Crytek has denied claims that it is currently developing titles for Microsoft’s next Xbox console.
Earlier this week, a high ranking” source said that the developer is working on Timesplitters 4 for the new machine, that it will use DirectX 11 will, and that Microsoft will unveil the console at E3 2012.
A statement issued to IGN refutes all of this, emphasising the studio’s commitment to current hardware.
Relating to the recent rumours, Crytek do not have any next generation hardware from Microsoft, nor do we know when Microsoft may announce future hardware or what that hardware will entail,” the statement reads.
Crytek are working at pushing the boundaries of what current technology can bring, including our focus on DX11 which will be released shortly as an update for Crysis 2, and we believe this work, added to our estimations of what the new hardware will provide, set up CryENGINE as a next generation engine for all consoles.”
