RUMOR: Crysis 3 Is Running On Wii U Hardware At Crytek

The Wii isn’t the graphical powerhouse the Xbox 360 and PS3 are. That being said, Nintendo is upping the horsepower with their next system, the Wii U, to feature graphics that are, at least, on par with the current gen HD consoles. This latest rumor would confirm just that.

A poster at NeoGAF claims that Crytek developers of the Crysis franchise, have Crysis 3 up and running on Wii U hardware.

Let’s be clear: they state that Crysis 3 is NOT in development for the Wii U, but instead Crytek wanted to test out the full power of the system. They were able to get the demo up and running at 720p and had some impressive frame rates, particle effects, and no pop-up textures.

The game is running in DirectX 9 and could be hampered by the fact that the touch pad’s screen can’t be turned off, as it constantly streams 480p. Crytek apparently speculates that they could reach 1080p if they can turn the touch pad’s screen off.

According to the post, we could see this demo at E3 in a couple weeks, merely to show off the power of the Wii U.

Again, this is merely a rumor, but I’m sure we’ll see what Nintendo has up their sleeves in terms of graphical capabilities next month.
