Love 3D? Hate it?
Well congratulations/too bad, because according to Crytek, 3D’s not going anywhere any time soon.
“Crysis on consoles for us is pretty much taking the ground that Crysis games will be 3D now and in the future. Console gamers haven’t seen [the original] Crysis yet and when we launch Crysis 2 it’s kind of like a re-launch of the franchise. We want to make sure people associate the Crysis brand with 3D gaming in the future,” Crytek boss Cervat Yerli replied to CVG when asked if Crysis 3, 4, 5, etc would feature 3D.
But wait, isn’t 3D just a dumb, expensive fad? Has Crytek hitched its wagon to a one-trick pony? Not in the slightest, said Yerli.
“I think that it will stay around. As soon as the first affordable 3DTVs arrive I think it’s a no-brainer at that point, everyone will adapt. Initially there will be a more hardcore audience. I don’t think every game will be 3D right away, but there will be some high-end production value games that will be 3D and will benefit from it,” he explained.
So yeah, is anyone in the market for a gently used entire second dimension? It looks like we won’t be needing it anymore.
