I got the impression that he thought Ubisoft was going to take CryEngine 2 and port it to consoles like they did with Far Cry, which can't happen (at least not with Ubisoft).

If he meant they would make a Crysis type of game with the original Far Cry engine, I don't think that will happen either. It sounds like there is quite a bit of new stuff in Crysis that you probably couldn't do without major changes to the old engine (hence why Crytek wrote a new engine). They could do another Far Cry remake (a not-crappy one for Wii would be nice), but probably nothing approaching Crysis.

Here's the official statement from Crytek CEO.

Cevat Yerli statement on recent Console rumors
http://incrysis.com/crysis/index.php...d=250&Itemid=2

Quote:
"We hope we aren't disappointing anyone, but contrary to any rumours that may be in circulation, neither Crytek nor any third parties are currently engaged in developing Crysis for console platforms. Our company's sole focus at this time is to complete Crysis for PC as well and as quickly as possible, so we can release it in a timely fashion to all who have shown such a strong interest in playing our game, while insuring we meet the high quality of game play they have come to expect.

While we are gratified by the level of interest shown in Crysis by console owners and fans, and are of course interested in next generation consoles for potential future developments, it is the company's policy not to discuss future plans before the fact.

We hope that clarifies the issue and thanks to all for your interest.

Thank you,

Cevat Yerli

CEO, Crytek GmbH"

Yeah I'll second that. It was just a tech demo to show off the HDR in action.

I personally enjoyed playing Farcry. By the way, HDR wasn't originally in the game - that was added quite some time after release in a patch.

HDR wasn't even added until patch 1.3

Far Cry had great gameplay. Just because it had good graphics at release people call it a tech demo.

QFT. I didn't like Far Cry because of the graphics, I liked it because it was fun to sneak through the bushes and headshot an unsuspecting merc.

I call it a techdemo after playing it from beginning to end. I did not like the gameplay.
