Crytek’s founder Cevat Yeril did an interview recently in which he said that Crytek’s CryEngine 3 is just as capable as Epic’s Unreal Engine 4. Yeril pointed out that his company’s engine has been showing off GPU rendering, deferred shading and massive particle systems already and that previous versions of the engine have already been doing DX11 and tessellation.
It already exists for three years now. 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. We haven’t really put out our latest stuff yet.
We have already seen what the Unreal Engine 4 is capable of and now we will have to wait to see what Crytek’s CryEngine 3 is truly capable of.
