Cervat Yerli: Next-gen consoles will go beyond my expectations
Cervat Yerli, founder and CEO of Crytek has been giving his impressions of how visuals will shape up on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Having created on of the most advanced game engines in the world Crytek know only too welll how the next gen machines are pushing forward the industry in terms of processing game visuals. He even revealed that his expectations will be exceeded by this new console generation.
Speaking in and interview with Eurogamer's Digital Foundry Yerli said, “The future will not be just about realism though, but also about new kinds of artistic expressions. The next few years will be great times for the PC community and console gamers.”
“In a talk I gave about the future of computer graphics in 2008,” he continued, “I said that the next-gen consoles would arrive in 2012/2013, and that we'd receive CG-quality rendering of games. These consoles will provide us a baseline to not just deliver that, but over the years to go beyond it. We will close the gap more and more between CG animation that people see and CG-quality games that they can play.”
Crytek's first next-gen effort is the Xbox One-exclusive launch title Ryse: Son Of Rome which controversially runs at 900p instead of full 1080p.
