In an interview with AusGamers, Crytek boss and general tech-head, Cevat Yerli, promised that while the game will look good on the consoles, it will revive the old "can it run Crysis?" question for PC.
"Honestly, we will push the PC to its limit... to its boundaries," Cevat enthused. "The idea is that PCs will be next-gen gaming, consoles will be current-gen maximising it. We can’t deliver next-gen perse on current-gen; we already did that with Crysis 2, you know. So it’s going to be maximising the current generation on consoles, and giving you a glimpse of next-gen -- or what it means in a visual, and a simulation, and a richness of a world -- on a PC.
"We will definitely make sure that Crysis 3 will resurrect the question again “Can it run Crysis 3?” and we will melt PCs down," he said with a laugh.
The rest of our video interview (and transcript) talks about Crysis 3 level-design, dedicated servers for multiplayer and more.
