Crytek’s new 360 exclusive to push the console “to it’s limits”

Posted By | On 18th, Jan. 2011

Crytek, the minds behind the Far Cry series and Crysis, have a new Xbox 360 exclusive in the pipe line Codename: Kingdoms. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has claimed that the new game will push Microsoft’s hardware “to its limits” and that the game will offer gamers “a genuinely new” interactive entertainment experience.

We have little information on the new project but Yerli told CVG that “I can’t really talk about that at the moment, maybe at E3, maybe before, I don’t know yet.” When asked about what kind of genre Crytek would be aiming for in future Yerli replied that “As a company we can’t just make shooters, we need to breed genuinely new forms of entertainment and interactive experiences, and I think Kingdoms is a new interactive entertainment experience.

“Working with Microsoft allows us to do something really new and awesome from our perspective, and from gamers’ perspective I think they’ll have a very different experience with Kingdoms.”

He also added that “We’re looking at new challenges for the company and thinking about what experiences and types of games people may want to play. Whatever it is, we will try to do. The genre may not even exist yet for that matter, so what we’re keen on is games that offer new experiences for every moment the gamer plays. This has been at the core of the evolution of new IPs at all of our studios.”

Concerning the power of the 360 Yerli stated that “”… I think when we put Crysis 2 out we will show a level that is, multiplatform-wise, maxing out, but we will look into with Microsoft how Kingdoms can push the Xbox 360 110 percent, to its limits.

“When you’re spending a multimillion budget only on the Xbox 360, that team will be able to crank out the last two or three percent left in the console. But I think that two or three percent will make the difference potentially between day and night that you cannot afford if you go multiplatform.”

Will that two or three percent make all the difference? Only time will tell as we get more information on Codename: Kingdoms

Thanks to CVG for the info
