Avatar film director James Cameron has seen Crytek's Crysis 2 running in glorious 3D and he "loved what he saw" reveals studio president Cevat Yerli.
What was Cameron doing there? "...that's another story," teases Yerli. Crysis 2 isn't their first 3D project, which is why it's a "benchmark 3D implementation".
"A lot of this knowledge is now in the Crysis 2 3D experience,” said Cevat Yerli in an interview with Edge magazine, speaking of Crytek's past tinkering with 3D. “That’s why we have, in my opinion, a benchmark 3D implementation.”
In fact he believes it's our industries equivalent of James Cameron's Avatar. “I’ll even claim it’s the same as Avatar’s status in 3D,” added the Crytek boss.
"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.”
More curious now is why was Hollywood superstar director James Cameron watching Crysis 2 in the first place? Yerli would only say "that’s another story." Crysis 2 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC March 22nd in the US, and the 25th in the UK.
