EA and Crytek have announced Crysis 2 which will hit the PC, 360 and PS3 and is powered by the new CRYEngine 3 which has been developed with current generation of *real* consoles in mind (because, face it, the Wii just wouldn’t cut it).
“The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. “This is not only the next game in the Crysis franchise, it’s the first title we are developing for consoles and the first title being built on CryENGINE 3. We are excited to have the support of EA Partners again as we work together to make the launch of Crysis 2 a huge event.”
“Nothing speaks more to the success of the EA Partners program than when a studio the caliber of Crytek continues to work with us,” said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA Partners. “Crytek is already one of the elite PC development studios in the world and we are excited to have the opportunity to partner with them in bringing their award-winning technology and gameplay to more platforms and a wider audience with Crysis 2.”
There’s not much else to note yet, but i’d imagine we’ll be seeing more of this as E3 goes on.
