In a recent Gamescon live stream discussion, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli discusses his plan for Crysis 3's graphics. Because the game will be put out on consoles as well as on the PC, it's a tough choice to figure out how good to make the game look versus what performance they can get out of consoles. Obviously the PC can power through much more than a console, which is where the trouble comes in.

In the live stream, Yerli said:

PCs are so far ahead, so making Crysis 3 look great on PC at the same time as running fantastic on consoles is going to be the challenge we didn’t have in Crysis 2, because PCs and consoles were closer, and in Crysis 1 we only focused on PCs. There is unfortunately always a compromise that we have to take, but at the same time we’re trying to not compromise the PC but push the consoles. [Transcription credit to PC Gamer]
