Crytek’s UK studio has revealed it is contributing “some critical elements” to the highly-anticipated Crysis 2. Crytek UK MD Karl Hilton told Develop that the studio is currently working on the console versions of the shooter sequel, although it is not simply porting the game.“We have a lot of history with first-person-shooters, action-adventure games and multiplayer gaming, particularly on consoles, so we are contributing in all of these areas,” he said. “I know Crytek itself was a PC-based company before, but they are going to increasingly play a major role in the console space, and we’re going to be a big part of that.”Crysis 2 will be the first game in the series to appear on consoles and the company CEO Cevat Yerli stressed that a recent breakthrough in the CryEngine 3 (which the game is built upon) means the game will not be compromised.We can’t wait to see what the CryEngine 3 can do on consoles.
