Crytek head to talk future of games graphics at Singapore event

The speakers roster for next month's GC Asia Conference has grown further with Crytek's Cervat Yerli set to deliver a keynote speech.

The co-founder and president of the German studio will give an address on the future of games graphics, drawing on his studio's experience making Far Cry and Crysis.

GC Asia Conference takes place on September 18th to 20th in Singapore at the Suntec International Convention & Exhibition Centre.

“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,” added 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.”
