Crytek has announced that they will be showcasing their new CryENGINE 3 at this year's Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco.
Interestingly, Crytek boasts that this is the first development platform for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PCs that's truly "next-gen" ready.
This is the engine Crytek has been perfecting for consoles and it's almost here. CryENGINE 3 will include scalable computations and graphics tools designed for developers that will enable them to work on all current and upcoming major platforms.
Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek, commented:
"With CryENGINE 3 we are delivering our best game development technology that enables our clients to achieve their vision on current and future platforms to develop games such as MMOs, action games and more. Our complete game engine solution enables realtime development, ensures teams are able to maximise their own creativity, saves budget and creates greater gaming experiences. Also with our solution developers can start working on their next generation games today."
"CryENGINE 3 is a revolutionary change from our previous PC-only engines - and we're applying a similar revolution to the service we provide to developers using the software to create extraordinary games. CryENGINE 3 will set the benchmark for complete game engine solutions in performance, and services to game engine licensees and their players. We've been preparing a long time for CryENGINE on consoles and we're confident that Crytek will again amaze developers at GDC," added Carl Jones, Director of Business Development.
Crytek recently acquired Nottingham developer Free Radical, renaming the studio 'Crytek UK.' The purchase was said to accelerate the company's console plans.
