Rumor Mill: Crysis Coming to 360 in November?
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.
