I have used a lot of cryengine and sandbox editor .. crysis is one of my all time favourite games (crysis 2 was a disaster however) .. and i can confirm that UE4 is nothing special.

Unreal is a lot of hype for their licensing business, and a ton of gamer kid fanboys who have no idea about tech.

I think Epic will have some trouble licencing UE4.. This generation many developers didn't have their own engines so turned to UE3. Next generation we have already seen next gen engines from countless publishers for their developers to use.. I don't see UE4 sharing the same success.

I don't think its really the 'graphics' per say that is impressive about UE4, more the ease of development side which was pretty damn good looking. So yes, I still expect to see a crap ton of UE4 titles throwing around.

Unreal has lost some of its lust. Its good see engine warfare. The cry engine looks like it has the edge, but I bet most developers would rather work with the unreal because of its ease.

Unreal Engine, especially UDK, has had a lot of appeal because I have used it to create games myself. Unless Crytek releases a similar package, I'm pretty much limited to whatever Epic puts out.

CryEngine 3: Next gen graphics before it was cool
In all seriousness though, it all depends on your definition of next gen, doesn't it?

Yes, I thought it was great that you could see lighting changes in real time. I always hated having to render my entire level just to see a lighting change (and with a huge level, rendering can take 30 minutes or more).

If you mean a CryEngine equivalent of UDK, haven't you seen this? http://www.crydev.net/dm_eds/download_detail.php?id=4
