Crytek: "PC players fundamentally only want Crysis to be on PC"

Crytek's Rasmus Højengaard has assured the PC version of Crysis 3 will ship with platform-specific graphical features, saying the IP's PC community is always keen to keep Crysis games away from consoles.

Speaking to Spong, Højengaard joked about the aftermath of Crysis's PC legacy.

"PC players, fundamentally only want Crysis to be on PC, right? And, you know, that’s kind of understandable when you consider how the original game - and even Crytek itself - started out," he said.

"But, we’re definitely pushing this game a lot from a visual standpoint, and for sure there’s going to be visual goodies in it that you can only get if you have a super-high-end PC.

"At the same time, we want to ensure if you don’t have a super-high-end PC, the game will still look amazing. On top of that, we want to make sure the experience is not different from platform to platform."

No mention was made of the graphical features specific to the PC version of Crysis 3.

The original Crysis was a PC-only release in 2007, but has since been put out on 360 and PS3 via XBLA and PSN.

Crysis 2, released in 2011 for PC, 360 and PS3, leading some PC zealots to complain about treachery.

Crysis 3 will release next year. It was announced last month. Watch a gameplay trailer here.
