Crysis 3 will require all but "less than 1%" of console horsepower

Crytek CEO on maxing out current-gen consoles

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli says Crysis 3 will max out the capabilities of both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.


During an interview with Videogamer (via VG 24/7), Yerli claimed Crysis 3 will be the most technically demanding title to reach current generation consoles.

"Crysis 3 is absolutely maxing out the consoles," he said. "There is absolutely not even 1 percent left."

Yerli went on to say that even Crysis 2 proved more demanding than most of the competition. "No game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3 on these consoles, flat out. Most games are not even anywhere near Crysis 2 technically.

"I'm not talking about art style - art is subjective - but the pure fact of what we have been cramming in with Crysis 2 on Xbox and PlayStation, I've yet to see a game do that still today."

Crysis 3 will release on February 19 in US and February 22 in Europe, it was reported last week.
