Avatar director James Cameron Loves The 3D Tech Found In Crysis 2

Few studios are more confident about their project. We've seen a whole lot of positive talk from Crytek before...and we're assuming they can back it up.

Crysis 2 will boast stereoscopic 3D and last year, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli said he hoped gamers would associate Crysis 2 with 3D gaming. He's gone even further in more recent comments to Edge, saying the upcoming sequel would be a "super high-end 3D experience on all formats." Thing is, it seems the team is well versed in the new technology; they've been working with it for several years now. One previous project was "developed exclusively in stereoscopic 3D" and that happened over two years ago. Added Yerli:

"So we've done a lot of research into 3D experiences, the UI and whatnot. And a lot of this knowledge is now in the Crysis 2 3D experience. That's why we have, in my opinion, a benchmark 3D implementation.

I'll even claim it's the same as Avatar's status in 3D. James Cameron has seen Crysis 2, and he loved what he saw because his eyes are trained for 3D more than anyone else's, and that makes me confident that we have a super-high-end 3D experience on all formats."

Wow, we didn't know Cameron had gone eyes-on with the game. And if Crysis 2 is anything like "Avatar" in terms of impressive 3D visuals, it really could be a benchmark 3D experience for the gaming industry. On the other hand, we sort of have to see it before we believe it, and we know that Crytek and Yerli like to boast a bit.
