Crysis 2 Goes Multi-Platform


Posted June 1, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Crytek LogoCrytek and Electronic Arts have apparently re-thought their Crysis release strategy for the sequel. Rather than being PC only, and limited to people who own computers powered by the most advanced graphics cards and processors, Crysis 2 will be out on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 video game consoles as well as PCs. That means everyone will be able to check out the game, as opposed to a few power-PC gamers out there.

“The development of Crysis 2 marks a major stepping stone for our studio,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek, in a statement. “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.”

No word yet on a release date or a more detailed game description.

While the idea of being able to play the next Crysis is great for a console gamer like myself, I have to wonder if the game won't ultimately suffer because of the constraints imposed upon it by the relatively weak hardware of both systems. Hopefully a balance can be achieved between the game's beefed-up graphics and gameplay and the platforms it can be played on. So, how will you play Crysis 2: PC, PS3 or 360?
