Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told consumer publication CVG this week disagreed with reports that the Wii U is less powerful than current generation hardware platforms.
“From my perspective I do not understand the public’s concerns that the Wii U is weaker than PS3 and 360,” Yerli said.
“That I cannot see. From my perspective the Wii U is minimum as powerful as Xbox 360.”
He added that CryEngine 3 runs beautifully on the Wii U based on an unannounced title in development from another developer. The company is not in development on a project for the hardware yet.
Nintendo has not issued technical hardware specifications for the Wii U, though it will utilize a CPU by IBM Corp. and a custom Radeon graphics chipset by AMD Inc to relay high-definition visuals.
The Wii U is scheduled to be released in 2012.
