Crytek Engineer Who Praised PS5 Over Xbox Series X Retracts Statements

You might have seen over at sister site Push Square the other day that a Crytek rendering engineer was making various statements (translated by a Persian Twitter user) about how the PS5 was easier to develop for than Xbox Series X. And now, in a weird turn of events, they've apparently retracted all of their statements.

The Twitter user who was sharing these quotes posted a new tweet yesterday suggesting that the engineer, Ali Salehi, no longer confirmed the content of the interview:

We're not quite sure what's happened here, but the Twitter user has also deleted all mention of the original interview quotes. It could be that they weren't translated properly, or perhaps someone higher up at Crytek stepped in and forced the tweets to be removed. Either way, we can put this one to bed for now.

What do you make of this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
