Though Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli thinks highly of the Wii U, he doesn't seem to believe the German developer has "a business case" that "justifies" developing a game for the system. Yerli adds, however, that Crytek's impressive engine (powering Crysis 3
next) has already been licensed for a Wii U project.
"It doesn't mean that CryEngine 3
doesn't run on Wii U – it actually runs beautifully," Yerli told CVG
. "In fact, there actually is a game in development from a respected developer that we will be announcing. I've seen the game running and it looks really great."
As for the prowess of the tech powering Nintendo's next console, Yerli thinks it's "minimum as powerful as Xbox 360."
