Crysis 3 will be in 3D - Crytek

Technology is here to stay, says studio

Crytek has pledged that all future titles in the Crysis universe will be playable in 3D.

The studio revealed at E3 in June that the stunning Crysis 2 will be playable in 3D on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

The FPS was due for release later this year but has been pushed back by publisher EA into the first quarter of 2011.

When CVG asked Crytek boss Cervat Yerli if 3D was an experiment or if we'd see the technoogy implemented in Crysis 3, 4 and 5 in future, he said:

"Crysis on consoles for us is pretty much taking the ground that Crysis games will be 3D now and in the future," he said. "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."

When asked if he thought there was any risk that 3D gaming could become a 'fad', Yerli added:

"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."
