CryEngine 3 “Runs Beautifully” On Wii U

Crytek has announced that a respected developer is currently creating a Wii U game which utilises the company’s CryEngine 3. Crytek says that it will be showing the unannounced Wii U game soon. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli also revealed that Wii U handles CryEngine 3 beautifully.

“My opinion of the Wii U is very high. It’s just that we didn’t have a business case unfortunately that justifies us making a game for it.

“It doesn’t mean that CryEngine 3 doesn’t run on Wii U – it actually runs beautifully. In fact, there actually is a game in development from a respected developer that we will be announcing. I’ve seen the game running and it looks really great.”

  1. I’m actually surprised to hear Crytek saying positive things about the Wii U now. Hope this means more third party 8th gen games. But mainly I hope for TimeSplitters 4 on Wii U.

    2. If you actually read the source, he cites it as “minimum” on par as a 360.

      Which is a telling sign that this is not a significant leap over the current generation if there isn’t a straight answer from them.

      1. Which so far the majority of sites are comparing it to.

        This console is not going to be doing anything impressive in the hard specs. It’ll last a year at best looking better than what’s available now, and promptly get crushed upon the advent of true next gen devices.

        Also, this engine runs on PS3 and 360 as well, so this is not impressing me in the slightest.

      2. Oh, wow. You have opinions on how to measure time. Are you a total idiot or what? Even if it was 16 bit, the Wii U would be next gen. It came after the current gen. Don’t even try to argue that something can be ‘true next gen’ by also being the same gen.

      3. the “minimum” of the 360 when it launched was barely a little better than the gamecube, so whats your point?

        Like

      4. My point is so far the specs of the console have yet to have been mentioned to be a significant leap over the current generation. And that is a fact. If it was otherwise, developers would be salivating at the mere throught of it.

        Even the underclocked dev kit is actually pretty mediocre. With confirmed specs available in a particular NeoGAF thread.

        Have fun with your lack of tessellation on a probably 4xxx series card. This is assuming Nintendo doesn’t gimp it to hell.

      5. Dude come on he’s saying that the wii u at min is producing the same quality as the x box at it’s maximum. You can bash Nintendo all you w ant but I have a funny feeling that were going to see a game that kills Microsoft and Sony. Remember if you turn off the game pad you can play in 1080p at 60fps.

      7. did you even see the assassins creed 3 gameplay on the wiiu? that game had a lot of tessellation going on. and just the statement “even the UNDERCLOCKED devkits were mediocre” you do know what underclocked means right?

      9. um you obviously dont when you act loike “even underclock dev kits were powerfull” and underclocked means that its not very powerful anyway…and yes there was tessellation in the assassins creed 3 demo on wiiu and ubisoft themselves confirmed it to be running at 60fps at 1080p. and just so you know, tessellation is the natural bending of an object, so what you saw in the demo when he walked through the sheet or even the ends of his cloak while he was walking, that was tessellation you retard. seriously stop raging about thing you have no clue about.

      13. Yes I agree this isn’t super impressive but I think people are gonna be fairly disapointed when the next gen isn’t gonna be that much better then the current one. I doubt the Wii U will be left out this time. Effects and resolution will likely be lowered to accomidate the system. I really doubt the next Sony or Microsoft system will retail more then 299 or maybe 399. What exactly do you expect to come from something that price?

      14. Sony just came out and said they won’t release PS4 if it wasn’t able to be a significant leap. If that doesn’t scream BEAST I don’t know what the hell does anymore.

        One down, MS to go. And with Epic at their side, that beaten to death fanboy wishful thinking is looking grim.

      15. I’m no fanboy I own all 3 consoles I simply buy/ play which ever is best on whatever platform. I dont see how anything I said sounded fanboy at all. Sony can say what it wants but I doubt it’ll retail for more then what I said. Again how much you think they’re gonna accomplish with a probable launch of 299-399? I doubt they will go the way they did with the ps3 with ps4. When I see a price and something to back it up that’s something else but I haven’t come across anything about ps4 other then its coming at some point. Frankly I’m buying a ps4 and a Wii U so it doesn’t matter to me.

      16. How did I know your faggot-ass would be here? Seriously, you’re such loser, brah. The man himself is telling you that it’s a leap over current gen, better than a 360 on it’s worst day, and says he doesn’t get why people are saying it’s not next-gen. And for retards like you to honestly believe that anything close to the real CryEngine 3 has been running on PS360 “since 2009”, just goes to show how stupid you are. Also, of course he is going to compare it to current gen, what the fuck else would he compare it to? All of these reports about it only being as powerful as a 360 are either old, from “Anonymous” sources, or most of all, from speculation. E3 has passed, and NOTHING has shown that the Wii U isn’t a next-gen system. Lets put it this way retard, launch games on Wii U look better than games that took 6 years to get looking like they do now on PS360. Every major company and their mother are saying that the Wii U is a powerful machine, and what do you have to say? A whole lot of speculation and no facts.
