It’s fair to say that Crysis 3 is up there with some of the most anticipated games of 2013. Whether you enjoy the series for its focus on cutting edge graphics with each release, you can bet that Crysis 3 is going to be one of the most visually impressive games to still be releasing on current gen consoles such as the Xbox 360 and PS3. Naturally Crytek want to make a point about this and their CEO has gone on record to say that Crysis 3 is currently maxing out consoles and is easily going to be the best looking game ever seen on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
That is a bold statement to make, especially when you consider other visually impressive games such as The Last of Us and Final Fantasy 14 that are both on the way to the PS3 in 2013. Crysis 2 was obviously a good looking game in its own right, but publicly stating that Crysis 3 is going to be the best ever seen on Xbox 360 and PS3 – that is surely worth a closer look.
Cevat Yerli is the CEO of Crytek and he hasn’t shied away in the past about bigging up the company’s Crysis portfolio. The first Crysis game on PC was considered a benchmark for how good PC games can look like, but it is also worth noting that not everyone saw Crysis 2 on console in the same shining light.
Still though, Crysis 3 is on course for a release in the first quarter of 2013 and Yerli has revealed that the game is currently maxing out the PS3 and Xbox 360, with ‘not even 1%’ left to utilize. He added that Crysis 3 is also going to be the best looking game ever technically, to come out on current consoles and that the game is even next-gen ready right now.
He also felt the need to single out Halo and Gears of War, to inform us that the data level in Crysis 3 is going to be far superior than these games. We hear a lot of talk about GTA V and The Last of Us being the two stand out games of 2013, but do you think Crysis 3 deserves an honorable mention as well?
Do you agree with Cevat that the game is on course to be the best we’ve ever seen on PS3 and Xbox 360? We have a feeling that other developers will disagree with this claim, but let’s see. Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition.
