Crytek has announced that it is currently working with Improbable for a new AAA game, built using CRYENGINE and SpatialOS. Crytek claimed that it is excited about the possibilities for developers offered by SpatialOS and its next-generation multiplayer gameplay, and this new game will aim to showcase these possibilities.
Crytek has also announced that it is planning to work closely with Improbable to create a fully-featured SpatialOS Game Development Kit for CRYENGINE for its forthcoming titles.
According to the team, progress has already been made on this, and CRYENGINE developer Automaton has created its own open source integration with SpatialOS for its forthcoming 1000-player battle royale title Mavericks: Proving Grounds.
“We’re proud to partner with Improbable, but we want it to be the start of something bigger. We want to work with other technologists, tool makers, and developer services to create a best-in-class and ever-improving experience. If you share our vision, please reach out to us, so we can build a better age of online games and virtual worlds together.”
Crytek will reveal more details about this new game at a later date!
