Crytek boss Cevat Yerli believes that CryEngine 3 "already exists at the quality of [Epic’s] Unreal Engine 4... for three years now."
Epic games recently revealed their newest iteration of their long-running Unreal engines at E3, but Yerli insists it's nothing compared to Crytek's work.
“You can go back three years ago to the GDC videos. What we put out there is pretty much what Unreal Engine 4 put out now. And what many others are doing now too."
Yerli has insisted that CryEngine has a lot more to offer to game developers in terms of raw power for the next gen.
"We haven't really put out our latest stuff yet," he said. "Pretty soon you're going to see the next iteration of CryEngine, and I'm not putting a number behind it, just the next iteration of CryEngine. Very soon."
“But we already said, CryEngine 3 is next-gen ready since three years ago. We stand by that. If I look at what people call next-gen technology now, it's what we were seeing three years ago."
Yerli elaborated on their achievements. "We already had massive particle systems, we already had GPU rendering, all these things. Deferred shading. We had tessellation already since we shipped Crysis 2. We already had DX11."
“We didn't just talk it up as tech demos, we have games that are shipped and are doing it.”
