EDIT: wait why is everyone doubting this? wasn't it already established that the graphics are gonna suck?

The game has been optimized for console hardware. Since Crytek is aiming to keep a balance between console and PC graphics, yes, Crysis 2 will be less taxing on hardware.

I have a feeling that they are going to degrade the graphics even more on crysis 3 because they will move into the Mobile phone industry...
ftw.

Worse graphics on a new engine, haha
The only reason for this is because of the port for consoles. I was told it was a necessary sacrafice they had to make since they are moving away from being PC-exclusive.whatever... that isn't the only way. Devs have dumbed down console ports in the past.

Even though Crytek knows they will lose a large community of the PC gamers, they are expecting a lot of success with the port to consoles.
In the end it adds up to the ultimate sacrafice of, well, making the PC graphics worse.
And where would they get these numbers from? Total speculation, not what they would do.
Essentially Crytek is moving away from the PC gaming community to the more profitable console gaming community.

EDIT:
Some more information posted later on...
Guys, this isn't a "troll" thread. And continuing to say I'm lying isn't going to help anyone.

I'm just informing you on what I've been told.
I have no idea if this information is accuuate, but this is what my friend told me. And he's the one designing the game.

I am aware that it is not a port TO the PC, but the graphics of the PC and console versions had to be at roughly the same level. Remember, the game has to be optimized to run on both consoles and PCs while keeping the quality the same. Since the graphics hardware of consoles can't keep up, Crytek's only choice was to make the PC graphics worse. Again, not true. You need to have a reliable source on this. Quote your friend with his actual name, so we can confirm this. And again, look at oblivion. PC looks better than the PS3 or XBOX360. By far.
However, this is still achievable while incorporating DX11 features.

What a previous poster said was correct, when a game goes multiplatform there is going to be a sacrafice in terms of graphics:

Those pics are from the consoles. Let's see the PC's pics, hmm??

Dont care what you all think, But myself i think the graphics are gonna be noticeably better than the console version, And it will run better because the game is set in a city now, So you can load things a sneaky way without the game looking liek turd

Crysis is pretty fun I have confidence Crysis 2 will blow away the first one. Better coding, DX11, etc. Just because their throwing it on the consoles means they'll downgrade on the PC. The first is legendary in terms of visuals, they wouldn't sacrifice that. Or at least I hope they don't...

This is a completely rubbish thread. The original Crysis would have ran FINE on the consoles, if the developers would have taken the time to do it. The consoles run on a 7800GTX / HD2600 (roughly, one console is one, the other console is the other). Crysis is EASILY playable at 30 FPS (a cap that a lot of console games do have), using MEDIUM settings on the PC, with those GPU's. Even on Medium, Crysis still looks amazing for its time.

I see absolutely NO REASON why Crysis 2 can't run on consoles, and still look amazing on the PC. Assuming it has the same (roughly) performance increases between the settings, the consoles would use probably "Medium" quality graphics from the PC, while the PC is able to go up to Very High.

Crysis 2 will have better graphics overall. But it won't be as good looking as it could've been I'll tell you that.
