The spectacular demo dell'Unreal Engine 4 shown by Epic Games at E3 2012 has surprised everyone ... Crytek apart.
The German team, in fact, argues that their engine, CryEngine 3, is equally powerful and ready for the next generation of gaming platforms. "All I can say is that the quality of CryEngine 3 is already as the Unreal Engine 4," said Cevat Yerli, Crytek founder, during an interview with VentureBeat. "It 's available for three years now: you can go back three years and watch the videos shown at GDC.
What we have is basically what the Unreal Engine 4 has now shown, and what other teams are trying to offer. we have not yet discovered all our cards, in fact. we have already said, the CryEngine 3 is a motor 'nextgen ready' since its inception three years ago. "
Yerli has also provided ample details:
"If I think of what people call 'nextgen technology today', well ', is what we worked three years ago. Had over powerful particle effects, rendering from the GPU, all these things. The deferred shading, the tessellation since the release of Crysis 2, DirectX 11. We just do not have shown with the tech demo, but we released games that used these technologies. "
