Crytek are “very happy” with the Wii U

It sounds like CryEngine will be pumping out graphics like this on the Wii U.

This is certainly a more uplifting piece of news than the last quip we heard from Crytek about the Wii U. Cevat Yerli, the company’s CEO, has put all doubt about the system’s power to rest, saying that their team is “very happy” with the specs.

The specs are very good. It’s a challenge for designers, but once thought through it can add value, and that’s what ultimately important. Our guys in Nottingham they are very happy with their tests on the dev kits and they’re excited about it.

After all these rounds of “maybe, maybe not” from developers, seeing a developer with as much stature as Crytek enthused about the Wii U is certainly a good thing. Now, all we need is a game announcement from them…

    Hopefully FarCry 3

      That would be very cool to see.

    • Biohazard

      Far Cry 3 is developed by a wholly different team from Ubisoft. In fact, Crytek has been very distant from the Far Cry series since the first one, which is why many people consider Crysis to be the spiritual sequel to Far Cry.

      I would like to see Far Cry 3 on Wii U. Think of how cool and easy it would be to do map design with that touch screen!!!!

    These are the guys famous for making even the most powerful PC graphics cards scream in pain. If their impressed by the Wii U, we know that this is gonna be a beast of a machine.

    consoles are at least 3x pc in terms of power per meg/clock etc then theres nintendo who take it to a whole other level of efficent and wiiu doesnt need above 1080p native resolution so expect fine darn graphics…

    It was just announced that Crytek are going to be creating the next Homefront game due out in 2014. Probably safe to assume with their comment in this article that they would be releasing it on Wii-U.

      Hopefully, they’ll make the campaign longer than 4 hours.
