CryENGINE 3 Updated, Crysis 3 Announced 60

zacharye writes "The next-generation Xbox and PlayStation consoles currently being developed by Microsoft and Sony will make the disparity between console and mobile gaming even more vast, adding more fluid animation support and a number of additional enhancements that will make video games more realistic than ever. But even when confined to the capabilities present in today's home consoles, new video game engines show us just how amazing gaming will be moving forward. Ctytek, the lab behind the popular Crysis franchise, recently released the CryENGINE 3 SDK 3.4.0 DX11 update for developers, along with a quick reel to highlight some of the engine's capabilities." Crysis 3 has also been officially confirmed. They're aiming for a Spring 2013 release date, and the game will be set within a dome in New York City that contains an 'urban rainforest.'

    That wasn't a Crytek game. It was made by Ubisoft Montreal. So completely different dev team, writers, and so on, hence totally different gameplay. The engine was based on Cryengine, but heavily modified.

    So their games are good only when someone else develops them :).

Computer programmers do it byte by byte.
