First Crysis coming to consoles – report

Korean Ratings Board lists impending port.

The first Crysis game is coming to Xbox 360, judging by a Korean Ratings Board listing spotted by Kotaku.

Crytek's PC-only shooter has subsequently popped up on the ESRB site too, for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

Korean games site Inven has reportedly received confirmation from EA Korea that the port is happening, though a release date has yet to be confirmed.

We've asked EA for further clarification. Stay tuned for an update.

Crytek boss Cevat Yerli didn't seem too interested in bringing the game to consoles when he spoke to Digital Foundry earlier this year.

"We wanted to move on to our next game and come up with a fresh setting to further develop the Crysis franchise," said Yerli.

"A port to consoles wouldn't have been easier or cheaper necessarily and we always want to innovate and thus offer improved and refined gaming experiences."

Crysis originally launched on PC back in 2007, picking up a 9/10 from Eurogamer.

"Personally I'd like to see where this astounding world-forging technology will take us," wrote Jim Rossignol in his Crysis review. "I can't wait to see what Crytek will do next."
