Crytek denies working with new Xbox hardware

Crysis 2 developer says it has no knowledge of roadmap for next Microsoft console

Crytek has officially denied knowledge of Microsoft's next console, following rumours last week that it was already working with the successor to the Xbox 360.

"Crytek do not have any next generation hardware from Microsoft, nor do we know when Microsoft may announce future hardware or what that hardware will entail", read the short official statement.

"Crytek are working at pushing the boundaries of what current technology can bring, including our focus on DX11 which will be released shortly as an update for Crysis 2, and we believe this work, added to our estimations of what the new hardware will provide, set up CryENGINE as a next generation engine for all consoles."

The story originated with website videogamer.com whose "high-ranking industry source" also suggested the developer was working on Timesplitters 4 as a launch title for the new console. The shooter was not mentioned in the denial.
