Crytek open to making a PS3 exclusive |


At E3, Crytek announced an Xbox 360 exclusive called Codename: Kingdoms. While the Microsoft deal may keep them busy for a while, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli says that they’re very open to making an exclusive for the PS3 too.

“We are an independent studio so we can (a) Do whatever we want and (b) [Have the freedom] to announce something else next week if we want to,” said Yerli.

“Sony is a partner that we would definitely love to work with. A [PS3 exclusive] is something we considered before – we talked about it a lot, but for reasons of portfolio or timing in the past it didn’t work out. But that doesn’t mean in the future it wouldn’t work.”

Aside from Codename: Kingdoms, Crytek is now working on Crysis 2 which is also coming out on PS3.

  • I don’t think that Microsoft will let that happen. Crytek may think that they are free to do what ever they want, but Microsoft defenitely has the adequate means to keep Crytek from developing a PS3 exclusive.

  • I disagree that Microsoft is going to force Crytek from developing a PS3 exclusive because they are an independent studio.

    In the past it may have been easy for Microsoft to push a little money towards a company and make them exclusive to Microsoft but that was when the 360 was dominating the U.S. market. Since the price drop and release of the slim, the PS3 has been gaining momentum and companies take notice of that so it would be foolish on Crytek’s part not to capitalize on the shift in sales in Sony’s favor.
