Crytek's CEO and president Cevat Yerli says that the next generation of consoles will have much more in common with traditional PC development, giving PC focused developers the upper-hand in creating games when compared to developers of the current generation who focus solely on developing for consoles.

In an interview with Official Xbox Magazine, Yerli said, "I think the next console generation is going to be more a mix of the top devs - they'll be much more PC-driven this time around. In fact, I believe - oh, I can't talk more about that. Let's say this: PC devs will be much more comfortable than last gen console devs."

Yerli went on to say that it has been difficult for PC focused developers to adjust their technology for consoles in the past, but this time it should be much easier. He also continued to stop himself short as he tried to talk about the upcoming generation without spoiling any secrets.
