Crytek: “As a company we can’t just make shooters,” says Yerli

Tuesday, 15th February 2011 17:01 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Crytek head Cevat Yerli has said the firm is looking at developing different genres other than shooters.

Speaking in an interview with CVG, Yerli said Crytek is open to making new experiences for players, starting with Kingdoms, it’s game currently in development for Microsoft.

“As a company we can’t just make shooters, we need to breed genuinely new forms of entertainment and interactive experiences, and I think Kingdoms is a new interactive entertainment experience,” he said. “Working with Microsoft allows us to do something really new and awesome from our perspective, and from gamers’ perspective I think they’ll have a very different experience with Kingdoms.

“We’re looking at new challenges for the company and thinking about what experiences and types of games people may want to play. Whatever it is, we will try to do. The genre may not even exist yet for that matter, so what we’re keen on is games that offer new experiences for every moment the gamer plays.

“This has been at the core of the evolution of new IPs at all of our studios.”

Crytek’s Crysis 2 is out March 22 in the US and March 25 in the UK for PC, 360 and PS3.

    It will be hillarious if CRYTEK will make mindblowing title (codename Kingdoms) for XBOX 360 that will blow away God Of War III and some playstation games by graphics.

    :D This will be madness.

    @2 I think it little bit silly( or stupid) to make xbox exlusive game when Crysis 2 is realising for PS3 and PC.I think the sales of Crysis 2 for PC should decide if Kindoms are going to come on PC.
    What you think Erth?

    @5 Fable 3 is a Microsoft exclusive title too and it’s coming to PC.

    @Megatron, but they are doing it because they support PC (well, at least they try). Fable 3 is their first party title (although Fable 2 is not on PC), not to mention about Gears Of War 2, Forza 3,4 and other games.

    #2, nonsense, Xbox wont have better graphics then PS3. They would have to make a new xbox to have better graphics, then PS4 will do the same, never ending battle.

    @maximum Payne.. if remedy knew that they had a small team for both versions of alan wake then why did they announce that both versions of alan wake(PC and the 360) were going to be released from the start. You know its very stupid assumption for a company to start of a project they know that they can’t, this is just a LAME reason and it is not the truth.why did’nt they tell us about the cancellation of the PC version before and why very near the Release date Makes you think so don’t try to defend Remedy for every thing.They had a very great and passionate PC fanbase and now because of their Dispicable behaivior its all gone down to the drain..

    @NoxNoctisUmbra, can i dissapoint you? Xbox 360 have next generation videocard (LOL) i mean, compared to old PS3′s Geforce G70 series which is a stripped version of Geforce 7800.

    So, there are still potential to beat that weak direct X9 console that can’t do proper anti aliasing in MOST of the games, except for first party titles where they use Cell processor.

    @13 They were working on sandbox game.Alan Wake was ment to be sandbox game.When microsoft want to make a xbox deal.I think they didn’t have time and money to polish game as a sandbox so they cut it.I think the was making primarily as PC title and then after 3-4 mounth they would realise for Xbox.But we don’t for sure what was going on.

    @2: Jesus, just how old are you anyway? You can’t be older than 13 and be this stupid, this is just extreme. Not one, not even one comment from you where you’re not trolling, you ugly cunt.

    Why the fuck are you even talking about GoW III? Did you read the article at all? They are trying to do something new here. How the hell are they going to manage that if they copying GoW III? Why are you even so obsessed with graphics? Can you, just once in your life stop sounding like a complete troll and start talking like a human being with an actual brain?

    I’d want to know what Black Sea is working on (they got bought out by Crytek). Knights of Honor was incredibly awesome, would love to see it remade with high-tech visuals. Strategy games pls, Crytek.
