Speaking to Gamespot, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli’s predicted that the next console round will bring a graphical “renaissance”.

“The next graphics breakthrough will come in 2011/12, especially because it will be linked to next-generation consoles,” said the exec.

“I think the PlayStation 4, or the Xbox 720, and the PC generation that equals that will see a renaissance kicking in that will allow us to effectively deliver visuals that will rival offline CGI productions right now. With that, you’ll see a variety of visual styles and identities, as well as techniques used to make more creative images than we have seen today.”
