Crytek has boasted that no other current game engine has the grunt to power a game like Crysis 2, and that CryEngine 3 could be used to build “pretty much any other game” from the studio’s competitors.
Despite claims that the company has “never cared about what competitors do”, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told CVG that “any other game that has been shipped with out competitors’ engines could have been done with the Crytek engine.”
Responding positively on the question of whether CryEngine 3 can beat Epic Games’ upcoming Unreal Engine 4, Yerli added that none of Crytek’s rivals could produce Crysis 2.
“I just think that our competitors’ engines couldn’t deliver Crysis 2,” he said. “Crysis 2, from a gameplay and entertainment perspective, just demands so much more.
“… Whether our engine is better or not is something to be judged by the people who use the engine, but I can say that Crysis 2 wouldn’t have been possible with any other engine.”
