CryEngine 3 to support PS4 in next-gen, Crytek says

  • Posted June 8th, 2013 at 22:16 EDT by Steve Chaffin

 Developer Crytek has established over the years a reputation for pushing hardware to its limits in regard to visual performance. With each installation to the Crysis series raising the bar for graphical standards, it is no wonder that Crytek has revealed that the engine will be supported by Sony's PlayStation 4 when it releases later this year.

While little more is known, such as who will be taking advantage of the superb engine, the similarities in hardware architecture amongst the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC make it easier than ever for developers to use the engine for the creation of multi-platform titles. More regarding Crytek's, and CryEngine 3's, role with the PlayStation 4 may be revealed next week at E3.
