Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has claimed that Xbox 360 exclusive Codename: Kingdoms will push the console "to its limits" and offer gamers "a genuinely new" interactive entertainment experience.
Asked when we'd learn more about the mysterious title - revealed at E3 2010 with a video featuring a bloodied gladiator - he initially told CVG: "I can't really talk about that at the moment, maybe at E3, maybe before, I don't know yet."
Pressed on the studio's ambitions to branch out from the shooter genre, however, he said: "As a company we can't just make shooters, we need to breed genuinely new forms of entertainment and interactive experiences, and I think Kingdoms is a new interactive entertainment experience.
"Working with Microsoft allows us to do something really new and awesome from our perspective, and from gamers' perspective I think they'll have a very different experience with Kingdoms."
No PC version for this game.
