Crytek's Cevat Yerli has suggested that home consoles are on their last legs, and that the next generation - the one featuring the Wii U and the PS4 and whatever Microsoft come up with - will be the last.
"Of course there are still hardcore gamers who sit for an hour to install and then play for eight hours. But these consumers are becoming the minority. Today's gamers buy a game for 99 cents, download it and play it for 15 to 20 minutes per day over a period of two months - and then they move on."
Yerli also revealed that CryEngine licensees were creating games for Wii U, but that Crytek are not planning any in-house development themselves, also distancing the company from the Vita, which he labelled as an "uncertain" platform.
"The Playstation Vita is currently too uncertain for us as a platform. Technically, I find the Vita very appealing, and have fun with it - no question. From a business perspective it is a bit too late."
