Yerli: “Crytek’s support for Wii U is definitely going to happen”

Crytek have revealed that software built with the company’s CryEngine is already close to fully running on the Wii U.

“Crytek’s support for Wii U is definitely going to happen,” stated Cevat Yerli, Crytek’s CEO. “We aren’t showing it but we are pretty much running it already.”

Yerli then continued to reveal that he was aiming for CryEngine to support “every platform that’s a major player in the industry of gaming.”

Whilst support is to be offered to the forthcoming Wii U, Crytek are also eyeing up Microsoft’s Kinect device.

“We are expanding in many ways, and some of that is more announced than others. Kinect is major driver for future platforms as well, so Kinect support is important. Having basic Kinect support in the CryEngine is one thing, but I’m talking about really supporting it deeply. CryEngine is going to have deep support.”
