CryEngine 2 Powering MMORPG

XL Games today announced that they have licensed CryEngine 2 for use in their newest MMORPG. Powering the upcoming Crysis shooter, the engine is capable of rendering dense tropical jungles and offers advanced physics. The engine has also been licensed by other developers for use in their titles.

“We are very excited to be working with the Crytek team again” says Vice President and Technical Director Patrick Doane. “We previously had a lot of success using their ground breaking CryENGINE 1 technology while at NCSoft for AION, and after seeing what it could do in the early previews of Crysis, we just knew we wanted to continue to work with their great new tools and engine”.

No information on the game itself was mentioned though.
