Social games titan Tencent licences CryEngine 3

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.”
