As most of you will be aware, both Halo Reach and Crysis 2 are expected to be released towards the end of the year. EA has already started to make things ‘interesting’ by stating that their title will be a ‘Halo Killer’.
When speaking in a recent interview with Industry Gamers, EA Games label president Frank Gibeau had this to say when talking about both titles:
“We were trying to craft a Halo-killer, you know a product that would squarely go after what Bungie built with our partners at Crytek. So the Crysis 2 product is spectacular, very high-end, and is going to be a multi-year franchise.”
He also mentioned that EA now have a stellar developer lineup, with developer studios such as Crytek, DICE, Epic and now Respawn Entertainment.
While most of you are currently enjoying the multiplayer beta for Halo Reach, which game do you think will come out on top?
You could argue that Crysis 2 just sets the standard for console graphics and Halo Reach will be a more complete package, but I have a feeling that it will be a very close affair between the two.
