“The bow was something that just fit really well into the “hunter” theme we were focusing on in Crysis 3.”
People were wondering whether Crytek was really going to use the PC as a base for Crysis 3 and then port it to the consoles. The answer is no. All versions are being simultaneously developed at Crytek just like Crysis 2. The PC version is capable of much more as Crytek have shown with the post-release patches for Crysis 2.
“Crysis 3 is being developed simultaneously on PC, Xbox, and PS3. The development of Crysis 2 put us in a good position and taught us a lot of lessons, so that we are now able to do this reliably and effectively,” producer Mike Read told Digital Trends.
He also revealed some information on the hunter bow. “The bow was something that just fit really well into the “hunter” theme we were focusing on in Crysis 3. We wanted to offer a weapon that provided more tactical depth by offering different ammunition types for different gameplay purposes,” he said.
“We combined this with our bow design and got an immensely powerful and versatile weapon for the player that is so satisfying and rewarding to use, that we simply had to push it further and put it at the center of the gunplay in Crysis 3.”
