China-based company Tencent has licenced Crytek’s CryEngine 3 for its next online PC game.
The game engine will be used specifically by the Interactive Entertainment Service division of one of China’s largest online game communities.
“We selected CryEngine 3 after researching most available cutting-edge 3D game engines. CryEngine 3’s high quality graphics, built-in physics engine and powerful game creation toolset are exactly what we want,” said Tencent producer Weishitao.
“We’ve made a high quality playable game prototype within 3 months. It has been a great experience working with Crytek.”
CryEngine director Carl Jones added: “It’s a very exciting experience for us to have Tencent as our eighth CryEngine licensee in China.
“We’re delighted that Tencent have chosen CryENGINE for what promises to be a very interesting title.
“Our experienced support team has been working with Tencent for a while now and we’re all really impressed with the work from its developers, who are looking to achieve an ambitious vision.”
