Console version of Crysis shown on the Xbox 360?

By on March 5, 2008, 12:34 PM
For quite a while now there have been rumors floating across the web about an upcoming release of Crysis on the PS3. The developer, Crytek, is supposedly making the game more like a sequel to Crysis rather than a straight port, with 50% new content compared to the PC version – a “Crysis 1.5” of sorts.

Though rumors of a console version of Crysis are nothing new, one site is claiming that the console version of Crysis will not be exclusive to the Sony PS3, and that the game was actually showcased running on the Xbox 360 behind closed doors at GDC 2008. The news isn’t all that surprising since the company did show their CryENGINE 2 engine working on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at the conference.

There has been no official announcement made regarding Crysis for any type of home console, though, so we will just have to wait and see. In any case, with Crysis bringing even some of the highest-end PCs right to their knees, it should be interesting to see how it turns out on the less-powerful consoles.
