Crytek's CEO and president Cevat Yerli says that the next generation of consoles will have much more in common with traditional PC development, giving PC focused developers the upper-hand in creating games when compared to developers of the current generation who focus solely on developing for consoles. In an interview

He needs to re-learn about quality gaming, and bin the infatuation with graphics. I don't care what format he produces for, the reviews of Crysis 3 were terrible. Back to the drawing board!

Hopefully this greatly increases the chances of having a PC version of all major AAA titles (minus exclusives of course as I doubt Sony would ever release a PC Version of God of War for example) since it will take a LOT less effort to make them whereas now, PC's and consoles have completely different processor and even GPU architecture. In addition, hopefully this also means no more crappy "console ports" BECAUSE there isn't the vast difference in hardware. PC devs should feel more at home on all platforms.

So, they're stuck with making games (much the same way as Unreal) and they are going to try to make money with licensing an engine to those that are creative enough to caugh up a new game.
Now, tell me. If someone's creative enough to make a new game, why would this engine be even considered? They'd want to differentiate themselves rather than be just another Crysis/Unreal clone. Minecraft gets away just fine without this engine or any other.
Crysis turned sour like Unreal did, you just need to move on.

It's all very well trying to sell an engine, but this engine has high overheads. Which means that it has cost them a lot of dosh to make. The problem with that is it 'scares' future devs away, as it limits the amount of PC owners that can run it to it's potential. Like Dead Space 4 was canned due to poor DS3 sales, Crysis 3 has not returned the sales that was expected. It's all well being a niche market, but it's a fat lot of good if it doesn't have a good game behind it as well as forking out to play it -purely for graphics alone!
Graphics have always been the penis extension of the PC world, it's boring unless it's a bloody good game behind it, even then there's a limit to what you pay to combine the two.
Dishonored and Far Cry 3 blew the competition away, neither have high over heads and certainly dishonored doesn't have graphics to write home about.
Says it all really....
except if your in Crytek's bubble of a world.

tbh, C3 on "low" works and looks (much) better on my PC than FC3. Also, for consoles it was tweaked so settings were even little further bellow "low" and it still looks darn good.

Also, it is far too early to compare crytech to UE2.5 and UE3 engines. Crytech didn't really mange to sell it's engine. I know of two games - Age of conan and that sniper POS. Are there any other?

On the other hand, UE3 is used widely, to mention some, mass effect series, part of tomb raider series, time shift and bunch of others really, the list is huge, take a look:

Unreal vs Crytek. Isn't even close. Unreal is used way more for games than Crytek. Saw Crysis today at the store, had to laugh, they had a million copies. Sales guy was like, ya I don't get it why it's not selling. I told him because it's a piece of shit. MOH is like $20 bucks now, used is $14! Still refuse to buy it. Sorry EA, go F yourself.

Crysis 1 was revolution, at least in sandbox graphics. Not many games can claim that, C1 can. Is gameplay crap? Probably (meter of opinion, is GTA crap? ) but did it do good to push everyone else's butts? Yea, it kinda did.
