VR is a super-hot thing right now, but Crytek hasn't made much noise on the wearable gaming world just yet. Until now. Crytek's Managing Director, Faruk Yerli, has now talked about Crytek entering the VR world.

Yerli said: "We are exploring VR right now. We want to show the world true VR experience can only come from CryEngine, the best one. We see VR as an important device for enthusiasts, then going to mainstream probably. We want to elevate what we can do here... we hope to one day deliver a fully-fleshed VR experience".

 

Yerli talked about the challenges of delivering VR to a wide audience, with the obvious physical limitations "in terms of what gameplay actions you can do". When it comes to motion sickness, Yerli added that Crytek has "already found solutions" for it. Yerli added that CryEngine is capable of using AMD's new LiquidVR technology "directly out of the box" in order to usher in lower latency in multiple GPU systems.
