Crytek dismisses rumors of having Microsoft’s next console
Also confirms Crysis 2 DX11 patch, to release shortly.
Crytek has denied rumors of the firm possessing Microsoft’s next Xbox console, to Gamespot today. Last week, rumors flew that the German team was working with a nex-gen Xbox console that used DX11 technology.
Crytek told Gamespot that it does “not have any next generation hardware from Microsoft” and has no idea when they plan to announce a new console.
At the moment, Crytek is focusing on “pushing the boundaries of what current technology can bring”, and is also working on its CryEngine “under-the-hood technology” which will be a “next generation engine for all consoles.”
The firm also confirmed that it plans to bring the much awaited DX11 patch for Crysis 2 “shortly”. They did not ponder over a release date, or even the rumored Timesplitter sequel.
