Crytek CEO and president Cevat Yerli is to give a keynote address at the GC Asia Conference (GCAC) in Singapore next month on the future of gaming graphics.
The often-outspoken Yerli, whose company created Far Cry
, will discuss the technical and artistic implications of increased graphical realism and its likely effect on the future of the industry. The topic will be a familiar one for Yerli, who also hosted a session at the GC Developers Conference
in Leipzig, Germany earlier in the month.
"The technology available today is light years ahead of what was generally available just five years ago," said Yerli. "Add those advancements to increasing technical expertise as we learn more about graphically creating immersive worlds, and the conditions are right to have graphics play a major role in telling the story of a game."
"Cevat Yerli and Crytek are not only major names in Germany, but also the global video game market," said Frank Sliwka, conference director of GCAC. "His keynote will be one of the highlights of the conference and I'm confident he'll inspire the audience to view graphics as an element that is finally capable of telling stories on the level of cinema."
GCA and GCAC is due to take place from September 18th to 20th in Singapore, at the Suntec International Convention & Exhibition Centre. Further details can be found at the official website
