Electronic Arts recently revealed that Crysis 3 would indeed arrive in 2013.  It was no secret that another Crysis game was in the works, considering how Crytek concluded Crysis 2.  As fans start counting the months that lie ahead in waiting for news about the game, Crytek has started to speak out about the development of the game.

Setting a standard in graphical fidelity this generation, the original Crysis on PC was ahead of its time.  Again, Crytek is looking to up the ante with Crysis 3.  Speaking on Twitter, CEO and President of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, spoke on the graphical performance of the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions of the upcoming shooter.

Yerli said that “Crysis 3 will push the Xbox 360 and PS3 to their limits.  Ahead of Crysis 2, but Crysis 3 on PC will be clearly ahead.”

Yerli also commented on Crysis 3 in the company’s reveal of the title earlier this week:

“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”

Crysis 3 is due out in the Spring of 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
