Crytek Denies Knowledge of an Xbox 360 Successor

Posted by at 3:26 pm on June 17, 2011

Contrary to a rumors earlier this week, Crytek claims it doesn’t have any details on the successor to the Xbox 360 or when it will be announced. A source within Crytek had reportedly indicated Microsoft’s new system would be revealed in the next year, “likely” at E3 2012.

“Relating to the recent rumours, Crytek do not have any next generation hardware from Microsoft, nor do we know when Microsoft may announce future hardware or what that hardware will entail,” a statement from the company reads.

The source also said Crytek U.K. (formerly Free Radical Design) was working on a CryEngine 3-powered TimeSplitters 4. That particular point wasn’t addressed by Crytek, which instead highlighted what it’s already known to be working on.

“Crytek are working at pushing the boundaries of what current technology can bring, including our focus on DX11 which will be released shortly as an update for Crysis 2, and we believe this work, added to our estimations of what the new hardware will provide, set up CryENGINE as a next generation engine for all consoles.”
