Crytek CEO: If Next Gen Is Not Out Soon Consoles Will Fall Behind Tablets

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli believes that the greatest threat to consoles doesn’t come from PC, but rather from tablets.

"The current generations are drying out, and the longer we wait for the next generation of consoles, the higher the likelihood that they could fall behind tablets in terms of being the first thing people reach for when the time comes to play games," he said. "Tablets are putting pressure on the gaming industry, and taking over in some ways, so that should be kept in mind."

"At this stage, we can't comment on or even speculate as to when, or if, the next generation will be announced. But we think that it's time for the next generation and we think that it's overdue already," the Crytek boss added.
