Crytek has announced that its CryEngine 3 technology is “already primed for Xbox One,” and the firm is “equipped to start creating software for the system now.”

Crytek recently became an officially licensed provider of middleware and tools for Xbox One, and will support the platform as well as equipping CryEngine 3 licensees with the “advanced toolset required to achieve their own games for the system.”

“We offered assurances over two years ago that CryEngine 3 was ready for the next generation of consoles, and time has revealed that promise to be true,” said Carl Jones. “As developers begin to create new games for Xbox One, our technology and unparalleled support will ensure CryEngine 3 users remain at the forefront of the industry now and well into the future.”

Crytek had nothing to announce in the press release regarding Ryse, so expect that to be shown or talked about at E3.
