CryEngine 3 Announced
Pushing graphics boundaries even further, Crytek has announced that the third iteration of its proprietary graphics engine CryEngine will debut at this month’s Game Developer Conference.
The engine will run on PS3, Xbox 360 and will be scaled for MMO and DX9/DX10 applications. It will also be next-gen ready with scalable computation and graphics for all major upcoming platforms. The engine will feature a sandbox level editor and a “What you see is what you play” tool designed by and for professional developers.
"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,” said Carl Jones, director of Business Development CryEngine. “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."
The GDC runs from March 23 to 27 in San Fransisco.
