Crytek: Crysis 3 is ‘maxing out’ current gen

Crytek Crysis 3 is 'maxing out' current gen

Crysis 3 will be one of the most technically competent titles ever released on current-generation consoles.

That’s according to studio CEO Cevat Yerli, who told Videogamer that the trilogy-capping sci-fi shooter is using almost every ounce of power from existing platforms.

“Crysis 3 is absolutely maxing out the consoles,” Yerli said. “There is absolutely not even 1 percent left. No game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3 on these consoles, flat out.

Most games are not even anywhere near Crysis 2 technically. I’m not talking about art style–art is subjective–but the pure fact of what we have been cramming in with Crysis 2 on Xbox [360] and PlayStation [3], I’ve yet to see a game do that still today.”

Yerli further claimed that the Halo or Gears of War franchises do not even come close to what Crytek has been able to achieve with Crysis 3.
