E3 2009: Crytek Announces Crysis 2 For PC, 360 & PS3

leave a comment »

Using the new CryEngine3 tech, Crytek and EA have announced that Crysis 2 will be hitting console formats as well as the PC in 2010.

Now this is a quite a revelation, as the first game to use this new tech I had assumed would have been a conversion of the original Crysis or a brand new IP; *not* a sequel to Crysis.

Colour me surprised. The CEO and President of Crytek Cevat Yerli had the following to say about the news:

“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.”

David DeMartini, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA partners also had this to say regarding the announcement:

“Nothing speaks more to the success of the EA Partners program than when a studio the calibre of Crytek continues to work with us,” said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA Partners. Crytek is already one of the elite PC development studios in the world and we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with them in bringing their award-winning technology and gameplay to more platforms and a wider audience with Crysis 2.”

There will be more on this suprise announcement at E3, whereby our hungry retinas shall hopefully have some Crysis 2 eye candy with which to appease them.
