The highly anticipated first-person shooter Crysis could technically appear on either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, said developer Crytek, who stated that the firm would review possibilities once the game hits shelves for the PC this September.
Asked on whether or not he thought the game was possible on consoles, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told UK publication PC Gamer, "Theoretically, anything could run anywhere”, adding, "Crysis could be on the 360 or PS3".
While conceding the game was possible on other formats, Yerli added that the company would first evaluate oppertunities before reaching any decision; As such, gamers will have to wait until after the game is released for any further developments. "It requires optimisation, that's what we've always communicated", he explained. "What you would not do is make Crysis on PS3, 360 and PC for a single shipping date, because we would lose the quality focus. "So I say, 'First PC version, then we'll see what happens'”.
Despite this, Yerli was keen to emphasis that there are currently no plans to release the game on either the 360 or PS3: "...it's a matter of how far we can take each platform" and Crytek would not go to a platform unless it could make the game "number one there"”, he said.
