There’s been a lot of debate about when we’ll see the next set of home consoles. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo all have different ideas about when they’ll put out their new systems, but Crytek head Cevat Yerli seems to have his own.
He told CVG, “For some reason my gut feeling is still that we’ll see a new [console] generation in 2012, 2013. Factually spoken, it looks like I’m going [to] be wrong, but my gut feeling is that there’s going to be a new one because it’s really getting old and tight in this space.”
Yerli is very much working on the idea that a console needs to be “maxed out” before everyone moves on. It’s his team’s aim to do just that with their 360 exclusive, Kingdoms. Crytek are currently prepping Crysis 2 for launch.
