Crytek confirms CryEngine 3 support for PlayStation 4

Crytek confirmed the CryEngine 3 will support PlayStation 4, Sony's next-generation console, according to an announcement on its official site today.

The company said in the announcement that the engine is already with PlayStation 4 developers and that the studio will "empower" CryEngine 3 licensees "to achieve their own ambitions on the console."

"Our CryEngine technology has always provided head-turning results across platforms," said Carl Jones, Crytek's director of global business development, Carl Jones said in the statement. "By supporting developers as they build for the future on PlayStation 4, we are cementing our position at the forefront of the industry and helping others to create the best games they can in this exciting period of transition."

The PlayStation 4 was announced at Soný's press conference held in Manhattan on Feb. 20. Sony plans to showcase more than 40 games across the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 during its press conference at E3 2013.

Late last month, Crytek announced CryEngine 3 support for Microsoft's next-generation console, the Xbox One. The studio had announced that its engine is "already primed for Xbox One development," and it "recently became an officially licensed provider of middleware and tools for Xbox One, and will support the platform as well as equipping CryEngine 3 licensees with the advanced toolset required to achieve their own games for the system."
