Crysis 3 not to support Directx 9?

We have all seen the Crysis 3 Trailers for the PC running off of Directx 11. But do you think the game will work for Directx 9 based operating systems(more specifically Windows XP)? I know that it is based off the Cryengine 3 game engine, which supports DirectX 9, but do you think that the game will still not be DirectX 9 compatible. I don't want to pay $100 just for a new vertex and graphics engine by Microsoft. Also, running games in Directx 11 is more demanding than running in Directx 9.

And just one more thing. Do you think the game will support Linux and OpenGL? (probably not, but Crysis 2 was ported to the PS3 which runs OpenGL right?)

Dx11 can* be more demanding, or less, or the same. It's all about optimization and how the Dx11 features are used. For instance with WoW, Dx11 improves performance.

Sorry. My bad. Tessellation enabled can be more demanding.

That's not even the point. Do you think Crysis 3 will support Direct X 9?

"We want to make sure as much as is humanly possible can translate from a DX11 variant into a DX9 variant, that will work almost as good on an Xbox console to whatever extent we can, because we don't want the experience to be different between the platforms," Rasmus Højengaard, director of creative development at Crytek, told Eurogamer.

True. But BattleField 3 and Need for Speed the Run didn't run on XP, but they did on the consoles.
