German developer Crytek has today announced the release of what it's calling the first "truly Next-Gen-Ready" game engine, the CryEngine 3, which is now available to all developers for licensed use.
Unlike the CryEngine 2, which was largely sidelined to the PC platform, the CryEngine 3 offers an "all-in-one development solution" according to Crytek. This allows the engine to not only cater for existing Xbox 360, PS3, and DX9/10 based hardware, but also "all major upcoming platforms" as well.
The engine's scalable computation and graphics for incoming next-gen hardware (which Crytek's CEO, Cevat Yerli has previously earmarked to land around 2012) also introduces what Crytek is referring to as CryEngine 3 Live Create.
Live Create converts and optimises assets from a single PC dev machine that can then output in real-time to Xbox 360, PS3, and PC machines. This allows developers to make "instant, cross-platform changes" to a project, which "significantly reduces the risk of multiplatform development" according to Crytek.
"With CryEngine 3 we are releasing the best development solution available today and tomorrow. With its scalable graphics and computation it is next-gen ready and with new features like CryEngine 3 Live Create the best choice for game developers and companies developing serious games applications alike. It is the only game engine solution that enables real-time development and can ensure teams are able to maximise their own creativity, save budget and create greater gaming experiences," said Cevat Yerli, CEO & President of Crytek.
