Crytek is the mastermind studio behind Far Cry 3 and the Crysis series. Crytek runs most of their games on their in-house developed engine: CryENGINE. Other games can also buy the rights to use the engine in their games. CryENGINE has become one of the industry's most popular tools, and it seems that will carry over into the next generation.
Carl Jones, Director of Global Business Development at Crytek, has stated the following.
“Our CryENGINE technology has always provided head-turning results across platforms. By supporting developers as they build on the future for PlayStation 4, we are cementing our position at the forefront of the industry and helping others to create the best games they can in this exciting period of transition.”
Sony is going to get continued support from Crytek as they transition into the PlayStation 4. This is good news for console gamers who love spectacular graphics. I can't wait to see the gorgeous settings the CryENGINE and next generation hardware can produce.
