Crytek Denies Rumors of New Xbox Development
After rumors began circulating earlier this week that Crytek had access to Microsoft’s successor to the Xbox 360, the developer has decided to set the record straight.
Relating to the recent rumours, Crytek do not have any next generation hardware from Microsoft, nor do we know when Microsoft may announce future hardware or what that hardware will entail. Crytek are working at pushing the boundaries of what current technology can bring, including our focus on DX11 which will be released shortly as an update for Crysis 2, and we believe this work, added to our estimations of what the new hardware will provide, set up CryENGINE as a next generation engine for all consoles.
Various publications had reported that Microsoft is planning on showing off a new Xbox console at next year’s E3 Expo, with rumors saying that Crytek, the Crysis 2 developer was working on TimeSplitters 4 for the system.
