at least, “wasn’t capable” of running Crysis. Ah, how the allure of more money changes things.

It would be very cool if this were true then I and every other person who can’t afford to take out a loan to buy the hardware neccessary to play Crysis on my PC, can enjoy playing it on the 360….Here’s to hoping this comes true…..w00t!!!!

The 360 gaining another FPS? No sale for me. Too many in the market and I simply don’t care enough for graphics, not to mention the mediocre reviews it has received that hardly cry “buy me!”.

Mediocre reviews? Crysis has been getting in the upper and lower 9′s around most places. lol

I bought it on the PC and its pretty average imo although that might be because its been released shortly after Bioshock and COD4 which are on another level altogether. It looks absolutely incredible and I’m loving messing around with the sandbox editor but I cant imagine anyone getting too exited by this on consoles given that the graphics wont be as good on a 360 or PS3.

Crytek has already made several job adds for developing the CryEngine 2 motor for PS3. I don’t recall a 360 add, but I do believe it will also be developed.
