Crytek has promised that any and all future Crysis titles will be playable in the 3rd dimension. The developer initially revealed that Crysis 2 will be playable in 3D on all major gaming platforms, including the 360 and PS3, at E3 this year. According to CVG, Crytek now wants to "associate the Crysis brand with 3D gaming..."
"Crysis on consoles for us is pretty much taking the ground that Crysis games will be 3D now and in the future," he said. "Console gamers haven't seen [the original] Crysis yet and when we launch Crysis 2 it's kind of like a re-launch of the franchise. We want to make sure people associate the Crysis brand with 3D gaming in the future."
"But we also want to make sure that it's for a reason - we want to turn the TV as well as the monitor in to a window into a new world. Once people play in 3D the way we've demonstrated, I don't think you'll want to not play in 3D ever again."
"I think that it will stay around. As soon as the first affordable 3DTVs arrive I think it's a no-brainer at that point, everyone will adapt. Initially there will be a more hardcore audience. I don't think every game will be 3D right away, but there will be some high-end production value games that will be 3D and will benefit from it."
Crysis 2 was originally set for a holiday release. It has now been delayed until 2011.
