Future Crysis Games Will Utilize 3D

August 11, 2010Written by Zak Islam

Back when 3D was starting to become a prominent topic of discussion for developers, it was announced that Crysis 2 would be one of the first major games of 2010 to be compatible with 3D. That isn’t the case anymore as recently it has been delayed into 2011 where it competes with other 3D badboys such as Killzone 3. Still, Crysis developers Crytek has stated that the technology – which Sony want to be the leader of – is here to stay and they’ll be implementing it in their future Crysis titles.

The news was confirmed when Crytek boss Cervat Yerli discussed 3D technology with CVG, as Yerli said:

“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. But we also want to make sure that it’s for a reason – we want to turn the TV as well as the monitor in to a window into a new world. Once people play in 3D the way we’ve demonstrated, I don’t think you’ll want to not play in 3D ever again.”

Multiple analysts as well as gamers in general have been complaining about 3D technology saying that it’ll undoubtedly become a ‘fad’. Yerli had this to say on if the tech would become a fad in theĀ  future:

“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.”

While we’re on the topic of 3D, the Crytek boss had commented on how Crysis 2’s 3D technology is more pleasing than Killzone 3. I’m sure many of you will beg to differ. The Crysis 2 Collector’s Edition was recently detailed. The second installment in the Crysis franchise – which Crytek promises to feature the most breathtaking graphics, AI and gameplay ever – will be releasing sometime in March, 2011.
